      The coach's post-match reaction: “The lads have had an excellent season so far – now we need to make it superb”

      Massimiliano Allegri was full of praise for his charges after they held off a sterling Lazio effort to claim the Coppa Italia on Wednesday.

      First-half goals by Dani Alves and Leo Bonucci saw the Bianconeri seal the club's 12th Coppa Italia trophy – and third in a row.

      “You have to take your hats off to the lads for the way they played tonight. It was a fantastic game and we were exceptional in the first half against an excellent Lazio side,” the boss noted.

      BOUNCING BACK

      “We've bounced back after letting our focus drop on Sunday and we've got the week off to a good start. We have another very important match on Sunday and we want to clinch the Scudetto.

      “It will be hard against Crotone because they've picked up 17 points in their last seven games and they're scrapping for their Serie A survival. We're going to have to produce a top performance.”

      DIGGING IN

      “We used up a lot of energy in the first half playing at a very high tempo. In the second half we concentrated on defending well against a very good Lazio side.”

      BUILDING UP

      “If Juventus have won a third Coppa Italia on the spin, credit must go to all of our players. They've had an excellent season so far – now we need to make it superb.”

      PITCHING IN

      “We need one more win and we must make sure we get it against Crotone. We're going to need the help of our fans at the stadium because we have to win the league this Sunday.”
