Juventus boss Max Allegri believes the Bianconeri were “too hasty” in their 2-1 win over Benevento.

Juve went behind to Amato Ciciretti’s free kick but fought back with goals from Gonzalo Higuain and Juan Cuadrado to secure a valuable victory.

“I have to compliment the lads today, because we went behind to the only shot on goal of the first half. It seemed like a cursed game, but we needed to be calm, sharp and not too hasty,” Allegri told Mediaset Premium.

“After going 2-1 up, we continued to run risks on a few corners and counter-attacks. It was not easy today, because after turning it around, we thought it might be over. These games are always complicated.

“Dybala had a good game. He could’ve scored more goals in his 17 competitive matches so far this season, but just needs to rediscover his sharpness and form.

“Marchisio did well and I didn’t expect him to last the whole match, but I’m happy with his performance.

“Napoli are doing extraordinary things, as are Inter and Roma. Winning games is never easy or to be taken for granted.

“The Serie A season is 38 rounds and I always say we need to go at cruising speed, because too many bumps and waves make you feel ill.

“This is a great side and will fight to the end.”
