KOMPAS.com – Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is confident to call his team the best in the Champions League this season.
According to Allegri, Juventus is the champion's favorite because he is qualified for qualified teams and tactics.
"There are a lot of teams in the Champions League that have improved tactics, but it is not our level," Allegri was quoted as saying by Football Italia's BolaSport.com.

"The biggest difficulty in fighting foreign teams in the Champions League is that they all move for 90 minutes," Allegri said.
