Alessio: 'Lazio played catenaccio'  Empty Alessio: 'Lazio played catenaccio'

Juventus assistant manager Angelo Alessio feels his side “had everything except the goal” in their 0-0 draw against Lazio’s ‘catenaccio.’

“We had so many scoring opportunities and dominated the match. We had everything except the goal.

“Andrea Pirlo was suspended, but we created chances anyway and Leonardo Bonucci hit the crossbar, so he was not missed.”

Alessio accused the Biancocelesti of playing for a point in Turin and relying on goalkeeper Federico Marchetti.

“Lazio played in a catenaccio style and were simply defensive throughout. We must focus only on our own progress and our position in the table.”

Sebastian Giovinco wasted a couple of early opportunities, but Fabio Quagliarella was substituted instead.

“Giovinco had been doing better, but we also had to take into account the upcoming games,” added Alessio.

“The crowd was exemplary. It’s possible there were some jeers, but I won’t take anything away from Giovinco’s performance.”

Quags - Vucinic for Chelsea, if we are in the lead on 70 minutes bring Giovinco on for Quags to keep Chelsea on the back foot.

Also saying Pirlo was 'Not missed' is pretty insulting Laughing

Actually not. We don't have a capable replacement for Pirlo, because Pogba's style is totally different. He tried some Pirlo-like passes yesterday, but in the second half our style of play totally differed from the average as we didn't have a real leader in the middle of the park. As I've said many times Pogba is great, but we cannot expect him to replace Pirlo because he is just plain different. Pogba is a super sub for Vidal/Marchisio but not Pirlo, simple as that.

On a sidenote, it was kinda weird to see Pogba drifting out to the right many times and crossing in (in the second half mostly)

I personally was actually kinda disappointed in Pogba. He showed that hes just a box to.box/defensive midfielder, not a regista. He had a few good passes, but for.the most part, he looked nervous and didnt retain possession well except for.backpasses.
