Allegri: AS Roma’s main rival Juventus
Juventus coach, Massimiliano Allegri, revealed that AS Roma are their main rivals in scudetto this season.
Although Juventus have won the Serie A title six times in a row, Allegri believes that scudetto hunt this season is not easy.
Last season Roma finished second, four points behind Juventus.
Allegri will anticipate a scudetto hunt next season which will take place very tight.
Allegri revealed that the competition this season will be much tighter because all their competitors have been stronger.
“It will be even more complicated to get our seventh consecutive scudetto, but that will remain our goal,” Allegri told BolaSport.com from Football-italia.net.
“Last season AS Roma got 87 points and they became our main rivals this season,” he said.
In addition, Allegri also did not want to underestimate the power of AC Milan, Inter, and Lazio.
“However, Napoli, Milan and Inter will also be fighting for the scudetto this season and do not forget Lazio too,” said Allegri.
Juventus bring Federico Bernardeschi, Douglas Costa, Rodrigo Bentancur, and Mattia De Sciglio in the transfer market this time.
However, they also have to lose Dani Alves who moved to PSG and Leonardo Bonucci who went to rival team, AC Milan.
Since becoming Juventus coach in 2014, the former AC Milan coach successfully brought Juventus twice to the Champions League final but failed to grant the title on both occasions.
