Allegri: No reason to panic after draw

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri does not believe his side's draw with Bologna on Friday evening will come back to haunt the club in the Serie A title race.

The Bianconeri's 15-game winning streak came to an end with a goalless draw at the Stadio Renato Dall'Ara.

Juve had moved top of the standings following a win over Napoli last week, but the Partenopei could leapfrog them once again should they beat AC Milan on Monday.

Allegri, though, sees no reason to panic just yet, and is keen to shift focus onto Tuesday's Champions League clash against Bayern Munich.

"This draw doesn't change much as far as our season is concerned nor does it detract from what we have achieved so far this term," Allegri said after the game. "There's still a long away to go in the league and from now on there will be no easy matches.

"It was a tough game and unsurprisingly Bologna pressed high up the field, worked hard and played like a team in very good form.

"We would have liked to have won tonight to go four clear of Napoli but we're coming off the back of a mentally draining 15-match winning streak.

"If we did not have such good defenders, we probably would have conceded a goal. Games like this can swing on a single moment of quality which was unfortunately lacking for us tonight. Now it's time to think about Bayern."
