Juventus coach Allegri defends tactics after Villarreal defeat

Juventus coach Max Allegri defended his tactics after their 3-0 home defeat to Villarreal.

Villarreal won the second-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie 3-0 in Turin to reach the quarterfinals 4-1 on aggregate.

“I would play it the same way, as the lads did well for 65 minutes. At a certain point, Villarreal put everyone in defence and only an incident could break that deadlock,” Allegri said.

“We have to accept this defeat, it’s ugly, but I cannot complain about the lads, as they played well.”

Allegri continued: “I wasn’t angry with anyone. I congratulate Emery, as he had the right approach, it was one of his usual games. Look, let’s move on, controversy won’t help anyone.

“This is football, sometimes they go in your favour, sometimes against you, it’s just about accepting that.”

Allegri added: “We tried to move the ball around, Villarreal had nine men behind the ball and didn’t even try to counter at one stage.

“We had our chances in the first half, they were aiming to either take this to extra time or make the most of incidents. We were naïve on the penalty, then rather than turning it around, we conceded another two goals and lost control of the match.”
