After bringing in the likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Miralem Pjanic, Dani Alves and Medhi Benatia, the top priority for Juventus is clearly the Champions League.

Juventus has finished runner-up four times since it last won the trophy 20 years ago, including to Barcelona in 2015.

“Everyone says Juve will win everything — the league, cup and the Champions League. But that hurts us, because we lose perspective,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “We’ve got to play the matches and win them on the pitch.”

Juventus opens its campaign at home against Sevilla on Wednesday in Group H after impressing in its opening three Serie A matches.

Higuain transferred from rival Napoli for 90 million euros ($99 million) after scoring 36 goals last season to break a 66-year-old Serie A record. He scored twice in the opening 10 minutes of a 3-1 win over Sassuolo on Saturday.

“Juventus will definitely be a protagonist until the end,” Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti, a former Juventus coach, told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “If you have a player who scores 30 goals per season that’s really key — it gives you fewer uncertainties.”
