‘We could’ve won,’ – Inzaghi says after a draw with Juve

Sat 28 November 2020 | 20:07

Benevento coach, Filippo Inzaghi, has hailed his team for the 1-1 tie with Juventus. He says: ‘We could have won it if we were a bit smarter on the counter.’

The Stregoni have worked their way up by their thumping five defeats in all matches, following their 1-0 victory over Fiorentina and today’s 1-1 draw against

Juventus

.

Alvaro Morata

, Juve striker, scored the opener.

Gaetano Letizia

snatched a point by running the goalkeeper ragged.

A few months ago we were fighting on muddy pitches in Serie B, now we are holding Juventus, and we could even have won it if we’d been a bit smarter on the counter

.

These lads deserve to enjoy this evening, they’ve done so well over the last 18 months. When you get a result against Juventus, one of the best teams in Europe, you need everything to go your way,

” Inzaghi told Sky Sport Italia.

“We were short-staffed, as Tuia was out for a month with a fractured cheekbone, Maggio grit his teeth like a real captain to play as long as he could. I had no more players left, but the lads gave their all

and achieved something remarkable

.

You would think avoiding defeat to Juventus was practically impossible, but seeing them train over the last few days, I had an inkling we could do it. They will enjoy this, because it’s the first time

<em>

Benevento

<em>

have got a result against Juventus

.”

Notwithstanding

Benevento

’s loss to Inter, Napoli, and Roma, they have always played with such determination and a ploy.

I went back to Lega Pro, I earned experience in Serie C, Serie B, I wanted to learn and start all over again. We lost a promotion play-off with Cittadella just over a year ago and were so downhearted, but then we broke all Serie B records

.

Tonight seeing my lads so proud and the President so pleased with them, it’s very satisfying
