He wants to try again, Massimiliano Allegri. And his personal performance against Milan is to be applauded: 20 career games, 13 victories and just five defeats. Furthermore, almost all of the thuds came when he was still coaching Cagliari, while riding Juventus he received so many joys. The only two sorrows date back to 2016, when he lost in the championship at San Siro due to the Eurogol of Locatelli, now Juventus, and in Doha he succumbed to penalties in the Italian Cup final. Two defeats, then a very long streak: this season’s first leg draw came after eight consecutive wins against his old team. The coach will again be an opponent at La Scala del Calcio, where in four years he won his first trophies on the bench with the 2010/2011 championship and the Italian Super Cup in 2011. Sunday evening he will have to put his emotions aside and try to throw even higher his Juve. The Champions area is within reach at only one point, even if Atalanta have a game to recover, and above all they have been approached after a positive trend that began two months ago, with the last defeat in the league against the Orobics. last November 27. In the formation that Allegri has in mind there will be a couple of important returns compared to the success against Udinese: Chiellini returns from the first minute to support De Ligt in defense, in midfield Locatelli should find space together with Bentancur, in attack it will again be Dybala a support Morata as an offensive terminal. Then there is a great doubt in the band, with Bernardeschi who paws after having disposed of the muscular problems and who aims to send Kulusevski back to the bench. Allegri renews his confidence in McKennie: the American is among the most in-form Bianconeri, has just returned from two goals in a row and wants to rejoice again at San Siro after signing the momentary advantage in the Super Cup against Inter.
