Massimiliano Allegri satisfied with draw, silent on penalty decision


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says his players should have been more clinical in front of goal.

The Bianconeri's goalless draw away at Fiorentina means that they keep the lead at the top of the Serie A but could see their advantage cut down to one point if Roma beat Sassuolo this afternoon.

"For sure it was a very difficult game," Allegri said.

"It was a hard-fought game and creating goal opportunities was not easy. We created two-three important episodes but failed to take advantage, missing the final pass.

"We knew Fiorentina were tough, it was a game with many fouls, a game which could have been decided by a single episode.

"Fiorentina pressed us a lot in the first half, they ran a lot, in fact we controlled the game in the second half.

"But winning all games is not easy, that's what we try to do of course, but winning here in Firenze against this Fiorentina team is not easy.

"We now have a do-or-die game coming up on Tuesday, we can win the group if we win with a two-goal difference so this is what we will be focusing on."

Juventus were denied what looked to be a clear penalty in the dying minutes of the game but the Italian says the referee enjoyed a good game.

"I think the referee did well," Allegri said.

"It's easy to analyse situations after the game in front of the TV but out there it's always difficult.

"Also it's useless to talk about the referee, I think what we had to do is to play well, especially with the final pass."
