Allegri: Beating Lazio Could Be Last Step To Winning Scudetto

According to Massimiliano Allegri, securing victory over Lazio on Wednesday could be the final step in Juventus’ quest to retain the scudetto.

Juventus secured a nine point leaf at the top of the table after thrashing Palermo 4-0, with Inter beating Napoli 2-0.

Allegri’s side need, at most, seven points in order to be crowned champions for a fifth straight season, and their coach is confident that overcoming Lazio will play a crucial role.

“The only numbers that interest me relate to mathematics – we need seven points, hopefully fewer after tonight, although it is unlikely that Napoli will not beat Bologna,” said Allegri.

“We must be careful against Lazio. The three points would make a nice leap forward, probably the final one, to the fifth title. A fifth successive Scudetto would represent an extraordinary achievement.

“They are fighting for the Europa League and are a dangerous opponent, not to mention that we lack [Alvaro] Morata to a suspension. We’re facing a Lazio side who come into the game following consecutive victories without conceding.

“We’ve got a decent advantage over Napoli, but nothing’s guaranteed until the mathematics state otherwise.

“Everyone’s praising us, but we still haven’t won anything as it stands.”
