Juventus have learnt our lesson; says


Tevez: Juventus have learnt our lesson
The striker is convinced the Bianconeri will not tumble out of the Champions League at the first hurdle for the second season running
Carlos Tevez has insisted that Juventus have learnt their Champions League lesson after easing past Malmo with a 2-0 win on Tuesday.
The Bianconeri struggled in Europe last season but with new coach Massimiliano Allegri having replaced Antonio Conte in the hotseat, they started their campaign on the continent  in comfortable fashion thanks to a double from the former Manchester City forward.
The Argentine, who had not scored in the Champions League since 2008-09, dismissed suggestions he had become weighed down by his European drought, preferring instead to focus on the goals of the team as a whole.
"My lack of Champions League goals wasn't a problem really," he told Sky Sport. "The most important thing for me is the victory.
"It will be a difficult group, we learned the lesson of last year. I'll try to improve my level of goalscoring during the season.
"I am getting into deeper positions, but that is also a problem as I cannot reach the goal. I need to improve on that." Juventus' two-goal win in Turin sent them top of Group A on goal difference ahead of Olympiakos, who pulled off a surprise by beating last season's finalists Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.
“We knew it would be a difficult group. Some journalists like to think it’s easy, but we know from last year that nothing is easy," Tevez added, referring to Juve's group stage exit behind Real Madrid and Galatasaray in 2013-14.
