Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has played down talk of winning the Champions League this season.

There are big expectations at Juve following their summer market campaign.

“We know we’ve earned the right to allow ourselves to dream, but we mustn’t delude anyone,” said Agnelli.

“We’ll have a look at the draw and try to get through the group stages. Then we’ll take things on a game by game basis, aware that there are many strong sides in Europe.

“If we think about one of these, Real Madrid, who have not won the Champions League since 2002, we can fully understand how difficult it is to achieve this target.

“But getting the season off on the right foot against Lazio was important. It’s a result that pleases us, because we know it will be a difficult year.”
