Updated: Dec 30, 2018

Chiellini delighted to see Massimiliano Allegri's men achieve their first objective of 2018-19.

Giorgio Chiellini expressed his delight after Juventus booked their spot in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday.

Mario Mandzukic's 59th minute strike helped the Serie A Champions seal a 1-0 win over Valencia in Turin as they achieved their “first goal of the season”.

"The first goal of the season has been reached," he said in quotes published on Juventus' website.

"We knew that it would be a difficult game because Valencia are a dangerous team in the spaces.

"In the first half we could do better, we got too enthusiastic, then we did well in the second [half] - the result is certainly deserved."

The Italian added: "Now we turn the page and start thinking about the Champions [League] in February.

"We have to concentrate on the championship because we have a good month ahead of us."
