Max Allegri noted “it was important to end 2014 top of the table,” but was “astonished” by Zdenek Zeman’s Cagliari.
This 3-1 result means that even if Roma beat Milan at the weekend, they will not be able to catch the Bianconeri ahead of the Christmas break.
“I was astonished by the change of system and did not expect it,” confessed Allegri to Sky Sport Italia after Zeman scrapped his trademark 4-3-3 for a 4-4-2 tactic today.
