Massimiliano Allegri insists his side needs to continue the positive form in other to finish top four in the Serie A.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has stated that their main objective is to finish in the top four in the Serie A.

Juventus remain fourth in the Serie A and will travel to play Sampdoria tomorrow and will seek to secure their place in the top four.

Speaking ahead of the game against Sampdoria Allegri said they need to stay focus and continue their positive run in the league.

“We’ve reached the decisive moment of the season”, Allegri said. With two months to play, this is the run-in. There’s the international break in a week, but in the meantime, we have an intense week ahead of us.

“Our first objective is to defeat Samp, then the second is to qualify to the quarter finals of the Champions League.

“Our objective is to finish in the top four. Whether fourth, third or second, it’s not important. What is important is that we continue our positive run and hold down fourth place.

“Football is played on a knife’s edge – as was demonstrated during the week between Real Madrid and PSG. When the situation appears to be going well, a moment can change everything. So, concentration needs to be kept to a maximum.”

Allegri further spoke about the availability of his players and he believes some of the players need rest and might not feature against Sampdoria.

“I still need to decide who will play because I’m aware that some players need a rest. The good news is that Mattia De Sciglio and Alex Sandro are back with the team, and Juan Cuadrado feels fine.

“Federico Bernadeschi is out suspended tomorrow, but Danilo will definitely play. It will be his 100th game for Juventus, so how can he not play.

“Paulo Dybala is improving. He could be available for the Champions League, so could Leonardo Bonucci. On Sunday, Giorgio Chiellini should be back with the team. When the Champions League arrives, it’s like honey, it attracts everyone.”
