Mattia Destro and Kevin Strootmanâ€™s penalty had twice put the Giallorossi in front at San Siro, but Cristian Zapata and Sulley Muntari pegged them back.
â€śIt was an entertaining game for the spectators, a little less for us. We knew Roma were strong in space, but there were incidents we shouldâ€™ve avoided,â€ť the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śIn the end itâ€™s a good result, as we used up so much physical and psychological energy on Wednesday for the Champions League and couldâ€™ve paid for that.
â€śWe couldâ€™ve done more when on 1-1, but made the wrong decisions on passes between the lines.â€ť
Allegri was sent off during a very tense moment of the match, when Riccardo Montolivo was booked for dissent.
â€śLetâ€™s just ignore the refereeing decisions. I accept them, I am sorry to have gone off the field and left my team â€“ even though it went well, as we scored afterwards! Montolivo was talking to the referee, he is the captain and didnâ€™t touch the official, so I donâ€™t see why he was booked. Itâ€™s a shame, as Montolivo will now be suspended for the derby.
â€śI think we played some good football in the second half and we did well to emerge from Romaâ€™s pressing. There were three or four occasions when Mattia De Sciglio was clear down the right, but it didnâ€™t reach him due to a bad control or a misplaced pass.â€ť
