After two goals conceded in five minutes, qualification to the next round is now complicated, but not impossible. In Turin, March 12, Juventus will try to overcome the two-goal deficit they endured in Spain.
After the game against Atletico, the players spoke about their desire to overcome the result.
“Incidents change the game and we were punished on set-pieces. We have to be more aware, stay calm and resist, because we can do it in Turin. There’s only three weeks left, we will win the return leg.”
“We knew it would be a difficult game and it did not go as we hoped, but fortunately there is a return fixture. We will definitely need to be better in the return leg, and not make today's mistakes. We have conceded two equal goals on rebounds and in these cases there can be a lack of attention, even if they are very strong on the inactive balls. The 2-0 is an important result for Atletico, but at our home ground we can play it and turn it over. We have 90 minutes to stay in the Champions League.”
