    Massimiliano Allegri underlined the importance of getting the win against Bologna, before Saturday's Napoli showdown

    THE IMPORTANCE OF VICTORY

    "We must win tomorrow night, because we need to get to reach the match against Napoli with the maximum points. We will face a Bologna side that beat Roma convincingly, and have only lost and drawn previous games by the odd goal apart from against Inter where they held their own until the final 30 minutes.

    "Bologna know how to suffer yet stay in the game and Inzaghi is good at setting them up like this. However, we have to win and we need to be focused and play as we did against Frosinone where the team played in a mature and responsible manner.

    "During the season you can get games like those against Frosinone that are tight encounters where you have to play with patience, whereas others you'll score early on or if not then lots in the second half. Tomorrow could be like last Sunday's match, but we hope that instead we'll opening the scoring within the first 10 minutes and it will go differently."

    JUVE-BOLOGNA: TEAM NEWS

    "Ronaldo has started the season well he's’ scoring goals and is playing well. He needs to keep playing and scoring and as he won't be available for Young Boys next week he will play tomorrow. 

    "Bentancur played a good game against Frosinone but he must be more assured at times, he has a good chance of playing tomorrow. Blaise Matuidi will be back in the line-up and then I need to choose between Pjanic and Can. 

    "Credit to Bernardeschi for the way he has raised his game. From the moment he arrived at this club, he knew that he had to dig deep and grow consistently in order to keep being selected, and that's exactly what he's done.

    "Perin will play tomorrow, whilst Chiellini will be rested, I'll decide as to which of the full-backs will get a breather. Dybala played well against Frosinone so he start's tomorrow, he's in good shape and the goals will come. Mandzukic has been playing a lot lately so he could be rested, that means that Kean could even feature tomorrow night.

    "Spinazzola is recovering well from his injury and it won't be long until he starts training with the rest of the squad. Barzagli is completely recovered and is available for tomorrow’s match."

    BEST NOMINATION

    "I didn't know that Lionel Messi had nominated me for the FIFA Best coach award, I know now and I'm happy about that. The prize was rightly won by Deschamps yesterday because he won the World Cup. I also have to compliment to Marotta who won the award for the Best Executive at The WFS Industry Awards."
