Allegri wary of wounded Juventus

Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri has warned his Milan team not to underestimate Juventus when the sides meet on Saturday evening.
The Rossoneri travel to Turin knowing a win could be crucial in the title race, with the table-toppers currently five points clear of their city rivals Inter.
Quoted on Sky Sport, Allegri said: “This will not be a cowed Juventus, but one on the warpath. They will play a great game and we will need to be just as good to get a result.”
The Old Lady have struggled in recent weeks – an away loss at Lecce was followed by a home defeat to Bologna, leaving them in seventh place and hopes of Champions League spot fading fast.
“We cannot underestimate Juventus,” Allegri added. “We won’t find a team who has resigned. We would be crazy to show a drop in tension tomorrow. Juventus played well against us in the last game, they took advantage of our errors.”
Milan will be boosted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s assertion that he would line up against his former club and the return to form of Alexandre Pato, who was prominent in the 3-0 victory over Napoli on Monday.
“There is a good possibility Pato will play from the beginning. But those on the bench will also be decisive.”
A win will move Milan eight points clear at the top, with second placed Inter hosting Genoa on Sunday. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
