Juventus coach Allegri: Physical Maccabi won't be easy

Juventus coach Max Allegri says there'll be no underestimating Europa League rivals Maccabi Haifa.

Allegri was speaking after victory over Bologna.

He said: "The difference was made by the simplicity with which we played the game and the compactness, without chasing but going towards the ball.

"Those who played and those who took over played very well. That's why I'm very happy, but I'm happy especially for the boys: we came from a month in which we weren't winning and it seemed impossible for us to return to success.

"Maccabi? Not an easy team, they are physical and we will have to fight. But we have to take it home."
