Pogba targets Malmo scalp

Paul Pogba feels nothing other than three points will do for Juventus in their make-or-break UEFA Champions League trip to Malmo.
Italian champions Juve visit Sweden on Wednesday in third place in Group A after their dramatic 3-2 win over Olympiacos last time out.
That victory put Massimiliano Allegri’s side level on points with the Greek team, who travel to pool leaders Atletico Madrid this week, and kept their hopes of reaching the last 16 alive.
Juve have been typically dominant in Serie A this season, having dropped just five points from their 12 games so far, but have again found it tough to take that form into continental competition.
However, Pogba, who scored the winning goal in the come-from-behind success over Olympiacos, believes the attitude Juve showed to battle back from 2-1 down against Michel’s side will stand them in good stead for their crucial game at Swedbank Stadion.
“We have no alternative, we must return from Sweden with three points,” the Frenchman told Gazetta dello Sport after scoring twice to inspire Saturday’s 3-0 win at Lazio.
“We know in the Champions League we struggle often – there is something lacking. But against Olympiacos I saw an important spirit.
“We have a good team, we can go pretty far [in the tournament], but we always need [the] concentration and continuity shown in Rome [against Lazio].
“I hope to score again – as long as it proves useful to [getting] the three points, the rest does not interest me.”
