Former star defender Alessandro Costacurta questions the mentality Juventus had in their heavy 4-0 loss against Chelsea on Tuesday.
The Bianconeri had a 100 percent record in the Champions League ahead of their away trip to Stamford Bridge. Massimiliano Allegri’s side already secured their ticket into the next round but still have a first-place position to play for.
However, the match turned ugly for Juve as they found themselves losing 4-0 to Thomas Tuchel’s men. Many Italian football pundits were disappointed with that result, not to mention Costacurta.
The former Milan defender was questioning the focus and mentality that Juventus’ players had on Tuesday.
“Yesterday, Juve played with the ‘we already qualified’ mentality,” Costacurta told Sky Sport (via Juventusnews24).
“They were probably thinking of Atalanta already but then they suffered a big loss,” the former defender said.
The Bianconeri will face another tough test this weekend as they play host to Atalanta at Allianz Stadium.
Juve are hoping to maintain their recent good run of two consecutive wins in Serie A and forget about their loss against Chelsea.
