Massimiliano Allegri: “We are disappointed and angry because we were left out of the Champions League”
The technical director of Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri, was disappointed by the elimination of the Italian team from the Champions League and emphasized that his managers must think about the future.
The Italian Massimiliano Allegri, coach of Juventus, declared this Tuesday after the defeat against Benfica (4-3) that leaves the Turin team out of the Champions League in the group stage that “we are disappointed and angry that we are out” and that the team needs to recover “mental energy”.
“We are disappointed and angry because we are out. Now we have to focus on the league and also on PSG because we still have to get the Europa League place,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia microphones at the end of the match.
An elimination that for Allegri “didn’t come tonight, it came before”, referring to the defeat against Israeli Maccabi Haifa two weeks ago that doomed Juventus’ aspirations to beat both Benfica and PSG.
“The first part of the season hasn’t been good for us. We made too many mistakes tonight but it’s useless to talk about it now,” he said.
Now, ‘Juve’ will face the French PSG, who are playing for first place in the group, to fight for third place, in the Europa League, with Maccabi Haifa, who will do the same against Benfica who are also playing for the first Market Stall. In the event that both are defeated, the goal difference (-3 for Juventus and -9 for Maccabi) will be decisive.
Juan Guillermo Cuadrado played 60 minutes in Juventus’ defeat against Benfica. The Colombian did not have his best performance, since in the 28th minute of the match the Colombian National Team player touched the ball with his hand inside the area, which produced a penalty in favor of the Portuguese team and eventually the partial 2-1 in favor of the ‘eagles’.
The ‘tricolor’ footballer only managed to dribble successfully once in the entire match, Cuadrado won four of the disputed duels, and managed to make a center and three long passes. Without a doubt, it was not the ideal night for former Deportivo Independiente Medellín, according to the ‘Sofa Score’ application, the man born in Necoclí, Antioquia, had a rating of 6.1.
How is Juventus doing in the local league?
Currently, Juventus is located in the eighth position in Serie A with 19 points, the product of five wins, four draws, and two losses.
When will ‘Juve’ play again?
The ‘Vecchia signora’ will face Lecce, as a visitor, next Saturday, October 29, starting at 11:00 AM (Colombian time), a game valid for the twelfth date of Series A.
