Juventus take positive first step with Sevilla win

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was pleased that his "growing team" were able to record a 2-0 Group D victory over a Sevilla side who have some "hard work to do".

2015 highlights: Juventus 2-0 Sevilla

Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus coach
We played well both defensively and technically. We are a team who are still growing and we need to understand how to manage the key moments in a match. We played with great intensity for 25 minutes in the first half but we didn't score. In the second half we kept the ball well and we played a clever game. This is a first step for a team that need to discover how to play at the highest level.

Unai Emery, Sevilla coach
It was a fair result. We didn't defend well enough and we can do better in attack, so the result is fair. We will improve through hard work; I really believe that. We've got to look forward. We've still got four games to play and we've got to be optimistic.

Juventus were extremely strong defensively and we couldn't break through but I'm sure we will grow from this experience. They were in the final last season, they are the defending Italian champions so of course we knew they would be tough.
