Alberto Aquilani struck a hat-trick from midfield for the Viola.
"I believe games need to be analysed in their entirety and we should also view other results to realise there are no easy matches in Serie A. This evening it wasn't easy on paper either!" Montella told Sky Sport Italia.
"I think we could've won if we had made more of certain incidents. I saw Facundo Roncaglia's late shot and it curved in a bizarre fashion, almost as if it had been remote-controlled to swerve wide. It was incredible! Maybe we're cursed!
"I never talk about the referees, so I'll just say mistakes can happen."
