It will be a very technical game. We will face a compact team, you have to have the patience to turn them from one side to the other.

Everyone is fine, apart from De Ligt who trained separately. Chiellini trained with the team, he's quite well and available for tomorrow. Danilo's absence weighs on us, but I'm satisfied because we'll have a few more options tomorrow.

Tomorrow is an important game as if it were a final. The result is open and we will have to be calm in the management of the game.

We know the importance and beauty of playing the UCL. When you can play these games there's a totally different energy, but it has to be approached like any other important game.

I was thinking about the idea of playing Bernardeschi at left-back this summer. He has given me the availability and has put his mind to it. We'll continue along these lines.

Arthur is not at his best but he can play from the start. Hopefully, he can continue for a few games.

We re-watched the first leg several times. We had prepared the match differently, then the disadvantage led us to change the way we played. We should have been calmer, let's learn from the mistakes we made.

I think game by game. The club will decide on the future based on results.

Morata is always improving, he is an intelligent and ambitious player. He's trying to find better solutions and he's learning about his opponents.

McKennie is fine. He's got this little problem he's carrying around and we know he can play a few minutes every game.
