Lopez: 'Two points dropped'

Brescia coach Diego Lopez says his side "dropped two points rather than gained one" following their 1-1 draw against Udinese.

Lopez was seconds away from a winning start on the Brescia bench, before Rodrigo De Paul scored for the Zebrette with seconds remaining.

“Udinese did better in the first half, we knew we were up against a side with physicality,” said Lopez in his post-game press conference.

“In the second half we managed to score and we should’ve closed the game out. You have to be concentrated; it’s a pity, especially for morale.

“In the end we did everything to win the match.”

Brescia are second from bottom in the table and Lopez says he needs time to mould the side in his image.

“We will try to give our best, and I don’t know how much time it will take to see my way of working.

“I believe that with the availability of the boys and with the results, it can be done. It’s not easy to communicate in just a few days.

“We need a full week in which to work.”

De Paul equalised with seconds remaining, and Lopez believes his side were harshly done by.

“We know they are two points lost, for how the game went. Matches are won and lost if you don’t score.”
