Massimiliano Allegri believes that Juventus’ 1-0 victory over Fiorentina will be a turning point for his side to resume the competition at the top of the table. The victory at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday (7/11) early this morning became the Old Lady’s first three points in the Italian League in the last four matches. In their last two matches, Juventus have lost to Sassuolo and Verona.
“The mentality of the players was really in the game, which can make us smile, but also angry at the points lost in the matches against Sassuolo and Verona, which could be important,” Allegri said after the game, as quoted on the official website of Juventus. .
“It’s just that tonight’s victory injects our morale and encourages us to focus on the next game. It’s a turning point to become a team that competes for the top of the table again,” he added.
Allegri said the aggressiveness of the players is the difference for Juventus in this game. “Tonight we won all the tackles, against Sassuolo none,” he said.
Juve’s victory was sealed in the first minute of added time thanks to the goal of Juan Cuadrado, against Fiorentina who from the 73rd minute were forced to end the match with only ten men due to Nikola Milenkovic’s second yellow card. . Cuadrado hopes he and his teammates can maintain the same attitude and level of focus in the next matches. “I am happy with the performance of the team. It is important for us to always be ready, we have to continue to grow and maintain this attitude in every game,” he said.
Juventus temporarily moved up to eighth place in the table with 18 points, but their momentum had to be temporarily delayed due to the international break for the next two weeks or so. Following the international break, Juventus will travel to the Olimpico against Lazio on November 20. (OL-8)
