Juve drew 0-0 in the second-leg, losing the tie 2-1 on aggregate.
Conte snapped: â€śWhat didnâ€™t work was that we didnâ€™t get that incident going our way. Itâ€™s a shame, as these games are right on the limit, Benfica obstructed us at every turn and the referee allowed them to do it.
â€śHe gave six minutes of stoppages when we were already three in without playing, so it took us for a ride,â€ť said Conte of English referee Mark Clattenburg.
â€śI think Juventus gave all they had. It is an exciting, but also very exhausting season, because for the first time weâ€™ve reached the final stages of European competition.
â€śI donâ€™t think we saw a team struggling to stay on its feet tonight. They ran from the first to the 95th minute. It was a strong performance, we didnâ€™t get the lucky moment we needed to change the game, so in that sense Benfica were more fortunate."
