Chiellini: Bayern suffered before us

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini insists ‘it is not surprising’ his side were beaten by a late Real Madrid penalty, due to Bayern Munich’s experience last year.

Madrid were awarded a controversial penalty 30 seconds from stoppage time ending ahead of extra time, and the Italian international cited similar misfortune for Bayern against Madrid at this stage last season.

“It is not surprising, Bayern Munich went through it last year and this was Juve’s turn,” Chiellini told Mediaset Premium.

“Between the first leg and this one, just about everything happened. It’s laughable that the Italian refereeing designator said things are going well in the Champions League.

“Nobody thought we could turn it around, but we believed and it’ll help us for the next Champions League campaigns. It’ll be an objective for the future.

“You could tell at the time it wasn’t a penalty but seeing the footage back it’s just laughable. We must remember that we beat Real Madrid 3-0 on their own turf and only a crazy person would’ve believed that going in.

“We could’ve scored five or six goals tonight, so we ought to be proud. We want to win the seventh Scudetto.”
