Diego Godin: Atletico Madrid had no goal threat

Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin confessed his side did not pose enough of a goal threat during their Champions League elimination to Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick downed Atleti after Diego Simeone’s side had won the first leg 2-0, with Los Rojiblancos failing to muster a shot on target in the second leg.

“We couldn’t find a way to hurt them,” Godin told reporters after the game.

“We defended but conceded goals. We didn’t look like scoring a goal, which was needed for the tie.

“We weren’t surprised by Juve at all. We knew it’d be a difficult match, against tough opponents who would play.

“They defended well and attacked well. They were careful and smart, while we couldn’t find the goal we needed.

“We’ll keep going until the end of the season, giving everything like always. We’re the ones who suffer the most and regret this result.

“We wanted to go through. Now we must pick ourselves back up and keep fighting until the end like always.”
