Allegri: Loss a wake-up call for Juve

Share

Roma have collected only one point from their last two Serie A home matches: the last time they remained winless in three consecutive league games on home soil was in March 2015.

"We have the chance to win the Scudetto on our own terms tomorrow".

Napoli, which earlier beat Torino 5-0 away, is one point further behind in third and also still has a mathematical chance of winning the title. "We need to be focused on our objective and not let anything obscure our view." - said Spalletti. A Leandro Paredes corner found the head of Kostas Manolas was denied by an expert Gianluigi Buffon save, only for the Juve goalkeeper to instantly deny De Rossi with another miracle save from close range.

Mario Lemina had given them the lead at the Olimpico, but Daniele De Rossi, Stephan El Shaarawy and Radja Nainggolan completed the comeback.

Juventus failed to get the point they needed to win Serie A for the sixth time in a row despite taking a first-half lead against the second-placed side.

"It will do us good because we have to pick ourselves up again for Wednesday and then the game against Crotone", said Allegri, whose side meet Lazio in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri made a few of changes with the likes of Paulo Dybala, Giorgio Chiellini, Dani Alves and Andrea Barzagli rested following the Champions League semi-final win over Monaco.

You just have to remember we were up against the second team in the competition.

De Rossi was first to the loose ball, stabbing it goalwards, which Buffon parried but the Roma midfielder remained alert to squeeze the rebound inside the far post.

Pouillard said he came to this conclusion by cross-referencing voting from the 2015 regional elections and the presidential vote. Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon hailed via social media Macron's "decisive victory over the hard right".

"There were a thousand difficulties", De Rossi said.

Nainggolan caught Juventus napping just before half time when he lifted the flawless through-ball into the box for Mohamed Salah, but the winger could only head straight at Buffon despite being left unmarked in the area.

Sassuolo doubled their advantage five minutes into the second half when Iemmello knocked in a cross from Pol Lirola, before Inter substitute Eder pulled one back with a deflected drive.

As well as being determined to stay alive in the race for Scudetto, Roma are keen to cling on to a Champions League place, with Juve already looking forward to their final appearance in June.

Crotone continued their bid for a great escape by beating Udinese 1-0 with a goal by Marcus Rohden while Empoli lost 3-2 at Cagliari.

Mattia Destro scored twice as Bologna beat bottom club Pescara 3-1 while Roberto Inglese cancelled out Fabio Quagliarella's opener as Sampdoria drew 1-1 with Chievo.

Nainggolan in particular caught the eye of the scouts by scoring an excellent goal that took the game away from Juventus.
