Alex Sandro: ‘Juve always aim to win the Scudetto’

Alex Sandro said Juventus ‘always focus on winning’ the Scudetto and vowed to ‘work to win all’ the remaining games this term.

Juventus crashed out of the Champions League this week and until the Coppa Italia Final against Atalanta in May, their only commitment will be in Serie A.

The Bianconeri prepare to face Cagliari on Sunday and are currently 10 points behind leaders Inter, but they have one game in hand and aim to give the Nerazzurri a real battle for the trophy.

“We will try to do our best and we will work to win all the games,” Alex Sandro told Sky Sport Italia. “It has been our goal since the beginning of the season and our mentality has not changed.

“We always focus on winning the League. There are still many games and we must be good at winning them all, in addition to the Coppa Italia.”

The wing-back conceded that the Old Lady didn’t approach the Champions League match against FC Porto in the right way and admitted the Bianconeri ‘need to improve’.

“We were disappointed with the elimination and the biggest mistake was how we approached the match,” he added.

“Even in the first leg we started badly both in the first and the second half. It’s precisely in those moments when the game seems easy that we need to improve.

“You can concede goals even when it doesn’t seem to be dangerous, and this can lead to defeat. We have to think that every ball is important, and every action can change the game and our season.

“In this sense, we need to improve.”
