Massimiliano Allegri delighted with win ahead of international break


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says midfielder Andrea Pirlo will be back after the international break.

The Bianconeri continued their impressive run in the Serie A with a 1-0 win at home against Genoa but the Italian insists there is still a long way to go before celebrating the Scudetto.

"If we win our next two games we will have at least a 14-point advantage with eight games to go," Allegri told Sky Sport Italy.

"But we haven't won the title yet, we will only celebrate after winning it.

"We recovered a very important player in Andrea [Barzagli]. It wasn't nice not having him for four months, with him we can play with either three or four at the back.

"We can also give [Leonardo] Bonucci a rest because he played a lot [this season]. With three competitions having players available allows us to have plenty of options.

"[Andrea] Pirlo will also be back although some more time is needed to see [Paul] Pogba back in action.

"[Stefano] Sturaro is also back so I have enough players to reach our objectives.

"Our focus is on the championship and the Italian Cup, only after we will start thinking of the Monaco tie."
