Giovinco Feel Sorry For Miss Pinalty...

Juventus came into to their final match with BATE knowing that they had already qualified for the next phase of the competition. Having said this though, anything but a defeat would ensure them of top spot in the group, ahead of the Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Giovinco Sorry For Penalty Miss Against BATE
Their clash with BATE was at home, and so the Bianconeri were more than confident of achieving this. It ended 0-0 however, as neither side managed to break the other down.

The home side certainly had the better of the chances throughout the contest, most notably a penalty that they were awarded early in the second half.

With Alessandro Del Piero on the bench, the club’s young starlet Sebastian Giovinco stepped up to take the kick, only to see it fly over the bar, and deny his side a victory in the process.

Following the match, Giovinco apologized for his penalty miss, and made some comments on the performance of his side tonight.

“I really do apologize to my team mates and to the fans, but I promise I will try again,” declared a smiling Giovinco in an interview with Sky.

“Thankfully the miss didn’t cost us top spot in the group, and so we are still happy with our performance despite the draw.

“We were not at our best tonight, however that’s because BATE did not allow us to do so,” he added.

“Now we turn our attention to Milan, and hopefully we can bounce back and win that match this weekend,” he concluded.

Juventus and Milan to battle at the Olimpico in Turin this Sunday, with play getting underway at 20:30 CET.
