Juventus coach Max Allegri feared Atalanta would over-run them

Juventus coach Max Allegri feared Atalanta were going to over-run them on Sunday.

The Bianconeri had been 2-0 up in Bergamo after 25 minutes through Federico Bernardeschi and Gonzalo Higuain, but Mattia Caldara and Bryan Cristante completed the comeback.

“It was a good performance in terms of technical passing and intensity, it seemed comfortable, then we conceded that goal on a free kick to shake things up," Allegri told Mediaset Premium.

“In the end, it actually went well for us, because we got irritable and risked losing it on the counter. It's disappointing because we conceded two goals.

“We should've been better prepared on the free kick for the rebound, while on the second goal we gave the ball away too much and it was a fine header from Cristante. I was worried at the end, as we could've lost it on an incident and every point will be precious come the end of the season."
