Make no mistake about it, full-backs are becoming arguably the most important players on the pitch in the modern game.

'I swapped my shirt with Mbappé because when I was young nobody wanted to do that with me and I hated it'.

Juve coach Allegri, whose side take on Monaco in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday, was in upbeat mood after the game but acknowledged his side lacked composure in their attacking play.

"The derby is a kind of match-point for us".

With three games remaining, Juve are eight points clear at the top of the table ahead of second-placed Napoli and 10 points in front of Roma who have a game in hand.

The Bianconeri could be the first Italian team to win six Serie A titles in a row and for the third season in a row they can win the title before the last 3 matchdays.

History proved that it's a bankrupt theory to believe tax cuts for the rich will lead to prosperity for the middle class. Now it just has to figure out how to get Congress on board - and the White House might need Democrats to do that.

"Now, we recover. We have to win against a Monaco team with great talent and quality". Cue "expensive donkey" Gonzalo Higuain popping up and beating Joe Hart right at the death.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who made a string of fine saves to thwart the French league leaders, could make way for number two Norberto Neto, with Allegri also likely to tinker with his four-man defence.

Juventus' Argentinian forward Gonzalo Gerardo Higuain vies with Torino's Italian defender Emiliano Moretti and Torino's Italian midfielder Marco Benassi during the Italian Serie A football match Juventus vs Torino FC at the Juventus stadium in Turin on May 6, 2017. We were a bit frantic, we needed more patience.

Although the odds are stacked in favour of Juventus, who have beaten Torino three times in succession since a rare defeat at the end of the 2015 season, Torino fans can realistically dream of an upset.

Belotti has been in scintillating form for Torino this season, scoring 25 goals in 31 appearances in Serie A, which has led to reported interest in the Italian from Manchester United, per ESPN. Massimiliano Allegri's side face crosstown rivals Torino on Saturday, and know that if AS Roma fail to match Juve's result when they take on AC Milan on Sunday, the title will be theirs.
