Team Focus

Juventus

They almost did it last season, but it would have been a monumental effort by one Portuguese man if they were able to complete their elusive mission. 

But they try again, and with the newcomers of Ramsey and Rabiot coming in to add more ideas and flair to an offence that became very one-dimensional, they have to at least be up there with potential winners. Still not clear favorites, but with the squad they have, the coach and the finisher at the top; if they play their cards right they may finally get their hands on that trophy.

Key Player

Love him or hate him, he is the epitome of a big game player who thrives on the big occasion. He knows why he signed for Juventus and he is very clear in wanting to be the man that finally brings that trophy back to Turin. 

Whilst also picking up the trophy with three different teams to match Clarence Seedorf's feat. 

People say he is declining, he has grown older and is not as sharp as he once was. But there is one man who still believes in his ability and desire to win, and that is Cristiano himself. And not sure that you want to bet against him scoring in the Champions League.

The Boss

He suffered a lot at Chelsea and looking back, many Blues fans are beginning to appreciate what he was able to achieve in such a short period of time. 

He's been rewarded by being given the biggest job in Italy, and beyong securing a ninth Scudetto in a row, it's all about that Champions League. And Sarri has at least done what neither Conte or Allegri were able to do; and that is win a European trophy. 

Coming in with a vastly different philosophy from his predecessors, his offensive passing style might be the remedy that Juventus need to finish off games in the knockout stages.
