Allegri downplays the decisiveness of match against Roma

While speaking at his press conference this morning, Juventus manager Max Allegri was asked about the match against Roma – which takes place on 5 October in Turin:

“That (match) with Roma will certainly be a match of great appeal, but it won’t be decisive – the season is very long. For now, we’re thinking of Atalanta and then Atletico. From Thursday on, we’ll think about Roma.”
