Allegri: It's always hard-fought vs Fiorentina


Massimiliano Allegri of Juventus during a training session at JTC on April 4, 2024 in Turin, Italy. 

On the eve of Juventus-Fiorentina, scheduled for Sunday, 7 April at 20:45 CEST at the Allianz Stadium, Coach Massimiliano Allegri previewed the weekend's match in his usual pre-match press conference.


"The whole match was important and not just the second half, we returned to winning ways, but it was a different competition compared to the championship. Now we have to make up for it in Serie A, consolidate our position and maintain our concentration. The next match is always more complicated than the previous one, there are 50 days left of the season and we need to have great enthusiasm and desire to achieve the objectives we have set ourselves.


"Boys grow by playing. Regardless of this last period where we dropped points along the way, it doesn't mean that the boys haven't grown. The team has always trained well, but as often happens, victories help and give confidence. Now we have eight league games left, we need to earn the points needed to achieve the Champions League objective. The positive result makes you see everything differently. Tomorrow we will be a good test of character.


"Tomorrow we will face a team that played a good game against Atalanta and plays very well, so we know the difficulties of this match. I fear that Fiorentina is an unscrupulous team that plays and attacks a lot. And then those against the Tuscans are always hard-fought matches. Football always gives you the chance to go at it again, tomorrow we have another opportunity to consolidate our position.


"My only thought is to achieve the objectives together with the team and finish the season in the best way possible. We have to fight, we have to struggle. We must have the conviction and the clear idea that we have eight games in the league to achieve this. We know that from here to the end of the campaign there will be difficulties, but one way or another we have to get there.


"We have good players who get better the more they play. And next year with the Champions League there would be at least eight international level matches which can help the kids grow even more. There are players who need time, to put in matches with Juventus and international matches. Vlahovic? He also had some physical problems during the season, it can happen that the forwards don't score goals for a period and then find the net again, but up front we have many options like Chiesa, Kean, Yildiz. Milik, who will be the only absence tomorrow, should be back with us in 15/20 days. I haven't decided on the lineup yet, I'll do it tomorrow morning."
