Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri: We're not struggling at all

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri denies the champions are in crisis.

Juve meet Crotone on Sunday.

Allegri argued: “Juve are not in a difficult moment at all. We must reach March in the best condition to be in the running for all our objectives. We are only missing two or three points in Serie A, not more than that. Napoli are in front because they are doing extraordinary things at the moment.

“In the Champions League, we are on track with the process we are meant to have. We are on the verge of qualification for the next round, which is the first objective right now for Juventus. We've got a very good chance in Athens with Olympiacos.

“We were in crisis two years ago, when 12 points from the top and really struggling. It's not a crisis now. A year ago, we weren't playing particularly good football, but still had a seven-point lead at the top of the table. You change when it is necessary."
