Allegri Urges Juventus to be More Clinical Following Genoa win

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is of the opinion that his team should be more clinical upfront.

The Bianconeri bagged three important points after beating Genoa 2-0 last night thanks to goals from Juan Cuadrado and Paulo Dybala. The fixture was a lot more one-sided than the scoreline may suggest as Juve had 27 shots on goal while the visitors had none.

The Bianconeri could have scored a lot more than they did last night and Allegri said that they should be a lot more clinical in front of goal.

As quoted by Juventus’ official website, the 54-year-old said in the post-match press conference: “We won the game tonight by enjoying ourselves and creating so many chances. We’ll certainly have to improve in terms of how clinical we are in front of goal because so many of our efforts were at [Salvatore] Sirigu and we definitely could’ve scored more goals.

“That will be a key step forward for us in terms of our development, but the positive to take from tonight is the result and our performance.”

Following their win over Andriy Shevchenko’s side, Juventus are now fifth in the Serie A table with 27 points, seven behind fourth-placed Atalanta. Next up, for the Bianconeri, is their final Champions League group game against Malmo. Given that they have already qualified for the knockout stages, there is a good chance Allegri could rest a number of regulars for that match.
