Dani Alves insists Juventus deserved AC Milan victory

Porto, who have won their last nine league games and not conceded a goal in their last five, will not go quietly, however.

"But we'll be going out to win this game, and keep a clean sheet". "We want this match to come, to aim to pass the round and be in the quarterfinal draw".

A controversial 2-1 league win over AC Milan on Friday, in which he scored the deciding penalty - "the biggest of my career" - sparked Juve's ambitions in Europe. Friday was a great game with one team who deserved to win, which is Juventus, against a team who are doing well this season, but the 17 points between the two teams before the game and the 20 after are a fair indication. So much is resting on this game, the tie is far from over, and it'd be foolish to think the job is done.

Casillas was nearly certainly referring to Barcelona's remarkable achievement last week when they recovered from a 4-0 first-leg defeat to beat Paris St Germain 6-1 at the Nou Camp.

Sami Khedira has revealed that he intends to move to the MLS before hanging up his boots, but is now in no rush to leave Juventus as he looks to win the Champions League with the Italian outfit. Porto have lost only four of their 14 Champions League away games since 2013/14, so they may at least have a chance of salvaging some pride. Milan's reaction to the defeat has also made the headlines, but Allegri says Italians are getting it all wrong as he tried to shift the focus towards Tuesday.

"In 28 games we have won 23 and drawn one, sadly losing four, so we can not be criticised as a team".

"Porto know how to play these kinds of games, so we have to be strong, make sure we don't go out there thinking it's all done and dusted".

"There are plenty of risks, above all because nothing can be taken for granted in football", Allegri said. I want to play at a high level for a few more years.

With a sixth straight Serie A title looking likely and another Italian Cup final on the horizon, Juventus has become nearly obsessively focused on the Champions League.

He hinted it could be his last Champions League campaign with the Italians, saying: "I hope this is the year we win it".
