Kwadwo Asamoah confirmed Juventus are â€œphysically not in great shapeâ€ and lost their focus against Lyon.
The Bianconeri won 2-1 on the night, 3-1 on aggregate, to reach the Europa League semi-final.
â€œIt was very important for us, as it wasnâ€™t easy. We saw in tonightâ€™s game that it was not simple against an opponent like Lyon, who played better than in the first leg,â€ the Ghanaian told Sky Sport Italia.
â€œWe were able to do some of the things we studied in training. The tempo lowered a little and we lost concentration on the corner, so thatâ€™s where the game changed a bit.
â€œWe kept our calm and moved the ball around patiently to keep possession, as physically weâ€™re not in great shape, so we had to make the ball work for us.
â€œWe are playing every three or four days, so itâ€™s not easy.â€
