Juventus fullback Danilo: Our first-half not good enough

Juventus fullback Danilo admits their first-half wasn't good enough for their Champions League defeat at Lyon.

Juve fell 1-0 for the first-leg of their round 16 clash.

"We cannot just gift the first half to the opposition in such an important tournament. We are aware that we did that and need to work harder," Danilo told Sky Sport Italia.

“We must always play with the aggression that we showed in the second half, when we kept the ball practically the entire time and showed more courage, more initiative.

“Playing in front of our fans in the second leg, it is our obligation to press, push, score, win and qualify for the next stage of the competition."
