Pescara co-Coach Bruno Nobili blamed the referee for their slender 2-1 defeat. “The error helped Juventus.”
The Delfini are bottom of the table, but were only beaten 2-1 late on by the Serie A leaders, as Mirko Vucinic broke the deadlock with a penalty. Giuseppe Rizzo was sent off in the same incident.
“We played well, much better compared to other recent outings,” said Nobili, who shares the bench with Cristian Bucchi.
“The penalty was decisive, but the red card was totally unnecessary. Plus it all came about from a Juve free kick that should’ve been in our favour. The error helped Juventus.”
Ivan Pelizzoli performed a series of desperate saves in Turin to keep the scoreline down.
“We knew how good he was. We are well aware that we have two great goalkeepers to count on. Mattia Perin is injured and left the place to Pelizzoli.”
