Torino coach Sinisa Mihajlovic: My players were fantastic for Juventus draw

Adem Ljajic handed the visitors the lead after 52 minutes, before Gonzalo Higuain rescued the league leaders with the equaliser in stoppage time.

Miralem Pjanic flicked the ball to Higuain on the edge of the area and the Argentina global fired a right-footed strike into the bottom left corner.

With an eye on the return leg against Monaco on Wednesday morning, Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri is set to rest key players such as goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon against Torino. Roma could hand Juventus the title if it fails to match or beat the Bianconeri's result when it visits AC Milan on Sunday.

"I could see from the touchline that he got the ball cleanly. It was one of the games of the season, it was frantic from the start".

"We did something nobody else had been able to do, which was to stop Juventus winning at home in Serie A and we did it with 10 men".

For those who missed, Juventus on Wednesday won a guest victory over Monaco 0-2 and has nearly two legs in the final, and therefore I think that Allegri will resort to a change in the basis.




Medhi Benatia headed against the crossbar early on for Juventus while Hart saved from Stephan Lichtsteiner and then blocked Dybala's shot with his chest after the Argentine burst through the Torino defence.

"Nonetheless, we came here and fought hard, knowing that if we played to our best, it would not be easy even for Juventus".

"We're all happy. They all played well, more or less".

Dries Mertens celebrated his 30th birthday by scoring twice to lead Napoli to a 3-1 win over Cagliari which lifted them into second place in Serie A on Saturday. And that's just the 24 league goals for Higuain this season.

Diego Farias pulled one back for Cagliari in stoppage time, but it proved to be scant consolation for the mid-table side.
