The 1-0 loss is a major setback to Inter's title hopes.
"Juventus deserved to take the lead, looking back on the first-half, but after the break, we deserved to win as they pushed players behind the ball," Maicon told Inter Channel.
"The ball did not go into the net tonight, as things went bad this evening for us. But in the second-half, we did much better. We are relaxed, and know what we can do going forward.
"The match in Florence [against Fiorentina] will be decisive for the Scudetto.
"I generally like to play catch-up football, because it means I have to give everything I have mentally. Unfortunately, when you take on the big sides, they mark me well, and don't let me get past them."
