Allegri: 'Zeman amazed me'

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.

Zeman: ‘Pleasure to play Juventus’

The Isolani face the League leaders at home tomorrow, with the Bianconeri heading to Doha to play the Supercoppa on December 22.

“Which of their players would I take?” Zeman considered in his Press conference ahead of the game.

“All of them, but the problem is their team as a collective.

“We have to play our own game, we know it will be very difficult but we have to try.

‘Juventus are not fatigued’

Juventus Coach Max Allegri categorically denies that his team is tired ahead of the Cagliari game, but admits he's out of options defensively.

The Bianconeri are up against Zdenek Zeman's Cagliari as they come to the end of a busy run of fixtures, culminating in the Supercoppa Italiana against Napoli next week before the winter break.

Whilst the team failed to win three points against Sampdoria last Sunday and their strikers have not scored in the last three games, Allegri has today dismissed claims that they are suffering from fatigue.

Serie A Week 15: Did You Know?

Sampdoria spoil a perfect Juventus 2014 and end a Serie A record, Zdenek Zeman draws after 10 years and Milan break their Napoli taboo in Susy Campanale's stats.

Juventus almost won every single Serie A home match in 2014, but were tripped up at the 18th and final hurdle. Since their 1-1 result with Cagliari on May 11 2013, they had put together 25 consecutive League victories at the Juventus Stadium, a new all-time Serie A record. It was bettered only in other top European Leagues by Barcelona (39 in 1958-60), Saint-Etienne (28 in 1974-75) and Bayern Munich (26 in 1971-73). They remain unbeaten here in all tournaments for 40 games, including 33 successes.

The Sardinians have now failed to score in three consecutive Serie A games and find themselves in the drop zone.
