Allegri: Juventus have won nothing yet

12 March 2018

Despite comfortably beating Udinese 2-0 in Serie A on Sunday afternoon, Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was keen to reinforce that his side had a long way to go in the title race.

"I am happy with the two goals and the performance", Dybala told reporters.

"On Wednesday, we got past Tottenham to reach the next Champions League round, we beat Udinese and can now focus on Atalanta [who they play in Serie A on Wednesday]".

Gonzalo Higuain missed a first-half penalty, but Juve took another comfortable step toward a seventh consecutive scudetto.

"So many people, to put pressure on us, are saying that the title is gone, we just have to think about working".

"We relaxed. Now we can go forward on all fronts, it all depends on us".

Napoli were looking to restore their one-point lead and bounce back after seeing a 10-match winning streak ended by last weekend's 4-2 home defeat by Roma, but couldn't find a way past top-four hopefuls Inter.

Dybala broke the deadlock in the 20th minute, curling a trademark free kick into the top corner.

"Gonzalo Higuain is doing well too, even if he didn't convert the penalty, as he provided the assist for Dybala's second goal".

Dybala has scored four goals from his last three matches.

Napoli, though, will regain the lead if they can beat Inter Milan in Sunday's late kickoff at the San Siro.

Napoli, which lost at home to Roma last weekend, nearly fell to a second successive defeat as Inter went closest to breaking the deadlock when Milan Skriniar headed a free kick off the right post early in the second half.

Napoli needed a win to really keep the pressure on Juventus at the top, but Lorenzo Insigne fired over after doing well to create space for a shot.

Fiorentina fans pay tribute to Davide Astori during their 1-0 Serie A win over Benevento.

The Portuguese worldwide directed Suso's cross into the bottom corner with only five seconds left of added time to draw Gennaro Gattuso's men within six points of fourth-placed Lazio in the race for the Champions League. Cagliari and Lazio tied 2-2 while Sassuolo and SPAL also settled for a 1-1 draw. The Italian worldwide striker met Felipe Anderson's cross with an outrageous backheeled lob to score his league-leading 24th goal of the campaign.
