Allegri: 'We're closer to the Scudetto'

Massimiliano Allegri concedes “today's victory takes us closer to the Scudetto,” as Milan now need only a point.

Mathieu Flamini's early goal proved enough to defeat Bologna at San Siro despite a sluggish second half performance.

“Today's victory takes us closer to the Scudetto,” confirmed the Coach. “We're lacking just one more point and will try to get it as soon as possible.

“It was not an easy game, as Bologna put pressure on us, especially as this sort of game involves a lot more tension than others.

“Now we will try to get the mathematics under lock and key so that we can focus on the Coppa Italia semi-final with Palermo.”

Milan would've won the title today if Inter had failed to beat Cesena on Saturday, but Giampaolo Pazzini came off the bench to score a stoppage-time brace.

“Yesterday we went from a moment of joy for Inter's imminent defeat or draw to a moment of bitterness, but we knew that we had to win today anyway. We did it and that's all we need to focus on.”
