Allegri happy with Milan`s draw with Roma
Milan: AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri was satisfied with his side`s 2-2 draw with Roma at home Monday.
Mattia Destro and Kevin Strootman had twice put the visitors ahead, and Cristian Zapata and Sulley Muntari scored to help Milan equalise twice.
"It was an entertaining game for the spectators, a little less for us. We knew Roma were strong in space, but there were incidents we should`ve avoided," Xinhua quoted Allegri as saying.
"In the end, it`s a good result, as we used up so much physical and psychological energy Wednesday for the Champions League and could`ve paid for that."
"We could`ve done more when on 1-1, but made the wrong decisions on passes between the lines," he said.
He suggested Alessandro Matri will play more time to partner Mario Balotelli in the future.
"Obviously with another striker near him (Balotelli), he can get away from the markers a little more. He did well tonight and had a great opportunity at the end to win it," he said.
"Balotelli has always done better alongside Matri than on his own, such as against Napoli even though we lost. It`s normal that with Matri in the box to draw away defenders, it gives Balotelli more space to shoot from distance," he said.
