Massimiliano Allegri eager to get needed point against Sampdoria


Coach Massimiliano Allegri says Juventus will be determined to get the needed point to win the title when they face Sampdoria on Saturday.

The Bianconeri battled past Fiorentina on Wednesday night and with tough games coming up against Real Madrid in the Champions League, they will want to be crowned champions as soon as possible so as to shift their focus on more important objectives.

"It's an important win," Allegri told Sky Sport Italy.

"At this stage only a miracle is needed for us to lose the title, we will try to get the point we need at Genoa [away against Sampdoria].

"The lads were phenomenal this season, winning was mighty important today and this victory allows us to approach the remaining games in the championship with calm.

"But we want to get the point we need as soon as well. Preparing today's game and the derby [against Torino] was not easy especially with players out injured like Asamoah, Barzagli, Caceres and Romulo.

"He [Paul Pogba] will undergo another test tomorrow [on Thursday].

"He is responding well to treatment and next week he will be back in the group. He should be available for the second round game [against Real Madrid] even if he's been out for two months.

"Real Madrid is not easy to play against, they are quality and if you make a mistake you get punished."
