Atalanta 2-2 Juventus

Atalanta 2-2 Juventus

And Allegri, whose side sit nine points clear of second-placed Roma after Remo Freuler capitalised on Gianluigi Buffon's error to snatch a late equaliser at Atleti Azzurri d'Italia, believes Friday's encounter has provided the flawless warm-up for Juve's trip to the principality club.

Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri is confident that his side will take the lessons learned from the dramatic 2-2 draw against Atalanta into their Champions League clash against Monaco.

"In the second half we suffered from two counter-attacks that were created by our mistakes, and that means the game was going from end to end", added Allegri. We knew that playing here would not be easy.

- The last time Juventus failed to win against Atalanta in the league was in May 2009 and they had 13 wins in a row prior to this draw.

The Social Democrats surged in national polls after Martin Schulz, a former European Parliament president, was nominated as Ms. Angela Merkel will seek a fourth term as German chancellor in September's federal election.

"A match like this happens, even the players are human". We are at 84 points and we can reach 96 points if we win all of our remaining games, we are doing well.

Andrea Conti ensured it would be a hard evening for Juve with a deserved opener just before the break, with Leonardo Spinazzola later scoring an unfortunate own goal to level proceedings.

The visitors were furious shortly afterwards as they felt they should have been awarded a penalty for a Rafael Toloi handball in the area.

But Allegri was not looking for excuses after he saw his side clumsily throw away their advantage late on. We suffered a little in the first half but then when we did get the lead, we had to be more clinical. The [penalty] incident would be irrelevant if we had played better.

Mourinho accepts top four finish is impossible
When I played for United against Arsenal , I always thought I was going into a situation that was totally out of my comfort zone. Manchester stay fifth, four points behind Man City in fourth while Arsenal are two points further back with a game in hand.

"With an eight-point lead in Serie A, a semi-final appearance in the Champions League and a place in the Italian Cup final, we have to believe, and be convinced".

"We just needed to stay with the game, but we lost our shape", Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said.

But with Ligue 1 side Monaco flying high, he insists nothing's won yet and the primary focus is on making sure Juve give Roma no chance of a late-season comeback.

Atalanta's fervent black and blue army have spurred Gian Piero Gasperini's men on to home wins over Napoli, Inter Milan and Roma this season.
