Allegri rules out Juventus' Scudetto chances despite winning run

Despite turning their Serie A campaign around after winning seven consecutive Serie A matches without conceding a goal, the Juventus boss insists the club's goal remains Champions League qualification, not winning the Serie A title.

The Serie A leaders,


, conceded their first defeat of the season to Inter on Wednesday as many believe now the title race has opened up to several teams. However, ahead of their Saturday's meeting with Udinese,


’ boss rules his side out of the Scudetto race.

Max Allegri


"They don't change. Napoli are the clear favourites, they are many points ahead after 16 games.

"They've had a stoppage and that's it, but I'd say that Napoli are having an extraordinary year and are still the clear favourites.

"Then there's the Inter and Milan. Our goal is to stay in the top four and play for our chances in the Coppa Italia and Europa League."

Angel Di Maria

will be available for the first time since the World Cup final against Udinese. Allegri added:

"Tomorrow, returning to the stadium with our fans and with the stadium full will be a good opportunity for us.

"We have recovered Di Maria. [Leandro] Paredes is improving in condition. Bremer is a bit tired and I will evaluate their conditions today."


Federico Chiesa

’s injury recovery, the Italian coach added:

"The other day he played one half if you consider added time. Those who enter the second half with added time always play almost one half anyway.

"He's growing in his condition; I don't know if I'll be able to get him to start, but the more he goes on the more playing time he puts in. I'm very happy."
