"Making records is very hard, it takes energy and there is also Europe to concentrate on", said Allegri, who rested key players including Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final decider against Ajax in Turin.

Sergio Busquets also misses out, while Luis Suarez and Gerard Pique are suspended.

Now for Huesca! 4-3-3 is the formation of choice for the basement boys!

Subs not used: Semedo, Coutinho, Arthur, Cillessen, Lenglet, Alba, Ruiz.

Ousmane Dembélé returns to the side after injury, whilst it's a debut for Jean-Clair Todibo at centre back. Vidal was probably the most regular of starters after Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in the XI that was fielded against Huesca away. Join me for all the build up, team news and yes the goals as they go in from the Estadio El Alcoraz.

Discussing United's task at hand, Shaw told MUTV: "You look back and look to PSG game, that was even worse for me".

While Juve have been made to wait to extend their domestic coronation to 35 titles, the prize the club really craves is the Champions League.


The Brazilian worldwide was a really busy player in the middle of the pitch, completing 64 passes at a successful rate of 86.5%, winning five of the attempted nine duels and dribbling past two players whilst in possession of the ball. It was a clever pass threaded through the Huesca defence for Dembele.

In their debut La Liga campaign, Huesca are now bottom of the table, where they've been for much of the season. From David Ferreiro's cross Moi Gomez fired just over just before half time.

Huesca were unsafe and when Ter Stegen had to charge out of his goal to close down Enrique Gallego he clashed with the forward and there were timid claims for a penalty.

"We'd played Wednesday [against United] and we have the second leg on Tuesday".

"We must make an effort to focus on the three points because we need them".

When the ball dropped to the 19-year-old Colombia worldwide in the penalty area he might have made an immediate impact but the giant frame of Umtiti blocked his route to goal and the danger was cleared.

A much-changed Barcelona were held to a 0-0 draw by Huesca on Saturday as they moved 12 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid at the top of LaLiga. "It's normal that now we have to reach a Champions [League] semi-final, which is another competition in which Juventus is playing against a great team".
