Rome: AC Milan head coach Massimiliano Allegri asked his side to stay calm after losing to Juventus 1-2 in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semifinals at home.
"We conceded the second goal in a very naive way. It is a shame to lose a game that we had played well in the second half although Juventus did too," Allegri was quoted as saying by football-italia.net on Wednesday.
"After the equaliser we pushed forward with too much passion and were punished on the counter-attack. The qualification for the final is an uphill struggle now, but nothing has been compromised."
