Allegri: 'I don’t want to judge the referee'
Juve boss believes his side deserved to go to extra time against Real Madrid (4-3 on agg.) and refuses to analyse the episode which gave Los Blancos a winning penalty.
“I don’t want to judge what the referee did.
“I feel bad for the lads, who did well in Turin for 60 minutes and didn’t score the goals they did tonight. The penalty tonight was basically the reverse of what happened on Juan Cuadrado in the first leg… I said even at the time that incident would decide qualification.
“We deserved at least to go to extra time, as we had two substitutes left and they could give an important push in that extra half-hour with Real Madrid tiring.
“Either I had to make changes on the hour mark and go hell for leather, or I wait until extra time and have enough time to get the situation sorted out. We weren’t even really at risk late on in the game.
“Now we have to focus on the Scudetto and taking that home. We have to be stronger than these things and let them fortify us."
