    “It looked like being a bad Saturday night for us but the lads got themselves together. We have to improve at the back, though. Dybala is not 100% yet”

    Massimiliano Allegri could afford a smile and a joke after watching his side come from behind after a nightmare start to leave Genoa with all three points.

    “We were trying to beat last year's record and we made a good stab of it – 2-0 down inside the first seven minutes...” the boss began, referring to the same fixture last season when Juventus lost 3-1 conceding three first-half goals.

    “It looked like being a bad Saturday night for us but then the lads got themselves together and managed to turn it around. Defensively we did better in the second half than in the first.

    “We came here today with the aim of winning and keeping a clean sheet. We didn't manage to do that and it shows we still have to improve at the back.

    “We must learn to keep our shape better. In the first half we made the same sort of mistakes we made against Lazio, affording our opponents too much space."

    Allegri also spared a word for matchwinner Paulo Dybala, whose hat-trick helped seal the comeback.

    “He's producing some fantastic stuff at the moment but he's still got room for improvement.

    “He could have a great season in Italy and the Champions League as long as he doesn't rest on his laurels. He's got superb technique and he's not 100% yet.”
