Dybala picked up a bruised collateral bone. McKennie had a little problem yesterday and today he was affected by the heel but hopefully nothing serious.

We controlled the game in a bad way once we took the lead.

It was important to look at ourselves, game after game, because it was important to give continuity, with a win tonight, because otherwise the game we played on Wednesday at San Siro was useless.

It was a difficult game, badly managed after our lead, with a bit too much carelessness, then we were forced to advance our centre of gravity, a bit more disorderly, but the important thing was to win the game, with a bit of desire, a bit of character.

When you face these great teams your motivation rises, your concentration also, the points at stake begin to be important. We're used to it, we have a lot of champions who are ready for these big challenges, so now we're preparing for Wednesday's Coppa Italia match.

We are Juventus, we have the pressure to win every game, so as I said last week we mustn't care about the standings at the moment because we are a bit far away, but it is important to focus on ourselves. Then in a few months we'll see where we are.

We lost some players, but we recovered some of them, especially on the physical level, and that was important for the development of the matches.

In the match against Torino, especially the second half, we gained strength, a great desire to react, because we know that if we don't face every match with the utmost concentration then we'll make bad impressions.

Demiral said he wanted to see the goal again because he likes to point out his own mistakes and the mistakes of others, so we'll evaluate it together tomorrow.

Hard wins? This is the DNA of Juventus and must always be within the team. If you want to win games you can play well, you can play badly, but you have to have that desire until the last minute.
