ATHENS – Despite a crushing 3-2 loss to Italian side Juventus in European League soccer play, Olympiakos coach Michel said he was proud of his team.

“We’re not a big European team but we’ve shown that we are a threat when we travel away from home as well. Juventus is a great club with a great history, so we’re proud of what we did tonight,” he said after the game, according to Kathimerini.

“I’m proud of our performance, especially (goalkeeper) Roberto who once again showed his class. Saving that penalty could prove decisive for us when it comes to qualifying,” said Michel of the Spaniard’s save of Arturo Vidal’s spot-kick deep in injury time that has preserved Olympiakos’ edge over Juventus in their head-to-head record.

“But now we have two games left and we will go to the Vicente Calderon (stadium, in Madrid) looking to play the game we have been playing.”

Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri told reporters: “It’s a shame we missed the penalty, it would have rounded off a good night for us.” He, too, was happy with the result.

“Tonight the crucial thing was to get the win, so we have to be positive. We still have two games to secure our qualification.”
