Pjanic: 'Juve must kill off games'

Miralem Pjanic admits Juventus “need to kill off games earlier” after another tricky 2-1 victory over Bologna, but praised the tactical system.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal was cancelled out by Danilo, but Pjanic made the most of a defensive error to secure the win.

“We knew full well it was going to be difficult, as we saw Bologna’s games. They are organised and caused us problems, but I still think we deserved the victory,” the midfielder told DAZN.

“We created many chances and should’ve scored one more goal to make it comfortable. It’s tough after a break for international duty, so we take the points.

“Perhaps we should’ve moved better to create space behind their midfielders. Soriano was marking me constantly, but as they started to tire, the spaces opened up a little bit more.

“We are playing very well with this new 4-3-1-2 formation, the team is enjoying its football, we just need to kill games off earlier so that we’re not under pressure at the end.

“I’ve been scoring a lot this season and hope to continue like this.”
