Could PSG encounter be decisive for Allegri’s future at Juventus?

Despite the club’s domestic run improving, Massimiliano Allegri’s position on the bench remains far from assured.

For example, Juventus are still seventh in the Serie A table, while their run in the Champions League has been a complete disaster.

While the Bianconeri have already been eliminated from Europe’s most prestigious tournament with four defeats in their five group stage exits, the final matchday will decide whether they reach the Europa League group stage or leave continental football altogether.

The Old Lady will host PSG on Wednesday and need to equal Maccabi Haifa’s result against Benfica to maintain third place in the group.

Reportedly, the final result could be decisive in determining the coach’s future at the club.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport via TuttoJuve, Allegri could be at risk of being sacked if his team fails to progress to the next stage of the Europa League.

As the source explains, the management will carefully assess the club’s situation during the long winter break, and the coach’s fate will be the first order of business.

In this sense, finishing bottom of the Champions League group (behind Maccabi) would hardly help Allgeri’s case.

So while qualifying for Europe’s second-tier competition would be nothing more than a consolation prize, it could make all the difference in the world for Max, especially if combined with a strong domestic finish before the break.

Juventus still have to play Inter, Hellas Verona and Lazio in their last three Serie A games of the year.
