Max Allegri: Juventus “can’t ignore the maths”


Max Allegri has set Juventus a points target for the remainder of the season.

The boss wants the Bianconeri to claim at least 93 points before the Scudetto can be declared safe.

Juve took another step towards a sixth league crown in a row by defeating Sampdoria 1-0 on Sunday. Juan Cuadrado’s seventh-minute strike proved enough to claim three points.

Juventus are eight points ahead of second-placed AS Roma and 10 in front of Napoli.

Allegri says the title is not yet secure and that his team cannot ignore the numbers.

“The first half was one of our best performances of the season, but now we face Napoli away, Roma away, Atalanta away and the Turin Derby,” he said.

“To win the title, we need to get through those four games, the most difficult matches of the season.

“We won today, an important victory, but we need to continue this form because Roma and Napoli still have the chance to get 92 points.

“We can’t ignore the maths.

“So our target is to reach 93 points, we still need to win a lot of matches.”

Juventus are also into the last eight in the Champions League, where they will face FC Barcelona in a rematch of the 2015 final.
