Massimiliano Allegri on Genoa, rotation and injury problems


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says tomorrow's game away at Genoa should not be taken lightly.

The Bianconeri face Gian Piero Gasperini's side as Serie A leaders but fully aware of the strength of the hosts who won two of their last three games in the league.

"It will be a very difficult game, Genoa only lost once in their last seven games, they only lost the derby," Allegri said on Tuesday.

"They play nice football, they do well in the offensive department and at home they play completely different than how they play away from home.

"A concern is the state of the pitch after the heavy rain which hit Genoa, we need to be focused to deal with this problem.

"As for the starting line-up, I will assess the players today, if I see that one or more players are tired I'm sure the others will be ready to feature.

"Pepe suffered an adductor problem but he'll be back training with the squad in two-three days.

"In respect to rotation, Marchisio missed two of the last three games and Pogba was rested against Palermo. In other games it was Vidal's turn to be rested so in midfield a lot of rotation was done so far.

"Up front Morata played in Greece and Giovinco played one game and featured in other games as well.

"It's in defence where I cannot rotate else I would have to start with one less man at the back."
