      The Juventus coach reflects on Sunday afternoon’s 1-0 win over Bologna

      "There was some hangover after Wednesday." - Massimiliano Allegri doesn’t hide from the difficulties his side faced in Bologna, with the Champions League match against Atletico now behind them, although it inevitably was the dominating topic in the build-up to the weekend’s game. However, the Bianconeri did well in overcoming the obstacles that were put in front of them at the Dall'Ara, to take three more important points back to Turin. “It was important to win - explained the coach – in order for us to keep the advantage over Napoli the same. We are working hard for the return match against Atletico, we want to get Douglas Costa back and come into the game at the highest level, but the match will also require some luck. Thomas will be out, and they will be even more hard to break down and we will have to be quick in our play and precise in our passing, something that today was missing. On 12th March, we will be in the best possible condition, but we must still continue to grow. Pjanic was sick today, Khedira was out, whilst Bonucci and Chiellini are back. I'm optimistic over the return leg - concludes Allegri - You have to slowly build the side up. Today was a part of the puzzle, and on the 12th we will need to come into the game without adrenaline sky high!”
