All eyes on Olympiakos, says Roberto Pereyra

Juventus midfielder Roberto Pereyra said the Italian champions` focus has already turned to their Champions League clash away to Olympiakos in the wake of a 1-1 draw with Sassuolo.

Juve`s 13-match unbeaten run came to an end in Reggio-Emilia on Saturday as the league strugglers battled for a share of the points.

Juventus now hold a one-point lead over title challengers Roma at the top of Serie A after the Giallorossi`s 3-0 win over Chievo.

But Argentinian Pereyra, who is on loan at Juve from Udinese, told juventus.com: "It was a difficult game for us but we now need to turn our attention to an important encounter in Athens.

"We tailed off in the second-half tonight, yet still kept plugging away and trying to play our game.

"We had chances to score and unfortunately we weren`t able to."

Juve travel to Athens on the back of a 1-0 Champions League defeat away to Atletico Madrid, having claimed a 2-0 win over Malmo in their Group A opener. 

Massimiliano Allegri`s side sit second in the group although all four teams have so far collected three points from two games so far.
