Massimiliano Allegri: This is by no means an all-or-nothing match


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says his team will still be title contenders even if they fail to beat Internazionale on Sunday evening.

The Bianconeri endured a very disappointing start to the new campaign but the Italian is confident his team can bounce back with a positive performance at the Stadio San Siro.

"This is by no means an all-or-nothing match," Allegri told reporters.

"We do need to be realistic at the moment. We have to aim to get to March and be in with a shout for the Scudetto but tomorrow's game is not going to decide who wins the title.

"It's a fantastic one to be involved in - it's the Derby d'Italia. We'll be playing in front of 80,000 people plus everyone else watching on TV around the globe.

"There's plenty of incentive for us to do well. We must make sure we perform strongly and play the right way. We can't go to Milan and not be on our game.

"Tomorrow, for the first time this season, I'll have more or less everyone available for selection. However, they don't all have the same level of fitness as some have played more than others.

"We need to look at everyone's condition, especially our players returning from overseas duty and those who had been sidelined.

"We have some international players who haven't recovered properly yet and there are some injured players I need to assess today, although they've all been able to work with the squad."
