OVERVIEW OF: Juventus vs Lazio: Pirlo criticizes Morata, others after Serie A victory
Juventus manager, Andrea Pirlo, has criticized his players, including Alvaro Morata, following their Serie A 3-1 win against Lazio on Saturday.
Pirlo said his players started bad and made a mistake with a back pass against Lazio.
A goal from Andrien Rabiot and two goals from Morata gave Juventus all three points against Lazio in Turin.
“We got off to a bad start by making a mistake with a backpass, but we didn’t let our heads drop,” Pirlo said at a post-match press conference after the game.
“We upped the tempo and fought back, and that’s the most important thing.
“It’s never easy to come back after going behind, especially against a team like Lazio, but I was really happy with our reaction tonight.
“Now we can focus on Porto – another decisive match we can’t mess up.”
Juventus’ next match is against Porto in the Champions League last-16 second-leg tie on Tuesday.
