First place? “We can still reach the first place. We have to win tomorrow.”

Booing vs Genoa? “I’m a professional, I’ve been doing this job for years. I’m focused on what I have to do on the pitch.”

Time at Juventus? “I did some things well, others not so well. I think I’ve grown tactically. I’ve spoken to Allegri. I need to score goals, it hasn’t happened yet this season, and maybe assists to help the team.”

Is the best of Rabiot yet to come? “I think so too. I’m young, I have skills that I can show off. I know I have to show and give more, I’m working to do that.”

On Malmo: “In the first leg Malmö played a good game, they have strong players and won the championship.”

This was all Adrien Rabiot stated this afternoon, Below are the thoughts of Massmiliano Allegri:

Team news: “Perin, Rugani, Alex Sandro and Rabiot will play tomorrow. Then tomorrow morning I’ll evaluate the others. I hope to give minutes to De Sciglio, Kulusevski should be available from next Monday. Soulé cannot play because he is not on the B list. De Winter and Miretti will be there. There is a possibility that Arthur will play.”

Favourites for UCL? “Favourites for this year’s Champions League? Liverpool, Bayern, Manchester City, Real, PSG.”

Importance of the game? “Winning is important, because when you win games you are more satisfied and you work with more serenity, The important thing is to approach the game well, to enjoy it, play it and win. We’re behind in the championship and the four teams in front of us are travelling very fast. We must continue to win, step by step, then we’ll see. We have to create the conditions to do better than in the last two years in the UCL. We have to get there in good shape, we’ll see who we get on Monday. First or second? It’s still an open question, but we also need luck.”
