Napoli the ones to chase - Allegri

Result: Juventus restrict Napoli's Serie A title lead to one point with win over Genoa Juve turn up heat on Napoli as Costa strike sees off stubborn Genoa
Melba Vasquez | 23 January, 2018, 13:42

Veteran goalkeeper Buffon has started just two Serie A matches since October due to a calf problem, but Szczesny has been a capable back-up with 10 clean sheets in 15 appearances in all competitions.

JUVENTUS will be hoping to pile the pressure on league leaders Napoli with a win against Genoa.

That game appears too early for Buffon, but the 39-year-old will soon be back between the posts.

"Buffon will return in the week, he's ready to do so and so are others", Allegri told Premium Sport.

Allegri added that Juve will continue to monitor Paulo Dybala (thigh), while Juan Cuadrado (groin) and Benedikt Howedes (thigh) remain absent. "He's the starter, even if Szczesny is having an impressive season".

Maurizio Sarri's side have 54 points after 21 games to stay one point ahead of Juventus.

One piece of real quality from Brazilian striker Douglas Costa during the first half gave Juventus a laboured 1-0 victory over lowly Genoa.

"It's a attractive duel at the moment. There are governing bodies who can respond to this, I don't understand how the calendar works".

Nevertheless, it is not performances that win teams the Scudetto; it is results and as the reigning champions of Italy, Juve found a way to win when not performing at their best. "It was important to win, and not to lose our winning habit after the break, and stay in the wake of Napoli".

"Napoli are like a hare, so we just have to stay in their slipstream and wait for our chance".

"Our aim was to get the three points, though - the lads knew that and they all worked hard to that end".
