On the eve of Genoa-Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri has spoken to ANSA about the paramount importance of Juve’s upcoming four games.
“These next 20 days will be pivotal towards the course of the season: the upcoming four games will give us a great chance to win the league.”
Allegri demanded maximum concentration on the imminent league fixtures before the team can prepare for the Supercoppa against Milan:
“We will be up against tough opponents: Genoa, Atalanta (now on five consecutive victories), Torino in the derby and Roma. We must concentrate only on the league for the next 20 days: After playing Roma we will think about the Supercoppa in Doha.”
The Juve boss then talked about Genoa, who are yet to lose a game at Marassi this season, as a dangerous opponent:
“It will be a complicated game, it wont end until the 95th minute. On their home turf, the rossoblù always put up a fierce struggle and we’ll have to put ourselves on their same level.”
Benatia and Higuain are back in the squad list, although Allegri is unclear about whether the Argentinian will start. Allegri added that 16-year-old Moise Kean, who made his debut in the Champions League earlier this week, will not be starting. Dybala, on the other hand, will still be absent.
