Man City veteran Vieira expects Juventus battle

Manchester City midfielder Patrick Vieira expects a battle against Europa League opponents Juventus tonight.

The French midfielder spent one season in Turin and won the Scudetto, which was then revoked in the Calciopoli scandal.

"In the last few years the team has tried to get back to the top and, even if it's not the best version of all time, Juventus are always Juventus," he said in a Press conference.

"The Juve side I was a part of was one of the strongest teams I ever played in and my year in Turin was a very positive experience.

"I don't know how far the current set-up is from being like the Juve of 2005-06, but certainly to have a side like that takes time."
