Sarri happy with point at Atletico, laments missed opportunities


(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) JUVENTUS COACH MAURIZIO SARRI, SAYING: "There are things to improve, small details, but this costs you points.

I have two different sensations.

I'm satisfied because the team had a good match, my boys never scored away to Atletico (Madrid) before and today we were close to scoring a third goal.

There are good things but allow me to be a bit angry because from the bench we thought that the match was under control." STORY: Atletico Madrid produced a typically spirited comeback from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Juventus in a thrilling finale to Wednesday's (September 18) heavyweight Champions League Group D opener.

The Spaniards were the brighter side in the first half but Juve went ahead in the 48th minute when Juan Cuadrado sent an unstoppable curling shot into the top corner after a break engineered by a punt forward from Bonucci.

The Italian champions doubled their lead in the 65th minute following another quick counter as midfielder Blaise Matuidi headed home a cross from Alex Sandro.

Defender Stefan Savic pulled a goal back for the Spaniards in the 70th with a header from close range following a free kick before Mexico midfielder Hector Herrera levelled in the 90th minute with a thumping header from a corner.

Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri said he felt happy to come away from the fixture with a point, but angered by missed opportunities that could have put the result beyond doubt.

Atletico and Juve have a point each while Lokomotiv Moscow top Group D after beating Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 away from home.
