Chievo Coach Mimmo Di Carlo just had to shrug and accept “Juventus proved they were superior.”
The Flying Donkeys frustrated Juve in Turin, but after an hour were broken by a Fabio Quagliarella brace in this 2-0 result.
“Juventus proved they were superior. We tried to contain them, often pretty well, but then they stepped up a gear and deserved the victory.
“We also should’ve done better but, despite last week’s defeat to Lazio, my team went out there in a solid and united way.”
It would’ve been a much harsher scoreline without the sterling efforts of Chievo goalkeeper Stefano Sorrentino.
“Tonight Stefano showed his abilities. He is a great goalkeeper,” continued Di Carlo.
“We must be quicker and more intense as a team, because it’s the only way to do well. It is a difficult fixture list, as we faced Lazio and Juventus, then Inter await us.”
