There are some pretty angry fans out there today after yet another debacle in the once-fortress known as Juventus Stadium, that is quickly becoming known for its hospitality to visiting teams. It is unbelievable that we are almost into October, autumn is officially here and the Bianconeri are still looking for their first home win!

Speaking to the media after the game, manager Massimiliano Allegri said -

"I'm angry because we must improve quickly. At this moment we're shipping goals from the first opportunity that falls our opponents' way, you simply cannot concede from a corner with two minutes remaining.

"We keep trying to force the play on instances when we should be slowing things down. The quality of our overall play was decent tonight and we've got a team full of youngsters who need to develop.

"We need to work to improve the team and bring it up to a certain level. We're still inexperienced when it comes to reading the game in certain situations and we're currently paying the price with dropped points."

Defender Andrea Barzagli, who started this game, also spoke afterwards -

"We didn't see out the final stages well. It's a pity to concede from a corner on 93 minutes and a bitter pill to swallow.

"Our first-half performance was a little under par, but we fashioned several chances to score after the break. We lacked that little bit of spark, but we only have ourselves to blame for conceding from that corner."
