Sun 04 April 2021 | 19:27

Juve's Coach, Andrea Pirlo confessed that his side "are making too many horizontal passes and that makes us predictable" after a 2-2 tie against Torino in the Derby della Mole.

The Bianconeri

struggled to win but the end result was a 2-2 draw, however, after their last poor form, a point against a team in the drop zone battle is not something to be happy about.

“We had started well, taken the lead, and that’s the most difficult thing against teams that defend,”

Pirlo explained to



In this match, like the 1-0 home loss against Benevento, Juve put themselves in trouble after Dejan Kulusevski gave a goal away with a back pass.

“As usual, we make life complicated for ourselves. We had hoped for a different second half, but we made that error straight away and had to get back into it.

“The error was similar to the one we conceded against Lazio, unfortunately, these are happening a bit too often and we have these lapses in concentration.

“After the second goal, we got the game back on track, hitting the woodwork and that chance with Cristiano."

Juve currently stands 4th on the table, at the same level with Napoli.

“We’re dropping a lot of points along the way so far this season and naturally we’ve got to do better.”


was questioned that what he will concentrate on now that his team have a full week to get ready for the future matches?

“We have to work on many football principles, such as positions and movements, finding more movement between the lines, especially against teams that defend deep.

“At the moment, we are making too many horizontal passes and that makes us predictable.”
