"It was a fair result," Allegri said.
"We played badly in the first half.
We gave the ball away and also

Our difficulties stemmed from the
fact that we had three defenders and

"We improved in the second half,

Juventus was looking for its fourth
consecutive victory but was ham-

of Paul Pogba.
The defending champions created
