      Massimiliano Allegri reiterates that his Juventus team need to not let concentration levels drop when they take on Frosinone tomorrow night

      PLAYING WITH THE RIGHT MENTALITY

      "It's an important moment in the championship. We have gotten through the most complicated game of this week in the Champions League against Valencia, but now we have to put it behind us and focus on Frosinone. They will be playing the game of their lives after their matches against Lazio and Sampdoria and we must not lose focus. Tomorrow, is a game that we must approach with the right mentality.

      "The team is improving from a physical and technical point of view, because they are playing together more and more. Also from the defensive point of view, we are improving and we showed it on Wednesday in Valencia, even though we suffered too many crosses, but we are working hard and finding the right balance."

      TEAM NEWS FOR FROSINONE

      "Tomorrow, Szczesny will play, whilst Perin will make his Juventus debut at home to Bologna on Wednesday. Dybala will play, he's an important player and he's ready to score goals for us, he could play in different roles and I still have to decide how we will line up both in defence and attack.

      "We could potentially go with three at the back and if we do so then one of Alex Sandro, Cancelo or Cuadrado will be rested. If we play with four then it's possible that all of them will play.

      "Pjanic is fine but I still need to evaluate Bernardeschi. Matuidi and Mandzukic have given us a lot in recent weeks so they might both need a rest. Barzagli is out but should return on Wednesday, De Sciglio is out and must undergo new tests. Khedira and Douglas Costa are unavailable and will come back after the next international break."

      RONALDO EFFECT

      "Tomorrow, Ronaldo will give an excellent performance as he did in the first half hour in the Champions League.

      "The expectations on him are very high, but he does not have to prove anything. He must only continue to play, have fun and score, he is very demanding of himself. He is the best player in the world along with Messi and he brings a lot of value to the squad."
