Massimiliano Allegri insists he is not worried by Juventus' poor record in major European finals ahead of facing Real Madrid in a Champions League showdown in Cardiff on Saturday.
Juve have won only two of their eight final appearances in the premier continental showpiece, losing their last four - most recently against Barcelona in 2015.
But Allegri feels not enough has been made of the achievement in reaching the final and does not want to worry about such negative thoughts.
"It's an important match and we must simply do what we've produced all season long," he told a news conference. "Negativity is infectious. When I took over there was an air of negativity which was frightening and I can sense a touch of that now too when I hear people talking about the finals we've lost.
"Juventus haven't lost six finals - we've been involved in eight. Making the final is incredible.
"There's only one Champions League like there's only one Super Bowl and what matters is being in the right place at the right time. I'm delighted to be in the final and I feel fortunate to be leading a team out in Cardiff on Saturday."
