Danilo: 'Juventus gifted first half'

Danilo admits Juventus “cannot just gift the first half” to Olympique Lyonnais in a 1-0 Champions League defeat.

Lucas Tousart scored the only goal of the first leg in this Round of 16 tie, but even after pouring forward after the break, Juve still failed to get a shot on target.

“We cannot just gift the first half to the opposition in such an important tournament. We are aware that we did that and need to work harder,” Danilo told Sky Sport Italia.

“We must always play with the aggression that we showed in the second half, when we kept the ball practically the entire time and showed more courage, more initiative.

“Playing in front of our fans in the second leg, it is our obligation to press, push, score, win and qualify for the next stage of the competition.”

The second leg is in Turin on March 17.
