Massimiliano Allegri asks for patience ahead of Fiorentina game


Coach Massimiliano Allegri says Juventus will be patient and wait for the right moment to strike when they take on Fiorentina in the Italian Cup.

Vincenzo Montella's men produced a brilliant display in the first leg to battle their way past Juventus 2-1 away from home but Allegri believes his side is capable of turning things around and lift a trophy they last lifted 20 years ago.

"We have to try and overcome the negative result from the first leg," Allegri said on Monday.

"It will not be easy, they are favourites [to make it through], they are enjoying a positive spell, playing nice football and achieving important results.

"So we have to be intelligent, aware that we will face a technical squad and that we cannot expect to overcome the deficit in the first thirty minutes of the game.

"It will be a long game so we will have to be careful, doing our best to stay in the game throughout the full 100 minutes.

"We need to win with a two-goal advantage, it's not easy. For them, just like for us, it is a very important game because the Italian Cup is an important objective to achieve.

"We know that we are capable of scoring two goals but we will not rush things out because we can score two in the last ten minutes of the game.

"[Claudio] Marchisio is fit, he's back in the group but is still training individually.

"But he is in the squad [to face Fiorentina]. I will decide later on today whether he will start the game or not. As for [Andrea] Pirlo, he will be back in the group on Wednesday.

"We will slowly assess his fitness level."
