Antonio Conte enjoyed his side’s fifth consecutive win, even if he showed a bit of regret: “We’ve been heading for a draw, exactly like it occurred against Chievo, Cagliari and Genoa.
Today, it’s happened again. We’ve conceded a goal in their only chance. We must improve under this point of view. All lads are doing an extraordinary work, but if we could score more, I’d certainly feel easier. We’ve dominated and clinched a hard-fought victory, we could have the chance to go further the final 2-1 result and score more. When your rival is down, you need to seal the match.

Today we can say that we’ve accessed the Champions League from the main door. We’re still unbeaten, and we’re one point ahead of Milan. We must continue on this path and focus our attention on the game against Cesena, which will be fundamental. Del Piero? He’s definitely an added value. He knows that we need him, and he always help us.”
