Allegri picks Christmas dinner over Roma-Milan clash

Having gone seven points clear at the top of Serie A, Juventus are not focusing too much on their title rivals says their head coach.

Massimiliano Allegri insists Juventus will not be watching Roma's clash with AC Milan on Monday as their attention remains on their own form - and a club Christmas dinner.

The Serie A champions extended their lead at the top of the table to seven points on Sunday as a Gonzalo Higuain brace helped to see off rivals Torino 3-1, before second plays third in Rome.

However, while head coach Allegri agreed a draw would be best for his side, star man Higuain insisted he is focused only on Juve's results.

"We are working well and we put in a great performance against an excellent team," Higuain told 'Sky Italia' after the derby.

"The important thing was that Juventus won. That's what we achieved, so it doesn't matter what the other results are behind us. That's their problem".

Allegri added to Mediaset Premium: "[Hoping for a draw] seems natural enough to me. We won't watch the game, though, as tomorrow is our Christmas dinner".

Juve face Roma at home in their next fixture on Saturday.
