    "We could have won but we risked allowing them to break at the end," said the Juve boss after final whistle

    Massimiliano Allegri expressed his disappointment after Juventus squandered a two-goal lead at Atalanta and were made to settle for a point at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia on Sunday evening.

    "We could have won but we risked allowing them to break at the end," said Allegri at full time. "We shouldn’t have done that because the point we’ve earned tonight might be important in the long run."

    The Bianconeri coach was quick to praise Atalanta for an impressive display in the draw.

    "[Alejandro] Gomez produced a great ball for their second goal and [Bryan] Cristante got forward well," he said. "Our mistake was in giving the cross away, plus for the first goal we should have reacted better after [Gigi] Buffon’s save. It’s a shame because we’ve dropped two important points and deserved to win on the basis of our performance."

    Allegri also spoke about the episode that saw Mario Mandzukic’s goal chalked off after VAR was consulted.

    "I think VAR is an important tool, but it should only be used for objective situations, otherwise come March matches could end up lasting three or four hours," he said.
