Massimiliano Allegri on Roma, gives update on Andrea Pirlo's injury


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says it's too early to say who can win the Italian Serie A.

The Bianconeri host Rudi Garcia's Roma in tomorrow's big game and midfielder Andrea Pirlo will probably be on the bench for the reigning Italian champions.

"It's too early to say it's a two-horse race," Allegri said on Saturday.

"If you draw two games and another team wins both games, that's four points you lose. The quality of the other teams is high, like Internazionale; I will not mention the same teams again or I would be boring.

"I spoke with Andrea yesterday, we will assess his injury today.

"He's been out for one and a half months, what is important is to have him back in the best possible physical conditions.

"I will therefore decide today and tomorrow, he's a key player for us.

"Caceres and Morata are fit and available.

"I have to decide between Asamoah and Evra. One played three games so far, the other two, it could be Asamoah's turn tomorrow since Evra played three back-to-back matches."
