Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah insists the early exit of Juventus from the Champions League has had very minimal effect on the team following their 4-0 thrashing of Sassuolo on Sunday.

The Italian champions crashed out of the prestigious competition following a 1-0 loss at Galatasaray last Wednesday.

The crashing defeat in Istanbul the Bianconeri finish their Group B campaign a point shy of qualification – with Real Madrid and Galatasary progressing.

Antonio Conte’s side however recovered from the midweek disappointment to smash Sassuolo 4-0 to extend their lead in Serie-A.

And Asamoah who was restored to his favourite midfield role in Sunday’s win believes Juventus have put behind their Champions League disappointment as they look to wrap up their third successive Serie-A title.

“The match in Istanbul hasn’t left its mark. Today we played a great game and helped each other throughout, as a great team should,” he said.

“We’re happy with the victory and with staying top of the table. We need to carry on like this, to keep on doing our thing without looking at our challengers’ results.”

Juventus are now six points clear at the top of Serie-A but have played a game more than closest rivals Roma.
