Massimiliano Allegri comments on Juventus’ performance in the Champions League against PSG.

A missed opportunity. Per Massimiliano Allegri the lost tie (because he sees the glass as half full and doesn’t call it defeat) is an opportunity that the Juventus missed in the second half, when the Paris Sanit-Germain he left her yards, initiative, and that dash of hope that might have straightened out the game due to the broken headset. “We had to make the most of McKennie (his 2-1 goal, ed) who is a striker with a few more crosses – the words of the Mediaset coach -. The boys tonight had a great spirit, even risking something, but the PSG players have a speed of execution and a crazy technique”.

Whee… you can read it in his eyes. Allegri would have signed had he been told he would return from Paris with regret for having touched the deed. Messi-Neymar-Mbappé.,. those three would make anyone’s wrists tremble. However, he somehow managed to disarm them, some turned off at a distance, convinced that there was no need to worry too much because the match was in hand.

“When you play against these teams, the biggest difficulty is when you don’t have the ball. In the first half we were very shy, better in the second half. Against Salernitana it will be more difficult to play, for example because there won’t be less space.”

Heavy absences, you have to make the best of it. The Juventus coach mentions the absence (pogba, From Mariathe same Church) to clarify once again that without these calibers in the team everything becomes more difficult. It would also be for PSG if it lost its stars. But he doesn’t look for an alibi and goes deep into reflection: “The two goals scored despite being the result of extremely classy moves by Neymar and Messi could have been avoided with more attention.”

why did he take off milik It’s inserted Locatelli in your place? There is no regret in Allegri’s words, behind the replacement of the Pole (who had touched the goal in the first half) there was a precise reason: “He was tired and at that moment we couldn’t leave. They had the ball back in their hands and I preferred to put one in midfield to have quality, geometry, more dribbling. cross, in the pocket, on the counterattack.”

Milik retained by Donnarumma.  The PSG goalkeeper blocked again, this time it happened in the Champions League with Juventus.

walls AND Vlahovic, the coach’s judgment shows both sides of the coin. The brightest, where the Argentine’s face is: “Players of a certain level can be seen immediately, how they stop the ball, how they think about the game”. The slightly opaque, with the Serbian left in the shadow cone. “He played a good game, so we can’t change our opinions after every game.”

The gloss is dedicated to the championship, not to Benfica. Allegri throws the pebble into the pond and, at the cost of seeming exaggerated, gets up: “Now we have to think about beating Salernitana, because we can’t lose other heavy points.”
