Allegri admits winning Europa League is always tough

Max Allegri’s Juventus were left frustrated after they drew their Europa League last-16 playoff clash against Nantes

Juventus drew their game against FC Nantes 1-1 in the Europa League last-16 play-offs. But Allegri is adamant that his team will shake it off.

Mount to join La Liga?!

Juventus are still frustrated with their Europa League draw as they prepare to face Spezia. The Bianconeri have been left in mid-table after a 15-point deduction ban left them there.

“We have to continue in what are our mini-goals. It will be a complicated match, it’s a difficult place to go and Spezia are a team that create a lot, like what happened also with Napoli and Atalanta.” Allegri said.

“We need a fair game, played with attention and determination. We set ourselves the goal of climbing more positions in the table. Regardless of what happens outside, we have to work on the points scored in the league.

“The Europa League is not compromised, in Europe it is always difficult to win games. Then football is strange, despite having a piece of the match where we could have done better, we had important chances.”

Allegri also confirmed that his side will be rotated a bit against Spezia, saying: “Those who play a lot are used to it. Tomorrow Chiesa won’t be there because he played two games in four days and he was very tired, normal after 10 months of stop.

“The Europa League is not compromised, in Europe it is always difficult to win games.

“Perin will return and play, the others I will have to evaluate. Surely there will be some changes. The three who play tomorrow are Kean, Perin and Rugani. The others I have to evaluate and decide.”

He was then asked about his recent outbursts in recent games.

“But there’s one thing, you shouldn’t talk about facts. On that, one cannot argue, then I accept that I am poor, my teams suck. But you can’t argue about numbers.” He added.

“I’m sorry when I had the reaction the other night, I have no reaction if I’m criticized because everyone can have their own opinion. But about numbers nothing is debatable.”
