Juventus coach Max Allegri calm as Napoli go clear at top of table

Juventus coach Max Allegri is staying calm after losing ground on Napoli.

Juve now trail the Serie A leaders by four points.

Allegri said, “I see that we have one game less, and that on Saturday in Rome we'll play our sixth away match in eight games," Allegri pointed out in his Press conference today.

“We missed the match with Atalanta on Sunday, so after Saturday's game there will be 12 games left for us, of which we have seven at home and five away, so it's a good fixture list for us.

“That said, the league will come down to the last game. It will be a beautiful challenge, a beautiful championship between two teams that are fighting.

“It's the only [top] League in Europe that's still open because all the others are pretty much over, or close to being over.

“In the end whoever wins will be the best, whoever leads the league on May 20 will deserve to win it.

“We have the desire to win a seventh consecutive Scudetto, and above all to challenge a team which is doing great things.

“So for us it's an important challenge, a beautiful challenge, but tomorrow we have the Coppa Italia and the Coppa Italia for us is an equal goal."
