Ahead of Juventus upcoming match against Atalanta, Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri, also commenting upon Champions League latest fiasco suffered by the hands of Chelsea, stated:
"Tomorrow will be a match between two teams fighting right now for fourth place. We must congratulate Atalanta for the work they have been doing in recent years. They are also doing well in the Champions League, where we hope all the Italians will qualify. Playing against them is always complicated, they are a physical team and we have to be attentive.
Atalanta is a team that scores a lot but also concedes, we will have to be good at playing a good match both from an offensive and defensive point of view. Gian Piero Gasperini's teams play man-to-man across the field, so it is important that the centre forward becomes the director of the team. A great challenge awaits us tomorrow, then we will have to also face the subsequent matches well.
We lost a game in London, and we're sorry, because we are Juventus and losing like this is not good. The match up to the 55th minute was balanced and we had a good first half, then after the second goal we lost our way, and this must not happen. After an important match like the one against Lazio, the team arrived in London and after a good first-half, we broke up. But we won the match we needed to win, the one in Turin against the European champions".
