Juventus manager Max Allegri says clinching their Europa League playoff with Nantes is crucial.
Juve are going into the second-leg tie in France with the aggregate score set at 1-1.
“We need to go through because in the last three years we went out in the Champions League Round of 16,” said Allegri.
“I see tomorrow as a Final, a one-off, because away goals no longer count double. We will play it on their turf and fight it out on level terms for passage to the next phase. It’s 50-50 for qualification.
“It won’t be easy, as Nantes have some good players like Blas, who is left-footed, and the strikers tend to track back to help the defence. They are dangerous on the counter-attack.
“Winning away from home in Europe is never easy. We know the atmosphere we’ll face at the start of the game and we must shake it off. We must prepare for 90 minutes and hope that will be enough, that is our objective.”
