Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said his team should be both angry and satisfied after losing 2-1 at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

Juventus suffered five defeats in six group stage games, but finished ahead of Maccabi Haifa on goal difference to qualify for the Europa League.

Juventus won only one of their Champions League group games – which was a 3 – 1 win over Maccabi Haifa in Turin, leaving them with just three points from six games.

After losing to PSG, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri stated that the club should be both satisfied and angry.

Allegri’s side have had a dismal season so far, sitting seventh in Serie A, 10 points behind leaders Napoli.

Benfica’s 6-1 thrashing of Maccabi Haifa ensured that the Italians finished third in Group H and thus qualified for the Europa League play-off round.

“We had a good game, it’s a pity about the result,” Allegri told Mediaset.

“We are in the Europa League and from tomorrow we turn over a new leaf to focus on Serie A. We should be fired up, angry and get right back to work”.

“There is a part of us that should be satisfied at achieving the Europa League spot, but another part has to be angry, because we cannot just let this elimination slide.”
