Torino manager, Walter Mazzarri has disclosed that Juventus forward, Cristiano Ronaldo “punished” his team the only time they let their guard down.
Mazzarri said this while reacting to his side’s 1-1 draw against Juventus on Friday night.
Sasa Lukic had given Torino the lead in the 17th minute before Ronaldo scored a late header in the second half to hand Max Allegri’s side a point at Allianz Stadium.
But Mazzarri admitted after the match that Ronaldo’s equalizer ‘burns’, adding that his team could have scored a second goal.
The result against Juventus leaves Torino in sixth place on the Serie A table, two points off the Champions League qualification spot with three games left to play.
“This draw burns, we could have scored a second goal and brought the win home,” Mazzarri was quoted by NDTV Sports as saying after the match.
“The only time we let down our guard the phenomenon that is Ronaldo punished us.”
