Allegri Challenges Juventus To Overtake Napoli

share on:

Juventus manager, Massimiliano Allegri has challenged his men to reach Napoli and overtake them.

Juventus recorded a 1-0 win over Roma, with Paulo Dybala getting his eight goal in 10 games and recording 11th straight victory.

And with Napoli recording a 4-2 win over Sampdoria, Juventus are two points behind the club.

“The club evaluated the situation, changed a lot of players over the summer and brought in youngsters, so we needed patience,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“In the same way, we need balance during this run of 11 consecutive wins.

“Napoli are doing exceptionally well, so we must try to do even better to catch and leapfrog them.”

It looked as though Juve’s stunning sequence would come to an end as Roma proved a stubborn opponent until Pogba and Dybala combined to great effect.

“It was a difficult game because Roma closed us down,” Allegri said.

“We did well in the opening 20 minutes, but Dybala and Mario Mandzukic weren’t finishing off the service. Dybala kept going too wide on the right in the first half and wasn’t finding the spaces.

“Of course at the end he did score an extraordinary goal. It’s not easy to get 11 consecutive victories in Serie A, especially after we used up a lot of energy against Lazio in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

“The important thing is to maintain this physical and psychological condition.”
