Allegri pleased with Juventus progress

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri believes his side are "getting there" after they extended their unbeaten run to seven matches following Sunday's 1-0 over Roma.

The Old Lady are 7/2 to win the Serie A title after a slow start to the campaign, but they are starting to find their feet ahead of a busy period of the season.

Kean goal the difference

Moise Kean's 16th-minute strike was enough for Juventus to secure all three points, but the Everton loanee knew very little about the goal.

Rodrigo Bentancur's effort inadvertently came off his head, and Roma failed to find a way back into the game, with Jordan Veretout seeing his penalty saved by Wojciech Szczesny after Tammy Abraham was brought down.

Clean sheet delights Allegri

Defeats to Empoli and Napoli cost Juve dear, but Allegri is looking forward with optimism.

He told DAZN: "I like 1-0, as it's a good result, especially as we kept another clean sheet.

"We are starting to slow the game down at the right time, but we need to step up the pace too when it's required. I won't lie, I probably did damage too at the start with some of my choices; I had to get to know some players and their characteristics, but we're getting there.

"We need to improve in the final third, the timing and movement, but we'll get there."

Juventus are back in action on Wednesday when they face Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League, before they then face reigning Serie A champions Inter Milan at the weekend.
