Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini said that Villarreal, his team’s rival on Wednesday in the second leg of the Champions League final, is a team that “has techniques, but is solid above all else.”
Chiellini said in an interview broadcast today on Amazon Prime: “Details make the difference at this level. I’m expecting a tough game. I know his coach well, we faced him while he was in Seville and he has a big sale.” It is a solid, organized team that defends well”.
Chiellini recovered in time and entered the match list, but everything indicates that he will sit on the bench alongside the Argentine Paulo Dybala, who has also finally recovered.
The defender considered that “the errors that are made at this time will have their weight, because when the differences are not clear, one of the small details can achieve the result of the game.”
Chiellini believes that the best way to win and qualify for the quarterfinals is to “present a strong match with concentration, attention and taking advantage of the advantages” that his team possesses.
Regarding the team’s striker Dusan Vlahovic, who scored for Villarreal in the first leg after 30 seconds, he said: “It was a reason to increase the enthusiasm of the fans, players and coaching staff. Mario Mandzukic did not have a strong striker.” , we had Gonzalo Higuain, an exceptional player, but we didn’t have a striker with the characteristics of Doosan”.
It should be noted that the first leg match between the two teams, which was held in the stadium of the Spanish team, ended in a 1-1 draw.
