Reflecting on Wednesday’s events at Juventus Stadium, Massimiliano Allegri began:

“Every aspect of our game is in great shape at the moment. We played very well against what is a very good Inter side. We were solid defensively and perhaps we could have been better at keeping the ball and building our attacks from deep. The boys have put smiles on the faces of everyone at the club but we are not in the final yet. We must not rest on our laurels and think too much about the first half of the season. While we won nine in a row before Christmas, we earned too few points before that run. It will take real quality to win what is now effectively a 17-game championship. When you are in the midst of a winning streak you need to stay focused, keep yourself grounded, put in the same hard work in training and ensure you don’t lose the solidity that got you in that position in the first place”.

“The most important thing is to stay level-headed and keep in mind that we haven’t achieved anything yet. We have a tough run of fixtures ahead and I know I can swap a few players in and out and still be sure that the quality of our performances won’t drop off. We’ve made ourselves firm favourites to reach the final but there are still another 90 minutes to be played at the San Siro. It isn’t over yet.”

“Alvaro’s goals are always important and he has been doing well recently even if he hasn’t been finding the net. He showed great technique and composure to break the deadlock tonight, particularly for his second strike, which was superb. Forwards’ heads can drop when they are not scoring regularly but they don’t stop being good players in the space of a month or so. Asamoah was brilliant tonight in all aspects of his play. When the team are in great form, every team selection can be difficult and it’s never easy leaving the other guys out of the side. The further we go in the cups though, the more playing time there will be for everyone.”

"Bayern Munich? We’ve got a good chance of qualifying, we’ll need a touch of luck, as you do in any competition, but we’ll ensure we will have prepared for the match in the best possible way. It will be a yardstick to judge how far we have come together. Juve must always play to win.”
