Antonio Cassano scored the only goal of the game.
â€śI am disappointed, because we did not play to our usual level. Itâ€™s clear that if we donâ€™t play well and our opponents do, then we will struggle,â€ť Benitez told Sky Sport Italia.
â€śWe lost the ball too easily, allowed too much space on the counter and wasted a few opportunities going forward with Gonzalo Higuain and Goran Pandev.
â€śI donâ€™t believe Higuain is too isolated, as Pandev was in a more advanced role. The problem was we didnâ€™t pass the ball properly.â€ť
