Pioli said after the game that “I thought we played a very good first half. Should be the one to take the lead And then we played without experience. We should have defended better.”

“But the truth is that the game changed because of a penalty that was never a penalty.”

“After that, we were upset, the game was lost, as was the possession. We struggled to balance and dominate the game like we did in the first half.”

“To be honest, it was very difficult. There is a lot of debate about VAR. But that’s not a penalty. Because our players can dunk the ball first. And the Atalanta player fell down before there was further contact.”
