With eight minutes remaining, substitute El Fardou Ben tried to grab a point for Olympiakos but his header hit the bar.
Juventus coach Allegri appeared relieved that his team was not punished for a lapse in concentration early in the second half.
"We could have concluded the game earlier," Allegri said. "In the second half, we played the first 20 minutes the wrong way. But in Europe, it's never easy to win."
Juventus players appeared relaxed for the encounter. Goalkeeping great Gianluigi Buffon received an award from the Greek club before the match, while striker Gonzalo Higuain posed with young members of Olympiakos' staff to take selfies.
Olympiakos defender Leonardo Koutris said his team's effort was not enough to threaten Juventus' dominance, as the Greek champion finished with just one point from six matches.
"Juventus is a very powerful team. There's such a small margin of opportunity against teams like that," Koutris said, as home fans continued to sing in support after the game.
"What we wanted was to go out in front of our supporters with our heads held high."
Group winner Barcelona beat Sporting Lisbon 2-0.
