Massimiliano Allegri: I don't see why we won't still be in the top three


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says Napoli took full advantage of defensive mistakes by his side after last night's 2-1 defeat at the Stadio San Paolo.

The Bianconeri's disappointing start to the the Serie A continued as they were second best to a very lively Napoli side on Saturday night.

But Allegri is confident a top-three finish is still possible.

"It was a tight affair and credit must go to Napoli for playing a strong counter-attacking game and for making the most of our defensive mistakes, the goals were fine examples of both," Allegri told reporters.

"In the first 25 minutes or so we were the better side and looked in control but once again the match turned suddenly on a fine bit of play from [Lorenzo] Insigne and [Gonzalo] Higuain.

"Napoli are a well-organised side and when you make mistakes against them you have to expect that they will punish you.

"But that's football, a corner decided the game a few days ago and two misplaced passes in our own half decided the game tonight. We're on a poor run but we mustn't dwell on it, the important thing for us now is to get back to work and start winning football matches.

"Where will we finish? I don't see why we won't still be in the top three or four or indeed challenge for the title. It's up to us to turn things round and get back on the right track."
