      The boss dissected his side's performance after drawing with Parma: “We had the points in the bag but made mistakes on their second and third goals”

      Massimiliano Allegri admitted that Juventus were not up to scratch defensively after Parma managed to claw their way back into the game from 3-1 down to earn a draw on Saturday.

      “We need to work on our balance,” the coach began. “We can't hope to score four or five goals every game. We found ourselves defending two against two on several occasions and when you have duels like that you win some and you lose some.

      “We eased off the pressure and we weren't solid enough at the back. We made mistakes on their second and third goals – first leaving them acres of space in the box, then at the end we got sloppy and you pay the price for that.
       
      “It's a shame because we had the points in the bag but we let our focus drop. You can't just attack. If you score three but you let in three  as well, that's not good. To win games you have to work really hard defensively.

      “We've made mistakes in two games: in the first half against Lazio and at Atalanta. We need to keep working. Fortunately, we still have a good lead at the top of the table.”
