Carlo Ancelotti has written off Juventus’ chances of going all the way in this season’s Champions League following the summer departures of Carlos Tevez, Arturo Vidal and Andrea Pirlo.
The Bianconeri reached the final last term, losing 3-1 to Barcelona in Berlin, but have started the current season terribly after losing three of their key men.
“I think it’s going to be really hard for them to reach the final again as they have lost so many good players,” Ancelotti said.
“They signed a number of very good and young talented players who will surely do well, but they need time to understand the system. That’s why I think they won’t reach the final like last year.”
