Boss ‘deflated’ after Chelsea draw

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo spoke of his disappointment following his side’s 2-2 draw with Juventus in a pulsating Champions League tussle at Stamford Bridge.

Oscar’s double – which included a magnificent 25-yard strike – put the European champions in control.

But the Italians hit back and, despite only managing two shots on target, were good value for their point.

Di Matteo told Sky Sports: “It was a very good football game and both teams could have won it. We had chances to get a third goal and probably close the game but it was probably a deserved draw.

“We were in a great position to win the game and only got a draw but we knew we were playing a quality side.

“We made a couple of mistakes on their goals but they had good movement and quality finishing as well.

“We feel a bit deflated because we were ahead but it will be a tough group and we move on to the next game now.”

Oscar’s performance on his first start for the club was a definite plus for Di Matteo.

The Blues boss said: “It was a terrific debut for him. We were waiting for the right game to put him into the team and it was wonderful to watch him.

“He played a very big role for us and the second goal was fantastic.”
