Allegri claims qualifying for Champions league after ban is ‘like winning three Scudettos’

Juventus is unlikely to get into the Champions League but if they do so, Allegri believes that it is ‘lik winning three titles’

Winning three Serie A titles is as hard as Juventus getting into the top 4 this season since the club has been deducted 15 points due to financial irregularities.

Will Juventus climb back into the top four?

The Bianconeri has earned 50 points this season, which would have seen them at second place. However, due to Serie a deducting 15 points from them on the basis financial foul play, Juve has now 115 points less which has left them at seventh in the table.

“Perhaps my words have been misrepresented,” Allegri said. “I said that the Champions League chase is an impossible, difficult thing.

“That said, the team at the moment has made 50 points. On the field, we are doing well and we must continue.

“Even among those in front, one will miss out between Inter, Milan, Lazio and Roma. One is left outside, and there is also Atalanta still behind who have the possibility to return.

“There are 42 points at stake, right? Everything is still to be played, so we have to take one step at a time. We can’t look too far ahead, and we have to work for ‘mini’ goals.”

When asked about the enormity of such a task and how hard it is in comparison to Serie A, Allegri said: “Going with minus-15 into the Champions League is not like winning a Scudetto. It would be like winning three.”
