Villarreal star Alberto Moreno has sent a warning to Juventus ahead of tonight’s Champions League clash.
Villarreal have been in fine form of late, losing just one of their last 10 La Liga outings, and they face a Juventus side currently fourth, but on course for fifth due to games in hand below.
And so this is not the clear-cut clash it might have appeared in recent years.
It’s for that reason Villarreal star Moreno, who has been in fine form this season, playing in a higher role than he was previously used to, has plenty of confidence heading into the two-legged tie.
“I hope for a good game. We are going out to win,” he said in the pre-match press conference.
“We will have to suffer in moments, but this team knows how to do it. We know that it’s a big team, but we have already played big rivals.
“They are favourites, but we have a lot to say.”
Villarreal secured passage through to this stage following a big win over Atalanta in their final group stage clash.
Meanwhile, Juventus topped a group that included reigning Champions League champions Chelsea.
