Juventus coach Conte defends his tactics for Galatasaray draw

Juventus coach Antonio Conte is being accused of predictable tactics after their 2-2 draw with Champions League opponents Galatasaray.

Juve struggled to find a way through Gala's defence last night.

"We can change something to surprise our opponents during the game, but these are our tactics. In the squad we only have Simone Pepe who can allow us to play 4-3-3. Based on the players at my disposal, I try to put them in the best condition to play.

"I don't think I could use Stephan Lichtsteiner or Isla upfront in a 4-3-3. Unfortunately Pepe had this injury and we don't have the right type of wingers in the squad.

"There are five strikers in the squad and they all play, so they all feel important. Whatever happens, people will complain about who I am leaving out, but I can't use them all simultaneously."
