AC Milan's Massimiliano Allegri Wants Scudetto Sealed Against Roma

Coach says it's time to celebrate the title in Rome, and he is so confident his side can do it the whole squad has been called for the trip
Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri is ready to celebrate a Scudetto-winning outcome when his side take on Roma on Saturday in a game which could deliver a title number 19.

The Rossoneri are eight points above Inter, and need only a draw from their trip to the Stadio Olimpico to finish the season in style early and end all debate surrounding the Tricolore.

He has called up all of his squad players, including injured and suspended ones, with only Marek Jankulovski staying behind..

"Everyone is going to Rome because I feel it's right to celebrate if needs be and we want to do it all together," he told the press.

"Then it's normal for some players to watch the game from the stands, they will have to accept this."

Despite the majority of the focus being on Roma, Allegri says his squad could see some changes to accomodate the Coppa Italia semi-final return against Palermo on Tuesday, with a 2-2 first-leg result leaving the tie in the balance.

"We are thinking about Tuesday and the midfield for example will be conditioned with Palermo in mind," he said.

"We have been training well all week knowing the win over Bologna allowed us to maintain our advantage.

"Now we need a point and we want to get it. Tuesday's game is also important as we want to reach the final of the Coppa Italia."

On Roma the coach was cautious, knowing the party could well be spoiled, and he added: "It will be a difficult game as they want to reach the Champions League. Lazio's loss [to Juventus] also sees them [Roma] full of motivation."

However, Daniele De Rossi and Simone Perrotta are missing. Both have three-game bans which the club has appealed following their sendings-off in the 3-2 win over Bari.

"Those who will replace them will be fired up and have all the motivation," added Allegri.

If they lose to Roma, Milan can still be champions on Sunday if Inter fail to beat Fiorentina.
