The Bianconeri came back with all three points in the bag from their trip to Sweden, recording their first win of the season.

Massimiliano Allegri insists Juventus “could’ve done better” in the Champions League group stage victory over Malmo on Tuesday.

Juventus headed into the match in desperate need of a win after failing to get a positive result in any of their opening three Serie A games.

The Old Lady managed to comfortably see off the Swedish champions, beating them 3-0 with the help of first-half goals from Alex Sandro, Paulo Dybala, and Alvaro Morata.

Juve, who parted ways with superstar Cristiano Ronaldo last month, resume Serie A action on the weekend by welcoming rivals Milan, and yesterday’s result would provide them a huge morale boost.

“When you play in the Champions League, there is always some tension in the build-up, especially when playing away from home and there was naturally a little more pressure after three Serie A games in which we didn’t do that well,” Allegri told Sport Mediaset.

“The lads played well on a technical level, we could’ve done better with some situations in the first half. We need to improve, but this doesn’t change the work we started on July 14.

“Results affect the way your work is judged, but we must do well to retain a balance both in defeat and above all in success.”
