Juventus fullback Danilo apologised to fans after their defeat to Villarreal in Turin.

Villarreal won the second-leg of their Champions League round 16 tie 3-0 in Turin to reach the quarterfinals 4-1 on aggregate.

“This is the Champions League, there are teams of a very high level and these things can happen," Danilo said.

“We must learn from this, because in order to compete at the highest level, you need to be concentrated all the way to the end. We were too unbalanced going forward and they punished us.

“We made some mistakes, we have to improve and keep working day after day, because tiny details make the difference.

“It's difficult to understand what just happened. We can only apologise to everyone and learn from this for the future, because this is a valuable lesson in the Champions League."
