"The 2-0 is certainly a good result going into the second leg," the Coach told Sport Mediaset.
"We did well, but there is still another game to play. We got too stretched out in the second half when pushing hard for another goal, risking something at the back by fielding three strikers.
"I needed a response and I got it on the field, because if we want to carry on in two competitions then we need everyone," continued Conte.
"I looked at the fixture list and, in the most optimistic reading, we'd play 16 games in 52 days. That would destroy players if I always used the same ones. We have to involve the entire squad and try to help those who haven't played as much get their match fitness.
"I don't know any other way of going forward."
