AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri wants his team to stay focused despite moving a step closer to the Serie A title with a win over Brescia.

Although Inter Milan also won on Saturday, Napoli lost at Palermo making AC Milan’s 1-0 win all the more important.

Allegri’s team has an eight-point gap on Inter with four games remaining, but the boss wants his team to remain focused.

“Another four points would secure the Scudetto. Now, we have to focus on having a relaxing Easter break and from Wednesday we’ll start thinking about Bologna, another difficult game seeing as they’re getting sucked back into the relegation battle,” Allegri said.

“We’re not planning any title celebrations right now. We just need to relax over Easter.”

Milan’s superior head-to-head record over Inter and Napoli this season means even if they finish level on points, the title would be theirs.

They had to wait until the 82nd minute for Robinho to find the net at Brescia and Allegri said his team deserved to win.

“We had two or three risky situations with Brescia, as unfortunately we didn’t make our first-half domination count,” Allegri said.

“It’s only natural to have a little fatigue as we played in the Coppa Italia on Wednesday evening, but the lads held out well.”

“The team overall created plenty of scoring opportunities and deserved the victory.”

Midfielder Gennaro Gattuso was a late withdrawal after suffering a muscle injury in the warm-up.
