Juventus Need To Improve, Reckons Pirlo After Forcing Verona To 1-1 Draw

Published 29 days ago - 1 views

Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo opines his team need to up the ante after the Italian champions forced Hellas Verona to 1-1 draw in a Serie A fixture at Allianz Stadium on Sunday.

At a post-match conference, the former Italy star midfielder agreed the visitors were difficult to play , heaping praise on Paulo Dybala and Dejan Kulusevski, whose leveller helped them to a share of the spoils.

“We had a too much of a wait-and-see approach in the first half, we were not very aggressive with the midfielders and yet the best opportunities had been ours. We reacted after their goal in the second half, but we don't need a slap in the face to wake us up - we have to start with more determination. We knew it would be more difficult than in Kiev, especially due to the intensity that Verona puts on the pitch. Kulusevski came on and did very well, Dybala worked hard for 90 minutes and it was a positive note, Arthur did well in his second match, as did the other midfielders, but we need to improve," Pirlo was quoted as saying by Juventus' official website.

Andrea Favilli gave the visitors the lead on 60 minutes, five minutes after coming close to breaking the dock through Zaccagni, who saw his shot palmed over the bar by Szczesny. 

Dejan Kulusevski scored for Juventus to restore parity on 78 minutes, with both team having goals ruled out, including Alvaro Morata's 45th effort for Juventus.

The result saw Juventus drop from fourth to fifth on the log with nine points from five matches into the new season, behind AC Milan, Napoli, Sassuolo and Inter Milan, with three points separating them from leaders, AC Milan, who have a game in hand.
