Massimiliano Allegri: We desperately need to get our second home win


Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says it's time for his team to improve their position in the table.

The Bianconeri suffered a very disappointing start to their Serie A campaign and will be eager to register their second home victory of the season when they host Atalanta at home on Sunday.

"We have some very difficult, important matches coming up," Allegri said on Saturday.

"We desperately need to get our second home win, given that we've only beaten Bologna at home so far. Then we need to try and follow it up with other results.

"We should have more points and the president [Andrea Agnelli] is absolutely right. Regardless of the changes there have been, Juventus can't be 14th.

"We have some players who could do with a rest and when they rest we get them to work. One of those players is [Juan] Cuadrado.

"He definitely won't start tomorrow but he's available. Buffon will play. As for the others, I still need to look at a few things but what matters is they're fit.

"At the moment the only players we're missing are Lichtsteiner and Caceres but otherwise they're all available for selection.

"Tomorrow we'll play with Sturaro or Padoin at right-back – one of the two. We could operate in the same way in terms of system, perhaps with Pereyra in place of Cuadrado."
