Andrea Pirlo: It was a nightmare but we got back on track, now we will focus on the return

Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo thought that after just 61 seconds against Porto, the Serie A side had failed to recover from conceding.

In the Champions League last-16 tie, Federico Chiesa’s away goal at Porto got them “back on track”, whereas Andrea Pirlo thought a nightmare start left Juventus “a little bit scared”.

Porto will be travelling to Turin for the second leg with a 2-1 lead after catching the Serie A champions cold twice at Estadio do Dragao on Wednesday.

While Moussa Marega doubled Porto’s advantage just after the break, Rodrigo Bentancur gifted Mehdi Taremi a Champions League goal with a terrible pass to goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny after just over a minute.

“The approach became wrong after the first minute. When you have conceded a goal like this it is normal to be a little scared, you lack the certainties that should never be lacking [at this stage of the competition],” former Italy international told Sky Sport Italia.

“The boys are a little down, we conceded a strange goal, then the match they wanted to play was set up and it became much more difficult.”

Pirlo added: “The tiredness after so many challenging matches is there, it is not easy to keep the same pace, but it shouldn’t have happened. Fortunately, we got back on track, now we will focus on the return [leg].”
