Inter takes down champion Juventus
After 4 games only, Internazionale inflicted Juventus Turin their first loss of the season in a comeback victory. Juventus led with only 25 minutes left but was unable to preserve the advantage. For Inter, the win brings some light in somewhat difficult times highlighted by the shocking home defeat 2-0 against unknown team at the European stage Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
Coach Juventus, Allegri comments the loss:
“Inter played well, but we failed to maintain our concentration tonight. We lost possession too easily and let them counter-attack too often. They did well to create chances, but as soon as we took the lead we needed to show that savvy in order to bring home the three points.”
“Our problem tonight primarily lay in the fact that we made too many mistakes and rushed things when we should have been controlling possession better.”
“We now have a run of important matches and we need to return to winning ways, remembering that we have to do the business on the pitch in order to secure the results we want.
“Today’s defeat isn’t a tragedy and could actually be a blessing in disguise if we react in a sufficiently mature manner.
