Serie A Results: Allegri Provides Explanation for Juventus Defeat

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has some choice observations upon seeing the Serie A results for their recent game. He said that the players were playing “frenetic” and told them not to concede goals the way it happened during the match against Sassuolo.

It was only the second home defeat for the Old Lady against Sassuolo, but the manager took the initiative to right any wrongs before it got out of hand. The Neroverdi were nevertheless playing spectacular, taking all three points, courtesy of a Maxime Lopez goal late in the match.

A Reflection from Allegri

Allegri, in an interview on DAZN, told pundits that he thought the team needed more organization towards the end of the match. He also said that the football game belongs to matches teams cannot lose, especially if it looks like it’s a bit impossible to win it.

Explaining further, the manager said that they need to think about how to handle games. He added that goals on counterattack had no reason to be conceded. While there were multiple chances to score, he stressed that these chances needed clinical execution, or nothing came easy.

Praises for Good Gameplay

While he was critical of his team’s own play, Allegri did point out that the opponents truly outclassed them. He commented on how Sassuolo were the team with the “great technical skills” and how, during the 12 Sports covered match, they managed to play well against every Juventus attack.

It was a game where matches were played in halves, and there was a moment when Juventus thought they could win the game. Weston McKennie scored for Juventus and drew the game level; Allegri thought that the team could potentially win the game during that point.

Thoughts for the Next Game

The coach had some choice words for his players, especially McKennie, the almost-hero who tied the game and almost won it too. He praised the player for his good game and the effort he gave, and he also gave equal praise to Betancur, who he said had the ‘same characteristics’.

He then stressed the idea that Juventus wasn’t a team that conceded goals like they did on the day, and said that it shouldn’t happen again. Thoughts on the next game can be found in 12BET’s sports section, which can be accessed with a 12BET login.
