Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini has blamed ‘wastefulness’ for his sides goalless draw in Turin against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League.
Jorge Sampaoli’s men succeeded in frustrating their host for 90minutes deny having the rich talents of Gonzalo Higuain, Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro on show for the Old Lady.
Chiellini was left gutted after the game following his side’s failure to grab all three points from the current Europa League holders.
Speaking with Mediaset, he said: “We created a lot in the first half – it is a shame we were unable to score.
“We must do more and help our strikers with better service.
“The positive thing from the game is that we were compact and organised, so we didn’t allow Sevilla any chances.”
Dani Alves echoed the centre-back’s call for improvement, while also suggesting Juve were not strong enough mentally during Wednesday’s match.
He added: “In this competition you need to be strong psychologically and know how to make the most of every opportunity.
“We created several chances to score and played pretty well, but games don’t always go the way you want them to.”
