Conte: 'Almost another draw...'  Empty Conte: 'Almost another draw...'

Antonio Conte felt “regret and even anger” at having to scrape a victory over Lazio when Juventus had dominated the game.

“There is certainly some regret and even anger, as we dominate games and don’t close them off, which often ended up in draws. This was heading in a similar direction, as we were in control and not determined enough to get the final blow,” he said of the 2-1 win.

“Unfortunately it was happening again today after an excellent first half and we allowed Lazio so little. We have to improve and grow, but the lads are achieving something extraordinary.

“It’s inevitable that if we converted all our scoring opportunities, we’d all be calmer and our coronary arteries under less stress! It’d also be fair, as Juventus dominated so much and had to suffer until the final whistle tonight.

“It’s ok, as we go back on top of the table and always have Milan’s pressure behind us, but it is a good step forward.”

It was set to be another draw until Alessandro Del Piero came off the bench to curl in a decisive free kick.

“Del Piero, it’s a great fortune for us to have him here. When you need to score, he’s your man. He has always been and will always be an added bonus for the team. If I ask him for a minute, five minutes, eight or a whole game, he always gives 100 per cent.”

Conte was asked whether he will speak to President Andrea Agnelli in a bid to renew Del Piero’s contract, as he is set to leave on a free transfer in June.

“Compliments to Ale and the whole team. At this moment we must focus on Cesena and the present, then there will be time to discuss the future. What is important right now is to recoup energy and be ready for the next test.”

This could not be more true. Pirlo and ADP were carrying the team, the only players who even looked like being able to open up the Lazio defence even though Juve dominated possession for most of the game.

It's more like we missed a ton of sitters. That's what he thought and that's where the problems come in. Marchetti was amazing though.
