      Massimiliano Allegri speaks before Juve's Serie A home match with Cagliari

      COMING UP AGAINST CAGLIARI

      "For tomorrow's match, I've asked the guys to just win the game. It won't be easy, it never is easy to win and we all saw that against Empoli. The matches are won on the pitch and we cannot afford to drop any points. Cagliari are the team that has covered the most ground in the league and are dangerous in the box, they are a very fast side and Pavoletti up-top is very strong on set-pieces. If you concede more than 30 goals then you won't be winning the title so tomorrow we have to keep a clean sheet, so let's beat Cagliari and then we can think about Manchester United.

      "Szczesny will play in goal, whilst in defence Cancelo will be on the right, I still have to choose who will partner Bonucci in the centre and finally on the left, one will play between Alex Sandro and De Sciglio. In midfield, there will be Pjanic and Matuidi, and for the third option I still have to decide between Bentancur, Khedira and Cuadrado. Up front Ronaldo starts and I'll choose between Dybala, Mandzukic and Douglas Costa to play with him. Chiellini and Bernardeschi are out and Spinazzola will play a couple of games with Primavera to get back to full fitness."

      THE SCUDETTO FIGHT AND THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

      "We are going strong, but also those behind us. Inter are doing a great championship, Napoli has lost the direct match and this is making the difference between us and them. We have to think about one race at a time. We must have great respect for the opponent throughout the game. " Then the speech moves on to Europe. "We are working to achieve the goal that in recent years we have not managed to achieve, the Champions League, but it is not an obsession. I am lucky to train Juventus, it is one of the most important companies in Europe, a formation that can aspire to win it. This year the number one candidate is Barcelona. We are among the first four ».
