Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin admitted his side ‘didn’t look like scoring a goal’ against Juventus on Tuesday.
Atleti led Juve 2-0 in their Champions League last-16 tie, but a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick overturned the deficit to send the Bianconeri into the quarter-finals.
“We couldn’t find a way to hurt them,” Godin, who will reportedly join Inter this summer, said after the game.
“We defended but conceded goals. We didn’t look like scoring a goal, which was needed for the tie.
“We weren’t surprised by Juve at all. We knew it’d be a difficult match, against tough opponents who would play.
“They defended well and attacked well. They were careful and smart, while we couldn’t find the goal we needed.
“We’ll keep going until the end of the season, giving everything like always. We’re the ones who suffer the most and regret this result.
“We wanted to go through. Now we must pick ourselves back up and keep fighting until the end like always.”
