Allegri happy with Juventus form ahead of Champions League return

Juve face Atletico Madrid in the last 16.
PA | 9mo

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri believes his side are in fine fettle heading into a crucial stage of the season.

The Bianconeri cruised to a 3-0 home win against Frosinone on Friday night courtesy of goals from Paulo Dybala, Leonardo Bonucci and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juve extended their unbeaten Serie A run this season to 24 matches and hold a 14-point lead over nearest challengers Napoli, who play Torino on Sunday.

Their latest win was also the ideal warm-up for the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie against Atletico Madrid in Spain next Wednesday.

"Yes, we are in a good condition," Allegri told a post-match press conference.

"Apart from the setback against Parma we are doing well, and we are at a particularly important moment. The team's effort has been good and it has been from the individuals."

Dybala silenced his critics by ending a 10-game goal drought in spectacular fashion, firing into the top corner from outside the penalty area in the sixth minute.

"I'm happy for him," Allegri said. "He had a great performance and scored a great goal. The attackers live for this.

"Juventus needs a player like him, who is good on the lines. This year the development of the game makes him find less space to score, but he is continuing to play very well."

Allegri is keen to return from Madrid next week with an away goal.

"Let's go to Madrid to score," he added. "Obviously it will be a different game, but we are fine. The important thing is that the challenge is approached with the right attention."

Frosinone boss Marco Baroni took heart from his side's display in a defeat which left them second from bottom in the table, two points from safety.

"(I have) positive ideas because it is clear that the technical gap was visible in the field," Baroni said.

"I asked the team not to make a mistake, beyond the result. Not to take a step back. In the difficulties I saw a compact and balanced team, which never gave up on the possibility of attacking Juventus.

"From this defeat remains the performance, I find it as a growth point of our championship. Now we have a difficult schedule, but we knew that."

Baroni said his side responded well after going 2-0 down in the first 17 minutes.

"It was not easy, but the team remained well on the pitch, with firmness," he added.

"The performance I liked even if the result penalised us. We need to take positive things in these situations."
