Rodrigo Bentancur shrugs off criticism of Juventus ahead of Sunday’s game with Brescia. “The team is in very good shape and on the right track.”

The Bianconeri are increasingly coming under fire for disappointing results and above all performances, with a 2-1 defeat at Hellas Verona in Serie A and 1-1 draw with Milan in the Coppa Italia.

“The team is in very good shape, as you can see by the fact we are top of the Serie A table, reached the Champions League Round of 16 and the Coppa Italia semi-final,” Bentancur told Sky Sport Italia.

“We need to improve in terms of our performances, but are on the right track. We’re working to get stronger.”

Only a controversial last-gasp Cristiano Ronaldo penalty allowed them to grab a 1-1 draw away to Milan in the Coppa Italia last night.

“It was a very tough game, but I think we did well. Now we are concentrated on getting a good result in the second leg on our home turf.

“Before that, we’ve got Brescia this weekend and want a good performance. At Juve, you must always give something more, that’s what I was told the first day I arrived and the most important element that has made this team win so much over the years.”
