    "We have to get over this one quickly. Our match against Inter next Saturday's is decisive"

    Massimiliano Allegri ordered Juve to pick themselves up and focus on the next one, strong in the knowledge that they remain in command at the Serie A summit, following a disappointing result against Napoli.

    “We have to get over this one quickly,” the coach began after Kalidou Koulibaly's late header clinched the points on Sunday night.

    “Anything can happen in a one-off head-to-head. We struggled a little towards the end but we needed to see the game out. It was a match we didn't want to lose but let's not forget that we're still a point ahead and we just need to hold onto our lead.

    “We have two home games and two away games left, starting at San Siro, and next week will be a decisive game for us.

    “Napoli deserve credit for getting themselves back into the Scudetto running. They're good with the ball but this match was basically decided by a single moment.

    “Neither side played pretty football today. We should have done better in possession and not rushed around so much when they had it. As I said, we should have played differently in the last few minutes and not allowed them opportunities like what turned out to be the decisive one.

    “The title race will go down to the wire because there are no easy matches for either side. We have a week to prepare for another big match now. We just need to get our heads down and focus on that.”
