Every word from Max Allegri’s post game press conference

Max Statman



Massimiliano Allegri spoke to DAZN after Juve-Empoli .

THE MATCH – We are more like a team, we had a good start then we punctured a week that cost us the delay in the championship. We had to confirm after the derby victory and the lads did well, it wasn’t easy because Empoli is a team that plays.In the first half we suffered a bit, in the second we increased the laps, they dropped and we gave life to a pleasant race.

GROWING– We are improving, in the second half different rhythms and it is a good sign of physical condition, this week we worked well and we need to continue. We have a good game on Tuesday and we have to try to overturn the result.

KEAN – He presented himself very well, it is normal that he had difficult moments but then he recovered, today he scored and had chances. I’m happy with him and everyone, even those who entered did well.

SELF- ESTEEM – The results help, with Cuadrado and Kostic on the outside we have to make the most of them. In the first half we had less dribble, then in the second we went better.

PAREDES– When he arrived he was not in optimal physical condition, he played when we had Rabiot and Locatelli out. Today when he came in he did well, we needed technique. I told him that he wouldn’t play because he needed a leg against Empoli, the mezzala in these games must be more coverage and leg, not even having Alex Sandro on the left.

Juventus ends Lecce’s unbeaten streak with 1-0 victory at Allianz Stadium

Max Statman



In a highly anticipated clash at their formidable fortress, Juventus managed to put an end to Lecce’s unbeaten streak in the new season, securing a narrow 1-0 victory that left fans at the Allianz Stadium roaring with excitement.

The Bianconeri had been looking to bounce back after a disappointing 4-2 loss to Sassuolo, and they did so in dramatic fashion.

Juventus fans were filled with anticipation as their team squared off against Lecce, who had been riding a wave of success early in the season.

The visitors had yet to concede a second-half goal and boasted three clean sheets in their last six outings. It seemed like Lecce might pose a significant challenge to the Old Lady’s dominance.

The match started with Federico Chiesa spearheading Juventus’s attack, coming tantalizingly close to breaking the deadlock. However, his effort narrowly missed the target, leaving fans on the edge of their seats.

This proved to be Juventus’s only significant opportunity in the first half, with Lecce’s solid defense standing firm.

The second half saw a revitalized Juventus side take the field, and it was Arkadiusz Milik who emerged as the game-changer.

In the 60th minute, Milik capitalized on Adrien Rabiot’s flicked header to bury the ball from close range, sending the Allianz Stadium into a frenzy.

Lecce’s manager, Roberto D’Aversa, made a triple substitution in a bid to turn the tide, granting his team more possession.

However, they struggled to make inroads into Juventus’s resolute defense. The home team, known for their indomitable spirit at the Allianz Stadium, denied Lecce any chance of finding the back of the net.

Lecce’s situation took a turn for the worse as Mohamed Kaba received a second yellow card for simulation, reducing them to ten men and making a comeback even more challenging.

The victory marked the end of Lecce’s unbeaten streak this season, a source of pride for their fans.

However, the fact that they have already accumulated as many points this season as they did after 14 fixtures in the previous campaign showcases their remarkable progress.

With just two defeats in their last 11 competitive outings, Lecce will be looking to carry this momentum forward as they prepare for their next formidable challenge against the reigning Scudetto champions, Napoli.

Juventus, on the other hand, will be relishing their return to the winner’s circle and will aim to build on this victory in the upcoming fixtures.

The Allianz Stadium once again proved to be their fortress, and their fans left with smiles on their faces as they celebrated a hard-fought triumph.

Match preview: Juventus v Lecce – Redemption beckons for the bianconeri

Max Statman



After a stunning defeat last weekend, Juventus is eager to regain their momentum on Tuesday evening when they host the Serie A high-flyers, Lecce, at the Allianz Stadium in Turin.

Juventus makes their way back to their home ground, licking their wounds after suffering a shocking loss to Sassuolo that ended their unbeaten streak.

In contrast, their southern opponents, Lecce, have been a force to be reckoned with, boasting three wins from five matches and remaining undefeated.

Before their unfortunate downfall in Sassuolo, Juventus appeared to be on the path to a promising season start that could potentially put them back in the Scudetto contention after several years of decline.

However, the manner in which they crumbled, including a bizarre own goal by Federico Gatti during second-half stoppage time, has raised concerns for head coach Max Allegri.

Probable lineup and team news

With a crucial match ahead against Atalanta on the weekend, Juventus can’t afford to underestimate Lecce. Max Allegri’s rotation may be relatively limited on Tuesday, with Tim Weah expected to feature on the right flank.

Arkadiusz Milik and Nicolo Fagioli are pushing hard for a spot in the starting lineup. Unfortunately, injuries continue to sideline defensive duo Alex Sandro and Mattia De Sciglio, while Paul Pogba is dealing with a doping case, and Moise Kean’s availability remains uncertain.

Dušan Vlahović, meanwhile, is also expected to start from. the bench as a precaution.

Juventus pobable starting XI: Szczesny; Rugani, Bremer, Danilo; Weah, Fagioli, Locatelli, Rabiot, Cambiaso; Milik, Chiesa.

Key players to watch

Federico Chiesa, in stellar form with four goals in his first five matches, is expected to lead Juventus’ attacking charge. Going up against Lecce’s rock-solid defense, which has conceded just four goals in five games, will be a stern test for the Italian striker.
