Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has called on his players to "use the anger" of their Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid in the new season.
The Bianconeri begin their campaign against Lazio in the
"I reflected to see if I still wanted to challenge myself and go forward. I thought this squad could start another important season.
"Juventus have won six Serie A titles in a row, reached the Champions League final twice in three years, won the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa.
"There is bitterness at losing the final, but we must focus on the satisfaction of reaching the final twice in three years, as Juve hadn't been there in quite some time.
"A new season begins, we're all on a level playing field. After the defeat in the Champions League final in Cardiff, we must use that anger to start the new campaign.
"We must be aware of our strengths and aware that it takes hard work day by day. The important thing is to be challenging for the Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Champions League in March."
On the game against Lazio, he added:
"I see the Juve defence much the same as other years [after Leonardo Bonucci's sale to AC Milan], it's strong and will as always be a point of strength for us.
"We have everything in place to play a great game, which is what the event demands. Aside from the opponent, who in recent years always struggled against us, they had difficulty because we always respected them."
