Allegri Warns Juventus about AC Milan’s Threat

Massimiliano Allegri says that he is expecting a tough test from AC Milan as Juventus head into the game looking to maintain their winning run.

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri claimed that he is feeling confident about the title chances of his team in the 2016-17 season.
