After the sensational 4-0 defeat to Chelsea in the 5th day match of the UEFA Champions League 2021/2022, the Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri spoke at a press conference, analyzing what went wrong in the match. The two clubs had already qualified for the round of 16 from the previous matches, and now, despite having the same points, Chelsea has every chance of winning the group due to the difference in goals.
Allegri said: "We had a good first half, then in the second half they continued to play and we took the second and third goals lightly. We are sorry to have conceded four goals, but the goal has been achieved and we need to focus on Saturday game (against Atalanta - ed.).
In the first leg we played a completely different game and we were much more attentive to the defensive phase in the 90 minutes. Tonight we did it for 45, then we gave up a bit and in fact we conceded goals. The team nevertheless hit the target two days early.
In some moments we lost too many balls, trying to verticalize immediately and instead we had to keep the ball a bit. On this we need to improve , because the opponent's strength is remarkable and in these matches you have to be good at slowing down.
In the first half I'm happy, then in the second we went into distrust and at 3-0 the game ended. I congratulated the boys for the pas wise of the turn. We had not become the strongest team in Europe after winning with Lazio, we need balance and we have to work on our limits.
Through these evenings we will improve."
