Allegri: 'Race not over yet'

Massimiliano Allegri will not shelve Milan’s Scudetto dreams despite today’s setback against Bologna. “We might deserve it.”

The Rossoneri were a point behind Serie A leaders Juventus going into the weekend and are now on level terms after scraping a stoppage-time 1-1 draw with Bologna.

“We had to get the points this afternoon,” admitted Allegri. “In the second half the team believed and created many chances. Unfortunately we were unable to win.

“If Juventus win tonight against Roma, then they have a great chance of winning the Scudetto. If they do not, then it’s all the same as it was before.

“Do Milan deserve the title? If we finish above Juve, then yes. If Juventus finish the season in front then they’ll deserve it, but nothing is decided yet.

“Don’t forget not even second place is mathematically secure either. Now we have to win the next game.”

Antonio Cassano came off the bench and impressed, helping to create opportunities for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“Cassano did great things, as it is in his DNA.”
