Get feet on the ground Juve, orders Allegri

MILAN: Coach Massimiliano Allegri ordered Juventus to get their feet on the ground after a chastening 2-1 ‘Derby d’Italia’ defeat to Inter Milan came hot on the heels of a stale Champions League draw with Sevilla. Juventus travelled to the San Siro looking to make amends after a goalless stalemate against the Europa League champions in Turin today.

But the Bianconeri were left scratching their heads after Mauro Icardi levelled Stephan Lichsteiner’s 66th minute opener only two minutes later, beating Gianluigi Buff on for the seventh time in their past eight meetings.

Allegri replaced misfiring striker Mario Mandzukic with Argentinian Gonzalo Higuain, but twelve minutes from time Icardi turned provider for Croatia star Ivan Perisic to head a superb winner past Buff on and secure a morale-boosting win for Inter’s embattled Dutch coach Frank De Boer.
