Juventus coach Allegri frustrated despite Cagliari win

Juventus coach Max Allegri was frustrated despite their 3-0 win over Cagliari.

Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain secured the victory, while Gigi Buffon parried the first penalty to be awarded in Serie A using VAR.

“We needed a strong performance after the Super Cup, although we weren't consistent throughout the 90 minutes.

“Today the lads defended well after the penalty, because we did not defend properly before then and allowed Cagliari a few chances," Allegri told Mediaset Premium.

It was only 1-0 when Alex Sandro tripped Duje Cop and it was spotted by the Video Assistant Referee, but Buffon saved the Diego Farias spot-kick.

“I waited for the referee to make a decision, he gave the penalty, but fortunately Buffon is always a Number 1 and he got us out of a difficult situation.

“Against Lazio, the second Ciro Immobile goal was similar, we gave them about 10 minutes to choose a cross. If you cross under pressure, it becomes more difficult to find your target.

“The lads interpreted the match well overall and I am happy."
