Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo came out after the defeat against Benevento in defense of his Brazilian midfielder Arthur, whose failure resulted in the goal that marked the triumph of Filippo Inzaghi’s team (0-1). Pirlo said about former Barcelona player Arthur: “He has made a mistake that is not his. I think he has not seen the rival in that area of the field. It was easier to unload the porter on the other side. It was a mistake of lightness and we have made so many ”.
Juventus is 10 points behind the leader, Inter with a pending match because on Saturday they did not play against Sassuolo due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the squad led by Antonio Conte. Milan is 2nd, with 4 points more than Pirlo and Atalanta.
“Despite everything, we have to continue to believe in the ‘scudetto’. It remains our goal. This afternoon we made the wrong decisions against an organized rival. We knew it was going to be very difficult, ”Pirlo said.
