Cagliari coach Roberto Donadoni was less than pleased about his side's first half showing.
Cagliari coach Roberto Donadoni was disappointed with the Isolani's tentative first half display in the 3-1 loss to Juventus on Saturday evening.

The Bianconeri jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first 45 minutes before the Sardinians rallied with a goal of their own early in the second period and looked to have seized the momentum. But two more goals from the Old Lady doomed Donadoni's side to defeat.

"We started well in the second half and we managed to trouble Juventus," the 47-year-old tactician stated to Sky Sport Italia after the match. "I didn't like our energy in the first half and we were much too passive."

Donadoni went on to speak about Alessandro Matri's brace as the striker came back to haunt his old club.

"Matri did well tonight and these sort of things happen in football," he concluded.

The loss leaves Cagliari in ninth place, two points ahead of Chievo ahead on Sunday's encounters.
