MILAN - After six consecutive league wins, Inter tasted defeat for the first time in the 2019-20 Serie A season. The late match in the seventh round of fixtures saw Juventus win 1-2. A Lautaro Martinez penalty wasn’t enough after Dybala opened the scoring with Higuain coming up with a late winner at San Siro.
“It was a match against a very, very strong team and I’m sorry about the loss,” said Antonio Conte. “We paid for the Sensi injury, losing our way a bit. At the start of the second half, we didn’t do well but then we got back into the game and either side could have scored. There were chances at both ends but they scored, using everything in their arsenal and making their experience count.
“I don’t have anything to say to the guys because we still have a long way to go in terms of how we manage and understand moments in a match. Congratulations to them, we’ll roll up our sleeves and keep working hard to move forward on our journey. There are no shortcuts in this regard, they’re at a different level and we’re looking to improve so that we can close the gap.
“We could have done better with our finishing and the final ball but the team did what it could. Looking at the statistics, it was a closer game than perhaps shows on paper.”
