Conte bemoans 'unthinkable' loss

Juventus coach Antonio Conte bemoaned an ‘unthinkable’ result as the Serie A champions crashed to a ‘nightmare’ loss to Fiorentina.

• Rzouki: Juve meltdown results in a Fiorentina comeback

The Turin giants were in complete control leading 2-0 at half-time, but a four-goal haul in 14 minutes from Giuseppe Rossi turned the game and sent Juve crashing to its first league defeat of the season.

And after the game, Conte admitted he was at a loss as to how his side had failed to win a game they had “practically closed”.

"I think the game was practically closed. We were in control in every way, even in the second half and had some more great chances to add to our tally," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"Then something strange and unthinkable happened. We lost a match that we had been dominating. How do we explain it?

"In 10 minutes we destroyed all the hard work, both during and before the game. We managed to allow Fiorentina back into it and concede odd goals.

However, Conte, who predicted this season would prove “very, very difficult”, said that his side would quickly learn from this loss, especially with the club making the trip to Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. 

"This is football. We have to take these 10 nightmare minutes and learn from them,” Conte said. “I continue to say this year will be very, very difficult.

"In these 10 minutes we did everything to help Fiorentina get back into the match, more than they had been at any stage. There are huge regrets.

"We struggled more last season and got a draw, whereas this time until the 70th minute it was all Juventus. This is football, nothing can be taken for granted.

“This was an important game in a fiery atmosphere, so we could not be distracted by Real Madrid.

"We were in the match from the start and only went wrong in those 10 minutes.

"It has happened a few times this season that we’ve conceded chaotic goals. We have to work on it. That is all."
