Allegri demands intensity Juve had against Atletico ahead of Ajax showdown

SHOWS: TURIN, ITALY (APRIL 15, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) JUVENTUS COACH, MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI, SAYING: "(The absence of striker Mario Mandzukic) does not upset anything because there were many possibilities that Mandzukic would not play.

Now I just have to decide who gets to play in his place." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) JUVENTUS COACH, MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI, SAYING: "Tomorrow, the first leg result counts for nothing.

Tomorrow it will be a decisive match in which we must also show the same intensity we showed against Atletico Madrid.

Tomorrow we will have to do two things: have great respect for Ajax when we will defend in our half and, more importantly, we need to be more lucid with our passing and we need to be more accurate in building attacks which we did less well in Amsterdam, with great opportunity to develop important offensive actions.

If we do those things, we can progress to the next round." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) JUVENTUS COACH, MASSIMILIANO ALLEGRI, SAYING: "Cristiano (Ronaldo) has an extraordinary quality: when the match starts he becomes another player, you can read it on his face.

As for the captain, tomorrow the captain will be (striker Paulo) Dybala if he plays or otherwise I believe Bonucci.

I don't remember the hierarchies of the captains well." STORY: Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri on Monday (April 15) said his side will have to play with the same intensity showed against Atletico Madrid if they want to best Ajax in their Champions League quarter-final second leg clash on Tuesday (April 16).

Allegri said he was taking nothing for granted going into the game.

"The first leg result counts for nothing," he told reporters, adding that Juventus need to improve on their display in Amsterdam.

"We need to be more lucid with our passing and we need to be more accurate in building attacks which we did less well in Amsterdam, and we must show great respect for Ajax.

"We must also show the same intensity we showed against Atletico Madrid... If we do those things, we can progress to the next round." Allegri confirmed that forward Mario Mandzukic would miss the match through injury but he could count on the skills of his Portuguese talisman Cristiano Ronaldo.

"When the match starts he becomes another player, you can read it on his face".

Ajax have played seven away games in the competition this season, including the qualifying rounds, and are still unbeaten on the road.

In the previous round, they won 4-1 at Real Madrid after losing 2-1 at home.
