To win matches, we need other things. We have a week to prepare, especially mentally. We know that 15 be there. Three points ahead, the situation will be different. We will find Sassuolo to have the technique and it is the same team as last year. We have to be good and have a different attitude.” On the possible arrivals during the week, Allegri did not comment: “At the moment we have to work with them and we have the possibility to start the tournament well, but we have to tackle and We get worse.” Among the new players, today “Bremer played very well, Gatti did well. We had to be more careful about inactive balls, but this defeat can only benefit us.” Little hope of seeing Morata in black and white: “I can’t say anything about Alvaro because he’s an Atletico player.”

Disappointed Danilo. “Apart from exhaustion after returning from America, we are working hard with two trainings a day. Nothing is taken for granted, but we also have to learn from teams like Atletico, Real and Barcelona. It is a pre-season game but we definitely have to do it. We are improving.. we must. We play .. with more attention .. to be worse in every ball because in the end we are Juventus .. we wear a heavy shirt in world football, we have history, we have to take responsibility .. me first. People expect a better season than last year’s” .
