Massimiliano Allegri plays down treble talk ahead of Sampdoria game


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says it's too early to talk about the treble as his side gets ready to face Sampdoria on Saturday.

The Bianconeri need one point to be crowned champions and the Italian insists that the focus is on winning the title so as to then focus on the Champions League tie against Real Madrid.

"Tomorrow's game is the first match point we have to win the title," Allegri said on Friday.

"On Wednesday it wasn't just down to us, Lazio had to lose as well. That didn't happen so tomorrow we have to make sure to win the game or at least draw.

"Also we lost our last two away games against Parma and Torino so tomorrow we have to win the title so as to then focus entirely on the Champions League semi-final [against Real Madrid].

"The players are well-rested [after the Fiorentina game] so as always, the best possible line-up will start against Sampdoria. It will not be an easy game, they didn't register positive results lately but at home they are always dangerous.

"[The treble?] Let's take it slowly, we first have to win the title then we'll see if we can get to the final of the Champions League.

"It's mighty difficult, our fans should be happy of what we achieved so far this season. We are enjoying a positive season which could become very positive but we have to take it one step at a time."
