Massimiliano Allegri on the Cagliari game and injured players


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says his side should expect a tough away game when they face Cagliari tonight.

The Bianconeri will be under pressure to take all three points after last week's draw against Sampdoria as the Italian rubbishes reports that his squad is suffering from fatigue.

"I expect a tough [Cagliari] side, a team that creates a lot," Allegri told reporters on Wednesday.

"But we have to get back on winning terms with a good performance, just like the one against Sampdoria where however we failed to win.

"I don't agree we are tired. On Sunday Juventus produced one of their best performance is respect to the physical aspect of the game."

Asked who will start in defence and midfield, Allegri said: "In central defence we only have two players available, [Angelo] Ogbonna and [Giorgio] Chiellini and they will start.

In midfield I have 5-6 players for four roles and same goes for the offensive department. The only problems I have are at the back with [Leonardo] Bonucci suspended and [Martin] Caceres still out. I hope to have him back after the Cagliari game.

"[Andrea] Barzagli is recovering and [Kwadwo] Asamoah underwent surgery and will be out for a long time, just like Romulo."

A number of Juventus players will miss the Italian Super Cup against Napoli if booked but the Italian is only concerned on tonight's game.

"Tomorrow [tonight] we will start with the best possible line-up because the most important game is the next one.

"After the game we will see who was booked and decide ahead of the [Italian Super Cup] game in Doha."
