Massimiliano Allegri praises players after victory over Real Madrid


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was full of praise for his players after last night's 2-1 home win over Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Carlo Ancelotti's men could only deploy their style of game in the second part of the first half as Juventus produced a superb performance in front of their own supporters.

The win over the Spanish giants confirms that the Bianconeri have improved in all areas of the pitch when compared with last season's squad.

And Allegri is already looking forward to next week's return game in Spain.

"I'm very happy of the performance of the lads, [the win] is the perfect reward for them," Allegri told Sky Sport Italy.

"It was a great game, giving little or nothing away to a very technical side [like Real Madrid]. We could have been more quick in developing our moves in the first half but at this stage I can only show gratitude to the players.

"It's a shame [that we didn't score the third goal], [Fernando] Llorente's last ball could have been dealt with better. But we would have signed before the game to reach the Madrid game with an advantage.

"I [particularly liked] the maturity with which we approached the games in this competition. We started in a way and then we adopted changes.

"Such games have to be approached with maturity and serenity, pressing high up the pitch."
