Juventus coach Pirlo on Benevento draw: We lost our cool in chaos

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Benevento.

Alvaro Morata opened the scoring for Juve, but Gaetano Letizia managed an equaliser for Benevento.

"We controlled the first half, had the chances to kill off the game, but still haven't worked out how to read the various moments of the match," Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia.

“We had a corner and took it quickly on the stroke of half-time, but we should've controlled the situation and held out until the break. It's not the first time we have conceded just before the break.

“At the end, we got a bit chaotic and lost our cool, we didn't manage to turn the chances into goals."

He added: “We are working on the development of the play. We have one more attacking winger, one who comes from deeper. At times it works, at others it doesn't.

“Unfortunately, when games get chaotic and messy, we have to play clean, good football and take control of the match. Otherwise we struggle, as we did today and against Crotone.

“We've got to learn the moments of the game, when to kill it off and when to control the tempo."
