Departing Allegri set for Turin farewell against Atalanta

Massimiliano Allegri will oversee his final game as Juventus coach at the club's Allianz Stadium on Sunday against Atalanta as the curtain comes down on his trophy-laden career with the Serie A giants.

Gian Piero Gasperini's men slumped to a 2-0 defeat to Lazio in Rome this week which ended their 12-match unbeaten run.

Portuguese star Ronaldo has two games left to try to finish top scorer in his first season in Serie A as he is five behind Sampdoria's Fabio Quagliarella.

Roma head to Sassuolo in turmoil after the news that captain Daniele De Rossi will leave after 18 years after the club decided not to renew his contract.

"Since De Rossi was our captain, a person in our history, perhaps his departure had to be handled differently so he could think it through better," said Ranieri, who replaced sacked Euesbio Di Francesco last March.

De Rossi had made 615 appearances and scored 63 goals for Roma in all competitions, but had never lifted the Serie A title, despite two Coppa Italia trophies.
