Juventus coach Max Allegri says they meet Roma today in top shape.
However, Allegri will delay naming his starting XI as he considers how to approach the game.
“Clear ideas are big words,” Allegri said at a press conference. “Today, for the first time, I see the whole team together.
“The Europeans returned between Wednesday and Thursday, while the South Americans arrived yesterday. Let’s see what we’ll do. I’ll decide in the morning.
“Juventus vs. Roma is always a great match where there has often been controversy. There’s [Jose] Mourinho, who has given them character. They are ahead of us, and we must score points to not fall behind the best in the championship.
“We need to prepare well and turn the switch back on immediately after the break.”
Allegri says he’s looking forward to facing Jose Mourinho again.
“Mourinho is a coach who has won a lot and I respect him a lot,” Allegri added. “It’s in his character to, every now and then, do like he did with Manchester a few years ago.
“Moreover, that gesture of the ears with Manchester United he did it at the end of Juventus’ most beautiful games. In the end, nobody remembers it because we lost.
“It pleases me to have a coach of his value back in Italy.”
