"Conte said Juventus will show respect instead of fear to Benfica in the crucial match."
Rome, May 1 - Juventus head coach Antonio Conte promised his side will attack Benfica in the second leg of their Europa League semifinal.

The Serie A giants, who lost 1-2 at Benfica in the first leg, have no other option but to attack the Portuguese side Thursday night, reports Xinhua.

We have to be very good going forward, and have to be even better at not allowing Benfica to play what is essentially a counter-attacking game, Conte said Wednesday.

We have to interpret the game well, considering that we lost the first match 1-2. We know what we have to do, he said.

Conte said Juventus will show respect instead of fear to Benfica in the crucial match.

We have great enthusiasm and great respect for Benfica, but fear is not a word of our vocabulary. Neither do I want anyone to say things of this sort, he said.
