The Bianconeri connected three Serie A wins in a row, and now with a win over the Premier league champions, Allegri’s side can seal the Champions league knockout stage. But it’s far from over, as the Citizens who currently sit on the top having one point more than Juve, surely will want to bounce back from a heavy home defeat to Liverpool in last round. Further, it was Juventus who beat Man City at Etihad and with the next round bringing the clash between Man City and Sevilla, Pellegrini’s man will want to spoil Juve’s plans and stun the Italians. Both teams are having injury problems, so it will be interesting to see how both will lineup this night in Turin.

Juventus v Manchester City Live Streams
Manchester City arrived in Turin on Tuesday (24 November) in readiness to face Juventus, with top spot up for grabs in the UEFA Champions League Group D on Wednesday (25 November).
As you said it’s important to qualify for the first time to the next stage of the Champions League. We have qualified the last two years and I think that is very unlikely to have the same draw against Barcelona. This year I think that is important to be at the top of the group not only to avoid Barcelona or any other important team, but because I think that it’s an important test for us tomorrow to try to win in a difficult stadium here in Turin – this would allow us to win the group.”
“No, I think that that always the most difficult thing for the other team is the quality of players that Juventus has, they a very strong squad. With quality squad they won the title for several years and they reached the final of the Champions League last year. We know they are not at their best moment but I’m sure that tomorrow we will find a team team that wants to qualify also as the first in the group.”
