Watch: Allegri wary of Lukaku as Juventus face Chelsea

Juventus coach Max Allegri is hoping Romelu Lukaku won’t make Chelsea’s line-up for Tuesday night’s Champions League clash.

Juve go to Chelsea with the group leadership up for grabs as the Bianconeri are currently topping the standings with 12 points, three ahead of the European champions.

“Tomorrow, we play for first place against the Premier League leaders and the Champions League winners,” Allegri said at a press conference.

“Without Lukaku, they have different characteristics differently. They’ll have fewer reference points and do more counterattacks.

“Lukaku is a reference point. They gain speed without him and defend differently.”

The Juventus coach also gave little away on who will lead his forward line at Stamford Bridge.

“Moise Kean or Alvaro Morata will start, maybe they will play 45 minutes each. Morata played well against Lazio, same as Kean when he was introduced,” Allegri said.

“We need to improve the finishing, we create important chances, but we often have the last pass wrong.

“We need serenity and do not rush to score goals. We netted two against Lazio on Saturday, but we could have scored more. They are the preconditions for creating actions, that’s where we need to improve.”
