Lorenzo Pellegrini bitter after defeat to Bayer: “We played better than them.”

Andy Mattioli

Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini expressed regret at his team’s missed scoring opportunities in tonight’s defeat to Bayer Leverkusen.

Following the match, Pellegrini spoke to Sky Sport.

“The only regret is that they scored two goals and we scored zero. Between them and us, I think we played better than they did today. We continued to play until the end.”

“Tonight they will probably go home thinking they have passed the round, but we return home to prepare for Sunday’s match and then we want to create problems for them on Thursday.”

“I think that compared to today the only thing that needs to be improved is the fact of having to score goals. I don’t know how many opportunities we created. They made some counterattacks, they pressed a lot. We need to be more cynical next Thursday. If we create like today, for me everything is possible.”
