Its because of that 2-0 result against Barca he achieved with a crap Milan side.I guess it originated from there.

I am not hating here. I am pretty sure Conte would have gone to the semis this year if he stayed. They got worst Dortmund since 2009 and Monaco in quarters. This is the easiest draw Allegri ever had in the CL and he did not have the legends in MilanLab gifting him 432543 injuries.

The series of games he had against Barça in the CL that saw him go almost neck and neck with them even though his side was seen as the underdogs. It originated from there.

And at the same time he was the first coach in UCL history, to have his team lose a 2-0 lead from the first leg in the knockout rounds.

And only it took 40 minutes Sad

How can people be judging SEXXXLEGRI? Why are people brushing aside Juve as if they have the least amount to pass to the finals? I think Real Madrid are the weakest ATM, just saying.

@M99, you say Conte would have made it to the semis but I totally disagree. Conte plays anybody just to play his 3-5-2 formation, with ALWAYS playing the Starting XI in Serie A, CL, Coppa Italia, Friendlly Matches, etc. Hell, even Buffon would play CB to cover injuries to fit a 3-5-2. Allegri has developed a tactical flexibility, utilizing 4-3-1-2 / 4-3-3 / 3-5-2 depending on the opposition and his available players, the development and use of bench players and resting key players when needed.

Lastly, Conte always moaned and complained about the quality of his team when he was in the CL and lost a game or when paired up with big teams.

I think Allegri can take Juventus farther than Conte.

Well, you believe that then...... I know how sensitive some Juve fans get if someone has an opinion different from theirs.

Conte took Juve to the quarter finals where they lost to a dominate Bayern team.

Of course he would have beat *bleep* Dortmund and Monaco ffs.

lol madrid being viewed as weakest, we will be the team to beat by obvious if it wasn't a certain player. carlo, i hope u see this.

anyway, if that worst setup is the only way, then that is it, facing any of those team will still be a great match Thumbs up

In recent years, there has always been an underdog (or sometimes two) in the semi-finals of the CL which on paper seems unable to measure up to the other three (two), but somehow at least one underdog reaches the final, and sometimes they even win it (Chelsea (2012), Inter (2010),...:

2014 CL semi-final (both underdogs went to the final):
Bayern: Favorites.
Real Madrid: Underdog.

Atlético: Underdog.
Chelsea: Favorites.

2013 CL semi finals (One underdog went to the final):
Real Madrid: Favorite.
Dortmund: Underdog.

Bayern:Favorite.
Barça: Underdog.

2012 CL semi finals (both underdogs went to the final):
Real Madrid: Favorite.
Bayern: Underdog.

Barça: Favorite.
Chelsea: Underdog.



This year's CL semi-final:
Bayern: Favorite.
Real Madrid: Favorite.
Barça: Favorite.
Juventus: Underdog.

I think Juventus will reach the final this year. (could be wrong though, it's just a guess based on recent years' illogical turn of events).
