Pastore: 'Hugely disappointing'

Javier Pastore is “hugely disappointed” at defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach, as Roma wasted numerous chances and conceded at the death.

“It’s hugely disappointing, as we played very well in the second half, created so many chances and would’ve been alright with a point considering the standings,” Pastore told Sky Sport Italia after the 2-1 Europa League defeat.

“We made a few mistakes when we were going clear on the counter, perhaps there was some fatigue as we played a lot of games in a row, but there can be no excuses.”

The group is now extremely tight, as Istanbul Basaksehir have seven points, Roma and Gladbach five, with Wolfsberg on four.

The Giallorossi’s next game is a trip to Istanbul on November 28, but they conclude at home to Wolfsberg, whereas the Turks end their group stage at Borussia-Park.

“We know that we need a great performance in Istanbul, with determination and hunger. We did that tonight, it’s just a shame we conceded at the last minute.”
