Champions League Juventus build-up intensifies in Vinovo for Sevilla, Training, September 28, 2015

Preparations for Wednesday’s Champions League fixture against Sevilla step  up a gear at Juventus Center, with Stephan Lichtsteiner returning to the group

The Bianconeri returned to Vinovo this afternoon to continue their build-up towards Wednesday night’s Champions League Group D clash against Sevilla at Juventus Stadium.

While yesterday’s training was split between two groups, Massimiliano Allegri reunited his troops for an intense workout in which preparations were ratcheted up for the visit of the reigning Europa League champions.

Rejoining his team-mates for the full session, which focused on technique and specific tactical movements to be deployed against the Spaniards, was Stephan Lichtsteiner, who has made a full recovery after suffering breathing difficulties during last Wednesday’s Serie A home meeting with Frosinone.

Tomorrow will see the Bianconeri apply the finishing touches to their preparations when they assemble at Juventus Center at 15.15 CEST, with the first 15 minutes of their session open to the media.

This will be followed by Allegri and Gigi Buffon’s meeting with the press, to be held from 19.20 onwards at Juventus Stadium, while Unai Emery and a Sevilla player are due to speak to journalists just over an hour earlier, at 18.15.

Following their news conference, the Andalusians will then sample the Juventus Stadium surface during their final session before Wednesday’s action.

Both press briefings will be covered live on the club’s official English Twitter account, @juventusfcen.
