Massimiliano Allegri urges the Bianconeri to wrap up the Serie A title with victory over Crotone on Sunday.
MUST-WIN MATCH VS CROTONE
“Winning the Coppa Italia on Wednesday has given us an immense boost ahead of tomorrow’s match.
“It was an extraordinary achievement because to lift the trophy for three years in a row is something that nobody had ever managed before.
“The boys have trained brilliantly in the build-up to this game. I’m sure they’ll play well tomorrow and seal the Scudetto in the process.
“Even if Roma and Napoli win tonight, we won’t be concerned as we know what we have to do: pick up all three points. There’s no two ways about it. Tomorrow we must wrap up the league title once and for all.”
BEWARE THE ROSSOBLU
“All matches are different depending on what stage of the season you play them. Juventus vs Crotone four months ago may not have been like Juventus vs Crotone tomorrow.
“We’re expecting a tough game, firstly because at 15.00 CEST it will be very hot. Secondly, Crotone are in excellent form, having collected 17 points from their last seven fixtures.
“In that time, they’ve conceded very few goals, made a lot of interceptions and, as a result, been very dangerous on the counter-attack.
“From our point of view, we need to win and, in order to do so, we must approach the match with complete composure, making sure do all the basics correctly, whilst maintaining that same hunger we showed in Wednesday’s final against Lazio.”
“Dybala is fit and available for tomorrow. Khedira has rejoined the squad, but won’t play against Crotone. Marchisio features in midfield.
“Buffon is back between the sticks, while Dani Alves, Bonucci, Chiellini and Alex Sandro all line up in defence.”
