Sat 20 November 2021 | 23:01

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri explained how they neutralized Lazio while he was irritated by Dejan Kulusevski’s indecisiveness inside the box.

Leonardo Bonucci

scored twice from the spot to secure a 2-0 win for

Massimiliano Allegri

's side, making it back-to-back wins in Serie A after they beat

Fiorentina

1-0 before the international break.

“I never watch the penalties!”

Allegri

told

DAZN

.

“We had a good game, but we did waste too many scoring opportunities, because this is a team with great potential and the ability to reach the opposition goal, then we are too hasty.”

Allegri was extremely furious with

Dejan Kulusevski

for missing a late opportunity.

“You go to the corner flag with that ball, you don’t try to dribble everyone. These are the things we need to learn, we always try to do too much, go for a back-heel or a solo run, they are unnecessary and wasteful.

“It wasn’t easy for him, he needs to be more decisive in the box, as he had a few chances and needed to take a moment to think and make the right choice.”

By putting

Adrien Rabiot

on

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic

,

Allegri

did well to neutralize

Lazio

.

“Rabiot, Locatelli and McKennie worked really hard in midfield. Rabiot has a great engine, he could’ve played another 90 minutes, and he did really well to limit Milinkovic-Savic,” confirmed Allegri.

“I admired the spirit we showed, the only chances we allowed for Lazio were on the counter because we had so many players going forward trying to score. This is why I say that the chances need to be finished, because otherwise you are open to conceding.

Danilo

was forced off with an injury for the visitors after 15 minutes following a strong challenge from

Elseid Hysaj

, with Dejan Kulusevski replacing the Brazilian.

“We lost Danilo early, I introduced Kulusevski and there was the risk of being unbalanced, but the lads did really well.

“I have never seen a great team win with complacency. You must always respect your opponents and put in the effort, and we dropped points this season because we didn’t have the same attitude against them that we did in the bigger games.”
