Juventus coach, Massimilano Allegri has urged his players not to get tangled up in their own head ahead of their derby d`Italia clash with Inter Milan on Saturday.
Juventus got their chance of securing their seventh Scuddeto title blow away by Crotone who held them to a 1-1 draw as Napoli now close upon them with just one point behind.
Allegri in a pre-match conference on Friday said, “Now is a great time where we need to show every ounce of courage, freedom, enthusiasm, and willpower. We must be ready for every ball and every tackle. The league is all to play for. On Sunday, we fouled our opponent eight times and suffered 18 fouls which are a negative figure for us. Tomorrow, we have to play the right way otherwise we won’t come out alive.
He said apart from Chiellini, Sturaro and De Sciglio, every other player is in top gear for the must-win game against Inter Milan who is also aiming to return to Champions League action next season.
Juventus and Napoli will be playing away from home. A win for Napoli against Fiorentina could see them top the league should Juventus fail to defeat Inter Milan in San Siro.
