Bologna midfielder Roberto Soriano admitted his side wasn’t aggressive enough in yesterday’s 1-0 defeat versus Torino.

The Rossoblu couldn’t build on last week’s upset win over Inter and fell to Ivan Juric’s men last night in Turin.

“We knew we would meet a team that doesn’t let you play, that always presses and that it would be a high-intensity match,” stated Soriano to the club’s official website.

“In the first half we were too passive and wasted a lot of energy. After the interval we played better, we advanced a little bit and created some chances: if we had scored one of them perhaps it could’ve been a different game.”

“The team, as always, gave everything, we play every game to win and we are disappointed to have lost because we wanted to give continuity to the results of late but every game has a story of itself.”

Finally, “Let’s file this game away and go back to Bologna and focus on training each day and being ready for the next one.”
