Angel Di Maria confirms that Juventus will try to “win both the Europa League and the Coppa Italia”. The Argentine international has scored the last four goals for Juve in the Europa League, while he managed a hat-trick against Nantes in the play-offs and a headed goal last night from Filip Kostic’s cross. This gives the Bianconeri a slim lead ahead of the second leg of the round of 16, which will be played in Germany next Thursday.
“The important thing was to work hard and win the game. I am happy to have helped the team with a goal and I hope to continue doing so for the rest of the season. We will do our best to win the Europa League, it is one of our goals together with the Coppa Italia, and we will try to win both. I am very happy here, I can really feel the affection of the fans now, which was a bit more difficult for me at the beginning,” Di Maria told Sky Sport Italia.
