Too many missed opportunities as Conte describes

Sun 01 November 2020 | 20:25

Antonio Conte blames his players for the draw against Parma

They where down by two in a game that they had 26 attempts and they couldn’t get any result better than a 2-2 draw 

Here’s what Conte told

Sky Sport Italia

about the team: 

“It’s not the first game we dominated and yet almost lost. If you don’t score goals in football, you don’t win,

“Yet again, we missed a lot of chances, we made a lot of mistakes, and that’s not good. We need determination and precision. That’s what

Parma

did, as they scored twice with two opportunities.

“Seeing as it’s not the first time this has happened, we need to look at ourselves and increase that determination to make the most of our chances, otherwise we pay the price and today we are dealing with the consequences of those errors.

“We created the opportunities, but the finishing was the issue. It’s not just about the strikers, but also the wing-backs, the midfielders, the defenders. Attacking involves a lot of men, but for the umpteenth time, we weren’t precise or determined enough when we got into those scoring positions.

“It’s disappointing, as I couldn’t ask for more in terms of effort, but we need to do much better. Parma were perfect in their finishing, they had two chances and converted 100 per cent of them.

“If you don’t score goals, you don’t win. All too often recently, teams have a much higher goals-per-attempt ratio than we do. It happened with

Borussia Monchengladbach

too,

Shakhtar Donetsk

never had a shot on goal, but we still don’t win games that we dominate.”
