Juventus coach Allegri relieved with Coppa win: Fiorentina made us suffer

Juventus coach Max Allegri recognises they were lucky to win their Coppa Italia clash at Fiorentina.

The Viola lost the first-leg of the semifinal at home due to a Lorenzo Venuti own goal in injury time.

“We have to congratulate Fiorentina on a good performance. We suffered with two counter-attacks in the first half, again in the second, and fortunately we didn’t concede because they made mistakes,” Allegri told Mediaset.

“The team then held out well, we ran very few risks and we had some favourable situations where we should’ve played a better final ball, then Cuadrado went for goal rather than the pass and we could’ve scored there.

“Winning in Florence is not easy, the team showed maturity, because this is a difficult match, we were missing a lot of players and Marley Ake worked hard.

“Danilo showed he is truly an extraordinary player of the highest level.”

Allegri continued: “Defensively, we did well, because apart from those counter-attacks, we allowed very little. We made mistakes with the final ball, Cuadrado made up for that earlier mistake by putting the ball into the box at the end and that created the goal.

“It was a good performance from everyone, we are down to the bare bones at the moment. Fortunately, Dybala, Bernardeschi and Rugani will be back tomorrow and we’ll have a few fresh legs.”
