Max Allegri told off Juventus for their last-gasp defeat to Genoa, which put Roma on a par with the Serie A leaders.

“We played on a simply awful pitch. You cannot play football on that field. Secondly, the only thing my team got was in the final 20 seconds,” he told Sky Sport Italia after the 1-0 result at Marassi.

“I have said before that Scudetti are also earned with draws. We fought hard and tried everything to win, but we can’t concede right at the death. To win the title you don’t need 108 points, but just one more than the team in second place.

“Do everything to win, but if you hit the woodwork, see some great saves and are 30 seconds from the end, try not to lose.

“We leave here with regrets, as we were six against two on that counter and conceded a goal. That has to make us think and improve in terms of maturity.”

Juve have a poor away record recently, drawing 1-1 at Sassuolo, losing at Genoa and defeated 1-0 in both Champions League games outside Turin.

“I am not worried, despite the statistics. Against Sassuolo we did everything possible and a draw can happen, tonight we did everything and conceded right at the end.

“We had a good advantage of three points, especially as we have the head-to-head in our favour, so we should’ve controlled that advantage better.

“Just as it was an important point against Sassuolo, we should’ve picked up an important point here. When Genoa had the ball, we should’ve focused on defending, not trying to create another chance to go forward. I hope this can serve as a lesson for the future, as it’s practically impossible to win every game, so every point counts.”
