Morata: 'Roberto among the best'

Alvaro Morata said Olympiacos goalkeeper Roberto’s remarkable performance was “not an excuse” for Juventus.

The ex-Real Madrid striker had comfortably the best chances to score in Athens, but was denied on several occasions by Roberto and the woodwork.

“We could’ve won this game, even if we played in a difficult arena against one of the best goalkeepers in the world,” Morata told Sky Sport Italia.

“I have to work harder to score goals, because the fact Roberto had a great performance was not an excuse.”

The Bianconeri were beaten 1-0 by Olympiacos, who now lead the Champions League group on a par with Atletico Madrid.
