Ficcadenti rues 'impossible' miss

Massimo Ficcadenti is disappointed to only hold Juventus to a draw, especially after Emanuele Giaccherini's “impossible” miss.

“Once Juve went down to 10 men, the game changed,” said the Coach after tonight's 2-2 thriller.

“When we were trailing 2-0 it was possible to lose concentration, but instead we did well to get ourselves back into the game and then Marco Parolo got the equaliser.

“We take this point, but obviously considering the way the match was panning out, we hoped to take home the victory.”

Cesena had the chance to equalise in the first half, but Giaccherini was guilty of the miss of the season, firing wide of an open goal from six yards.

“It seemed impossible to miss, but he managed it!” laughed Ficcadenti. “We were 1-0 down, it probably would've been a different game.

“In any case, he did well to keep his head on the match, because a mistake like that can affect your confidence.”
