    "Hats off to SPAL: they stopped us from playing our football. Now we can recharge mentally and physically and get ready for AC Milan and Real"

    A 0-0 draw with SPAL was not the result Juventus were hoping for but Massimiliano Allegri is long enough in the tooth not to let one disappointing result worry him.

    “You have to accept nights like this in football,” the coach began after the stalemate in Ferrara. “We've had a long run of games and it's taken a lot out of us physically and mentally.

    “Hats off to SPAL: they played an aggressive game and stopped us from playing our football. We weren't at our sharpest today and we could have done better with the few chances we had. Let's just say we could have drawn the game against Lazio and won here tonight...

    “This was always going to be a difficult match because we've played three games in six days and we'd run out of energy. The good thing is we kept another clean sheet today and we're top of the league.”

    Serie A goes on hold for two weeks now and Allegri is confident Juve will be raring to go again after the international break.

    “We have this break and it will give us time to get some of our injured players fit again, recharge our batteries – both mentally and physically – and get ready to face AC Milan and Real.”
