Massimiliano Allegri: 'Juventus deserved loss against Fiorentina'

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri admits that Fiorentina deserved their win in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final.

Massimiliano Allegri has claimed that his Juventus side can have no arguments after losing 2-1 to Fiorentina in the first leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final.

A brace from Mohamed Salah earned the Viola a crucial victory in Turin, and Allegri was unable to hide his disappointment with how the Egyptian broke the deadlock with a stunning run through the heart of the Juventus defence.

"We knew Fiorentina were in fine form and I would say it was a good first half from both teams," the Juventus boss told reporters.

"After the break we lost organisation for about 10 minutes, allowing them two or three chances and conceded on the third. We had opportunities to equalise, but Fiorentina played better than we did and deserved to win.

"We are aware it won't be easy because Fiorentina are in great form and play very good football but we conceded one goal with a man who ran 70 metres with the ball at his feet. That is not a tactical issue."

Fiorentina will host the second leg on April 7.
