Allegri: 'Dybala against Frosinone'
By Football Italia staff

Max Allegri confirmed Paulo Dybala will start against Frosinone and could return Juventus to three at the back amid an injury crisis.
It kicks off on Sunday at 19.30 UK time (18.30 GMT), click here for a match preview.
The Bianconeri have a perfect start in Serie A and opened the Champions League with a 2-0 victory away to Valencia, even though that was overshadowed by Cristiano Ronaldo’s very harsh red card.
“Ronaldo is a wonderful added value for Juventus, as his performances show,” said the Coach in a Press conference.
“However, the team does not depend on him. There are very high expectations around Cristiano and he is also very demanding with himself, but he has nothing to prove. He just needs to play, have fun and score goals. What happened on Wednesday is already behind us.”
As Ronaldo faces at least a one-match ban in the Champions League, he’ll focus all his energy on Serie A for the next three rounds against Frosinone, Bologna and Napoli.
“I can confirm Dybala will start tomorrow. He is an important player, there are goals in those legs and he could also play as a centre-forward :tuttosport:, although I’d have to make some adjustments. The team is improving in general and getting to know each other better.
“It is possible we could go to three at the back. If it is three, then one of Alex Sandro, Joao Cancelo and Juan Cuadrado will be rested. If we have four at the back, they could all be out there.
“Football is beautiful even when there aren’t many goals, because defence is part of the sport and, if it’s done well, looks magnificent.
“Frosinone and Bologna are both teams who will play the game of a lifetime against us, so we have to step it up. Focus is crucial, because there is the risk of too much positive energy after the Valencia win.”
Allegri confirmed that goalkeeper Mattia Perin will make his Juventus debut in Wednesday’s midweek round against Bologna.
Douglas Costa is both suspended for four Serie A rounds and injured following his spit at Sassuolo winger Federico Di Francesco.
“He paid his fine, he understood everything and what’s more is also now injured. That is behind us now, so no more talking about Sassuolo.”

Allegri: 'Juve required patience'

By Football Italia staff












Max Allegri expected Frosinone to frustrate Juventus and explained some of his tactical decisions to break them down.
It was a hard-fought 2-0 victory at the Stadio Benito Stirpe, decided in the final 10 minutes by Cristiano Ronaldo and Federico Bernardeschi.
“We expected it to be like this. Frosinone had conceded five to Sampdoria and we played down to 10 men for 70 minutes against Valencia on Wednesday,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.
“We just needed to have patience and after many shots, crosses and passes, we found the breakthrough.”
Allegri rested Blaise Matuidi, Joao Cancelo and Sami Khedira, using Emre Can in midfield.
“The idea was to give width, but that wasn’t happening, so I put Miralem Pjanic further forward for Emre Can to cover the defence and push Juan Cuadrado further up.
“Federico Bernardeschi then came on very well, we held the ball in more dangerous areas and eventually got the goals we needed.
“With Emre Can in front of the defence, you can afford two midfielders with more quality.”
Paulo Dybala was given a rare start, but again failed to make much of an impact.
“He needs to play. I’ve said since he arrived that his best physical quality is his running, so he needs to play and to move. He had some good moves today, controlling on the edge of the box where there was traffic, but he needs to run at defenders and he’ll do that once his fitness levels improve.
“Dybala has no need to feel this performance anxiety. You can be the best player in the world, but if you’re not at 100 per cent mentally, the others will get to the ball faster. Mario Mandzukic is always first to the ball, but today he was a little less sharp because of fatigue, it’s natural.”
Juve are the only side with a 100 per cent record, with Napoli in second, Sassuolo and Fiorentina joint third.
“Napoli had over 90 points last season, so of course it’s natural they’d still be doing well, especially after bringing in a talented and experienced Coach.
“The others are a little far behind, so we right now need to step on the gas and create a gap before we have the head-to-head clashes.”

The part about Emre Can in front of defense is interesting. I wonder if he means two more offensive midfielders, when he says two midfielders with quality. I would love to see Emre Can with Berna and Pjanic as btb.

Allegri: ‘Ronaldo and Dybala will play’
By Football Italia staff



Juventus Coach Massimiliano Allegri confirms Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala will both play against Bologna tomorrow.
The Bianconeri have a busy schedule coming up, with Napoli to come on Saturday evening before Young Boys visit the Old Lady in the Champions League.
In recent seasons with Real Madrid, CR7 was rested at the beginning of the season to be in ideal condition for the latter stages of European competition, but he’ll be available tomorrow.
“He won’t be there against Young Boys on Tuesday,” Allegri pointed out, with Ronaldo suspended for his red card against Valencia.
“We’re at the start of the season, he’s fine physically and he needs to keep playing and scoring, so he’ll play tomorrow.
“Dybala? Yes, he’ll play. The day before yesterday he had a good game, he gets judged on his goals alone but he was good against Frosinone. He needs to play.
“[Mattia] Perin will play tomorrow, [Giorgio] Chiellini will rest and the doubt is Alex [Sandro]. If he doesn’t play then it’ll be [Juan] Cuadrado on the right and [Joao] Cancelo on the left… unless I play [Federico] Bernardeschi on the left.
"Andrea Barzagli has completely recovered and could play from the start. Old horses don't need to train, when they need to run you just put them on the turf and they run! :lol::lol:
"If Barzagli plays we could play with a back-three, if he doesn't it could be four. I have to evaluate the conditions of Cuadrado, Alex Sandro and Cancelo, and I need to keep some changes from the bench in reserve or I'll have no changes to make.
"Leonardo Spinazzola? He's good, and we can slowly reintegrate him with the squad.
“As for Moise Kean, I had him in mind for Frosinone on Sunday, in fact he was about to come on when we scored and I changed it. Tomorrow is a possibility for him.
“I could play Dybala and Ronaldo together, or I could put someone else up there too and in that case it’d be Kean, because he’s a player worthy of Juventus in every respect.”
Rodrigo Bentancur played on Sunday, but the Uruguayan was subbed early in the second half and his performance drew criticism from fans and the media.
“Tomorrow he has a good chance of playing, then we’ll see about the others. [Blaise] Matuidi will be back, so I’ll have to choose one of Emre Can or Matuidi.
“He [Bentancur] had a good match in tight spaces the other night, but he has to be more decisive when he shoots or when he gets forward.
“He has important qualities, but he needs to have more belief in what he can do. He needs to be getting some goals and some assists, and he can only do that if he relaxes and plays more freely.”
There has been much talk this season of using Bernardeschi as a mezzala, could that happen tomorrow?
“The other day he was playing as a mezzala, because we needed a player like that in that part of the pitch,” Allegri pointed out.
“In Valencia he was useful on the wing in the defensive and attacking phase. He’s improved a lot and the credit all goes to him because as soon as he arrived he knew that to be in a great team meant improving in every regard.”

Allegri: ‘Juventus have to win’
By Football Italia staff



Massimiliano Allegri warns Juventus “have to win” against Bologna tomorrow, not least because they face Napoli at the weekend.
The Bianconeri have taken maximum points from their first five Serie A games, but the Coach won’t allow any slip-ups tomorrow.
“Juve have to get used to winning continuously,” Allegri said in his pre-match Press conference.
“There are matches like Frosinone, others are more open and tomorrow maybe we’ll score early and it’ll be a totally different game.
“The more the Frosinone game went on the deeper they dropped, and the more chances we had. The team played a good game, especially in the second half where we were more lucid and worked the ball into the box more, where the opponent can’t commit fouls and you have the advantage.
“Tomorrow we have to win, because we need to get to the head-to-head game [with Napoli] with at least three points’ advantage.
“We’re facing a Bologna team that beat Roma clearly, and in the games they’ve lost it’s always been 1-0.
“They got one 0-0 and in the game against Inter they may have lost 3-0, but they conceded goals in the final minutes.
“They know how to suffer and stay in the game, and [Filippo] Inzaghi is really good in that sense, but we have to win.
“The mental aspect is important, we can’t take this lightly. We need to play like in Frosinone, where the team played in a mature and responsible manner.
“There are times when you’ll score more in the second half and times where you unlock the game immediately. Seasons are like that, and it all balances out.
“The team has been improving physically in the second half and that’s important for our season, because obviously when the other team is starting to tire you’ll have more chance of scoring.”
Yesterday was the FIFA World Football Awards, and Argentina captain Lionel Messi voted for Allegri as Coach of the Year, behind Ernesto Valverde and Pep Guardiola.
“I didn’t know that, I’m finding out about it now. I’m happy. [Didier] Deschamps rightly won the prize yesterday, because he won the World Cup.
“I’d also like to compliment [Beppe] Marotta, because he was given the prize for the best general manager in Europe.
“It was a beautiful day and we’re sorry we couldn’t attend, but we have these matches so close together.”
Before Frosinone, the Old Lady had two red cards in two matches…
“That doesn’t mean we’ll now get a red card every Sunday,” Allegri said.
“These moments always happen, in every season. In Frosinone we stopped that run.
“We all saw the red card [for Ronaldo] in Spain, Douglas Costa was rightly given a four game ban. We all have to be lucid, because it’s easier to finish a game with 11 men.”
