Free-scoring Juve please Alessio

SoccerNews in Serie A 8 Nov 2012


Angelo Alessio was satisfied with Juventus’ display in their 4-0 victory over FC Nordsjaelland and claimed they could even have scored more.

Juve remain third in Group E of the Champions League, one point behind joint leaders Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea, after recording their first victory in Europe this season.

Goals from Claudio Marchisio, Arturo Vidal, Sebastian Giovinco and Fabio Quagliarella sealed the comprehensive victory for the hosts at Juventus Stadium.

And assistant Alessio, standing in for head coach Antonio Conte, felt the margin of victory might have been bigger.

“We created a great deal (and) on top of the four goals we could’ve had a few more,” Alessio said.

“We pressed the ball in every area of the field and played the style of football we needed to.”

Alessio highlighted the depth of the Juve squad, with Alessandro Matri and Sebastian Giovinco starting up front as Mirko Vucinic missed the game through injury.

“Giovinco played very well; we know his qualities very well. It’s a shame Matri didn’t get a goal, but he too played well,” he said.

“Conte chooses the strikers game by game, based in part on the characteristics of our opponents. The important thing is for them to be ready, just as Fabio Quagliarella was tonight.”

Chelsea’s 3-2 win over Shakhtar leaves Group E on finely balanced with two rounds remaining, a fact Alessio is well aware of.

“Of course, we absolutely have to beat Chelsea at home in the next game and earn our place in the next round,” he said.
