Post Match Comments:


“For 27 minutes the team played very well, even if early on we allowed Matteo Politano a shot on goal, which made us realise we needed to defend more carefully. As we were 3-0 up, I think we all should’ve defended better, as the game could’ve lasted 45 minutes and instead it was in the balance for 96 minutes. Paulo Dybala had a good game and was improving at the end of the second half. The fact we hear every day that Juventus are super strong and will no doubt win the Scudetto, Champions League and any other trophy is damaging. It makes us lose sight of the reality of these situations. We conceded two goals from corners this season already and that is too many. There are moments in the game when we are in our own half and must defend well, without letting the opposition get away from us. We all have to work hard and cannot just take it for granted that the three at the back will take care of things. The important thing is that Juventus win the Scudetto, because over the last three years the Capocannoniere hasn’t won the Scudetto.”



“I’ve always been relaxed. The important thing is for the team to win. Fortunately I scored, we had a good overall performance and we won. These are the first few games together, we have a long time to improve our understanding on the pitch, but I already get on very well with Dybala. I am happy to be here. Sassuolo are a talented squad and will create problems for everyone. It was a difficult match, we must continue along this path and in three days there is Sevilla. The Champions League is the most wonderful competition, so we need to prepare well and try to win.”
