Di Matteo laments dropped points

Published Add your comment

Roberto Di Matteo admitted Chelsea only had themselves to blame after watching them blow a two-goal lead to open their defence of the Champions League with a 2-2 draw against Juventus.

Oscar looked set to enjoy a dream European debut after scoring a stunning first-half double but the Italian champions ruthlessly exposed the holders' defensive deficiencies to snatch a Group E draw at Stamford Bridge, with Arturo Vidal and Fabio Quagliarella on target.

Di Matteo said: "We feel disappointed and a little bit deflated that we found ourselves in a fantastic position to win this game and we came away only with a draw. We should have closed the game and brought the win home."
