Szczesny: 'Juve needed patience'

Wojciech Szczesny said Juventus “needed a lot of patience to break Lokomotiv Moscow down,” but is confident they were in control.

The Russians took the lead after 30 minutes with a classic counter-attack, but Paulo Dybala’s brace late on turned it around for 2-1.

“It was a struggle to get the result, but we controlled the game for 90 minutes and needed a lot of patience to break them down, as they were very organised and put a solid wall back there,” the goalkeeper told Sky Sport Italia.

“A great left-foot shot from Dybala made the difference. Lokomotiv were clammed up in defence and we had to move the ball from left to right and back again to open up some spaces.

“We must continue being protagonists in Serie A too and that means getting three points against Lecce this weekend.”
