      The Juventus coach spoke about the match against Genoa at his press conference this afternoon.

      Tomorrow, at lunch time, Juventus will try to continue their unstoppable march to the top of Serie A, when they meet Genoa at Marassi. Today, though, Massimiliano Allegri spoke about the forthcoming game against the Ligurian team during his press conference at the Allianz Stadium. “It will be a difficult game. Genoa at home, in 14 games, have lost only three times, conceding half of the goals they have conceded away. We left two points with them. To win the Scudetto we are missing five victories. At this moment balance must reign, as it must always reign. On Tuesday, Juventus did an extraordinary thing to overturn the situation of the first leg, in a beautiful and special evening, lived with great emotion by all. But now we have to plunge back into the league.”

      TOMORROW’S FORMATION

      The Juventus coach then spoke about the squad for tomorrow's match. “Ronaldo has played many games this year and I have left him at home, plus he will then have two commitments with his national team. It was too risky to let him play. Within a team, the coach speaks and confronts the players: yesterday I spoke with him to schedule his matches from here to the next few weeks. The same thing for Chiellini, which I do every year, as well as for other players. Right now, players like Dybala, Emre Can, Rugani, Bernardeschi, Caceres and Spinazzola will become even more important, those who have played less in recent months. Against Genoa, it is likely that Matuidi will rest, as will Chiellini. Perin will play in goal. In attack, either Mandzukic or Kean will play.”

      THE INJURY SITUATION

      “I saw Cuadrado this morning and he moved his legs better than usual: we will have him available for the end of the season. De Sciglio will return to work on Monday and he will be available for Empoli, Douglas Costa will take an exam on Thursday and, if all goes well, we will have him for the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. Barzagli has to be evaluated, while Khedira is doing aerobic work.”

      THE MATCH AGAINST ATLETICO MADRID

      “It was a nice evening, first of all for the enthusiasm of the fans: this will have to be repeated both in the league and in the Champions League. We must continue to work while keeping a low profile and training well. Against Atletico Madrid we had lucidity and calmness both at 1-0 and 2-0. One of the goals was not to allow them a corner kick and we succeeded. Ajax? They are a fast team with quality players.”
