Juventus created enough chances to win, says Barzagli

Andrea Barzagli believes Juventus were unlucky not  to claim all three points against Cagliari on Sunday.

Mirko Vucinic’s opener was cancelled out by Andrea Cossu’s strike early in the second half, but, after peppering the Cagliari goal, Juve could not find a winner.

“It’s a shame not to have won. We created many opportunities without being able to make the most of them,” said the central defender.

“Cagliari played a great game from a defensive point of view. We lacked a bit of attention in the first ten minutes of the second half, when we conceded and also took another risk. Then we got back to dictating the game and with a bit of luck we would have been able to win.”

Juve went clear at the top despite only drawing, but they face a difficult clash in Bergamo against Atalanta next Saturday.

“We’ll keep the morale and concentration levels high, because we have an important and difficult match coming up on Saturday.”
