When Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was greeted with a hail of eggs and spat at on his first day at work he could not have imagined he would lead them to the brink of an unprecedented treble of titles in his first season.A former coach of Juventus' detested rivals AC Milan, Allegri initially refrained from tinkering too much with Conte's side, which had won three straight scudettos but failed to make much of an impact in Europe's elite club competition.Whether it works against a Barca attack featuring Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez remains to be seen but the way Juve's defense dealt with Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in the semifinals was impressive.At Milan he suffered Champions League elimination at Barca's hands in two successive seasons, losing in the quarterfinals in 2011-12 and the round of 16 a year later.
