Rome, April 23 (IANS) AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri refused to shelve his side's Italian Serie A football title dreams after being held to a 1-1 draw by Bologna at home.
The Rossoneri were a point behind Serie A leaders Juventus going into the weekend and are now on level terms after scraping a stoppage-time 1-1 draw with Bologna Sunday.
"We had to get the points this afternoon," Allegri was quoted as saying by Xinhua. "In the second half the team believed and created many chances. Unfortunately we were unable to win."
"If Juventus win tonight against Roma, then they have a great chance of winning the Scudetto.
"Do Milan deserve the title? If we finish above Juve, then yes. If Juventus finish the season in front then they'll deserve it, but nothing is decided yet.
"Don't forget not even second place is mathematically secure either. Now we have to win the next game," he added.
Juventus took control of the Serie A title race with a 4-0 victory over Roma.
It was Juve's sixth win in a row and opened up a three-point lead at the top with five games left in the season.
