“It was an important victory, playing at times a poor match, but given the conditions it was like that,” Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said. “We made a good step towards fourth place and we also have Napoli now just one point ahead. If we are at this point, thanks to the growth of the team after a disastrous start, it means that we must have no regrets. Sometimes football goes the opposite of what is shown on the pitch, because we didn’t win many games when playing well, and absences shouldn’t be an alibi.”
