Massimiliano Allegri quizzed on Juventus future amid Arsenal and Chelsea links

Massimiliano Allegri quizzed on Juventus future amid Arsenal and Chelsea links

The 40-year-old goalkeeper was sent-off by referee Michael Oliver after his furious reaction to a last-minute penalty at the Bernabeu Stadium which dumped Juventus out of the Champions League.

The Italian, whose team suffered a heartbreaking exit to Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals last week, raised eyebrows prior to Sunday's win over Sampdoria by revealing he was unsure of what next season would hold.

Buffon was sent off for dissent by English referee Michael Oliver after he awarded Real Madrid a stoppage-time penalty which sent the Spaniards into the semi-finals.

"I think everyone saw our great commitment in the Champions League, even if we are disappointed by the elimination", Matuidi told Juventus TV.

Gianluigi Buffon's stock has dropped in recent weeks.

"Now we need to turn this rage and disappointment into positivity for this month and a half that remains, where we still have Scudetto and Italian Cup to win", said defender Giorgio Chiellini.

De Blasis eventually added a second goal for the hosts late in the game following a mistake by Freiburg keeper Alexander Schwolow. It was not related to the penalty decision but instead a protest against Bundesliga fixtures being played on Monday nights.

"I'm sure Oliver will have a great career in future, but he's too young to officiate a match like that".

Sampdoria were the last team to beat Juve in the top-flight in November and they started brightly at the Allianz Stadium as Fabio Quagliarella forced a smart save from Gianluigi Buffon - back in goal after his controversial sending off against Real on Wednesday.

However, they're still going strong domestically and are six points clear of Napoli in second spot.

It also finished goalless in the Rome derby as Lazio and Roma remained third and fourth in the table respectively.

Sassuolo went ahead for the first time through Politano's 64th-minute effort before Diabate struck again to rescue a much-needed point for Benevento.
