TURIN – Juventus managed to beat Napoli in the continuation of the 2023/2024 Italian League. This result made Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, very satisfied.
Juventus narrowly won 1-0 when they hosted Napoli at Juventus Stadium, Saturday (9/12/2023) early morning WIB. One winning goal for the team nicknamed The Old Lady was contributed by Federico Gatti in the 51st minute.
After the match, Allegri said this was a very important result for Juventus. Because thanks to this victory, the Old Lady temporarily topped the standings with a collection of 36 points, 12 points ahead of Napoli who are in fifth position.
“This victory is very important, because we put Napoli with a 12 (point) advantage and that is an extraordinary result,” said Allegri, quoted from Football Italia, Saturday (9/12/2023).
Regarding the match, Allegri admitted that Napoli quite controlled the match by creating several golden opportunities, one of which was through Khvicha Kvaratskhelia. However, he was also satisfied with the performance of the Juventus players.
The reason is, Dusan Vlahovic and his colleagues worked very hard to win the match. This hard work made Allegri give credit to his team.
“Napoli controlled a lot of the ball, but the chances weren’t too big and we had a lot of spirit. “I have a group of players who work hard,” he said.
“What we need to do is slow things down, not always try to make it one-touch football. “We should have controlled the ball better in several moments of the match,” continued Allegri.
Juventus is indeed at the top of the standings. But that condition could immediately change if Inter Milan can achieve victory when they host Udinese at the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium on Sunday (10/12) early morning WIB. Because the Nerazzurri – Inter Milan’s nickname – are only one point away from the Old Lady.
