Sami Khedira, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Emre Can scored one goal each to lift Juventus to a 3-0 win over Sassuolo tonight in the Italian Lega Serie A.
A great performance by Juventus ended up giving the team a 3-0 win over Sassuolo in tonight’s Italian Lega Serie A fixture.
And for manager Massimiliano Allegri, the team left him delighted.
“We didn’t allow a goal and that was important, we created a lot. Dybala, Can and Bentancur entered well,” he told Sky Sports’ Gianluca Di Marzio.
“Khedira and Dybala can play together, their trequartista was making things hard for them. Both Bernardeschi and Dybala played well.”
“Khedira is a maestro at insertions, Bentancur can still improve. Szczesny made an extraordinary save where it was thought to be a penalty, but coming out of that 15′ we went strong,” he added.
“Then Bernardeschi started to play trequartista and after a while, they weren’t able to maintain. Against teams that are very close you need to expand the play, otherwise, you need players within the lines.”
“I changed the system to find a defensive, balanced asset and to have one more man in the midfield,” Allegri explained.
“In the first part of the season, Dybala together with Bonucci played more matches than everyone. Tonight he came on well, the bench serves to recharge yourself at a mental level.”
“The question is about characteristics. Paulo plays in the same role, but those around him change. Cristiano makes himself large, so you only need one in the box,” he commented.
“You could play with Dybala and Ronaldo in the attack, but then you lose determined situations. Cristiano played ten years with Benzema, Cristiano and Dybala need Mandzukic.”
