Adrien Rabiot had it bad after the draw conceded by Juventus Turin against Sevilla FC (1-1) in the Europa League.
Juventus Turin limited the damage on Thursday in the first leg of the Europa League semi-final. Surprised by FC Sevilla in the first period, the Bianconeri finally snatched the draw (1-1) in the last moments of additional time thanks to Federico Gatti, perfectly served by Paul Pogba. A lesser evil for the Old Lady, who will nevertheless have to win in Andalusia to win her ticket to the final unless it goes through a penalty shootout.
Adrien Rabiot did not hide his frustration at the end of the meeting. “It was complicated but I would say that it is still deserved. We struggled well in the first half, we started the match well, we tried to create chances that we could have put away. Unfortunately that was not the case and we took a goal behind.he reacted to the microphone of RMC Sport, adding: “But we stuck together, we continued to attack, we were solid despite a few counter-attacks. We could even have made the score worse. The draw is correct on the whole of the match but there are small facts of play which could have been sanctioned… ” An allusion in particular to the fault he suffered in the area during a duel with Loïc Badé.
And given the mark on his leg, the vice-world champion could have it bad. “I immediately showed the mark to the referee but he had no reaction, regretted the former Parisian. The VAR didn’t say anything, but I’m not one to complain, I immediately felt that he grabbed my leg. That’s why I stayed down. Then I reviewed the images and it seems obvious, there was clearly a penalty. But the referee decided otherwise, so too bad. »
