Massimiliano Allegri and Federico Bernardeschi commented on Juve's Super Cup display after being edged out 2-1 by Inter at San Siro.
“This was a tough match tonight. It was a good test for us to see where we're at. It's never nice to lose – even less so in the last second like that – but I think we played well. We fashioned several decent chances and limited Inter's chances too.
“Let's not forget we were playing the reigning champions and current league leaders. However, overall I think we played with good intensity throughout the match. We were just a little timid in the opening ten minutes or so, but afterwards we played with courage and worked really hard.
“We must use this defeat to get ourselves up for our next league game, against Udinese – a physical side who are hard to play against.”
“We're gutted because we were ten seconds away from having the chance to play for the trophy on penalties. We may have lost but I think we showed once again tonight that we're capable of giving anyone a game. We're Juventus and we must never forget that.
“We'll focus on the league now and we can't afford to make mistakes in the second half of the season as we dropped too many points in the first half of the campaign. We'll see where we are come May and take stock of the season then.”
