Gigi Del Neri was pleased with the performance as Juventus made their Europa League debut.

“The match did count and the victory was important,” he said of the 2-0 away win at Shamrock Rovers.

“We are in good shape physically and will take it one step at a time. I liked the team, we need to get the right mentality and work on our movement.

“Something good was already visible tonight. Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini were a new central defensive pairing and I think they went pretty well.”

The first leg result in Dublin puts Juve in a commanding position ahead of the second meeting in Modena on August 5.

“Winning is important because it gives you a sense of security and confidence,” continued Del Neri.

“We are working to forget last season, but having said that one must always learn from negative situations.”

Amauri bagged a brace at the Tallaght Stadium and looked to be in good shape.

“I am glad that I returned to the scoresheet and am working on this,” said the striker.

“The important thing is to be physically fit and take the chances that come to you.”
