|Massimiliano Allegri has urged Juventus to be wary of complacency after watching his side almost blow a two-goal lead in stoppage time during their 3-2 victory at Carpi.
Marco Borriello's early opener had earned a surprise lead for the struggling hosts, but Allegri's team rallied and appeared to be cruising to an easy win when Mario Mandzukic's double and Paul Pogba's second-half effort put them in control.
However, Leonardo Bonucci put the ball in his own net in the first minute of added time to give Carpi a vague sense of hope before Lorenzo Lollo spurned a golden chance to level the match with 90 seconds remaining.
Allergi was visibly furious on the touchline towards the end of the clash and afterwards he said: "We did well up until five minutes from the end. We need to let this be a lesson for us.
"It was important to win. The result strengthens our league position.
"Inter are having a fine campaign. We need to keep ticking along and making up ground," he said of the leaders, who are three points ahead of Juve prior to a match at home to Lazio later on Sunday.
