Barzagli: Juventus deserve first

Andrea Barzagli has underlined that Juventus are worthy of the 11-point advantage they have at the top of the table.

The Old Lady are now just four points away from winning the Scudetto with five games left after the 1-0 win over Milan.

“We deserve to be top of the League,” the defender stated. “We’ve won extremely difficult away games, against Inter and Lazio for example, and today at home against Milan.

“At times last season, also when playing at home, we struggled to break the deadlock. However, this year we’ve managed to bring more intensity to our displays and make the best of the chances created.”

Juve, who have collected 10 more points away from home than anyone else in Serie A, beat the Rossoneri thanks to an Arturo Vidal penalty.

“It was a very difficult game, especially in the first half,” the 31-year-old continued.

“Milan made us chase them, they moved the ball around well and we weren’t particularly aggressive. We upped the tempo after the interval and things changed.”
