Juve exit dismays Ferrara

Juventus manager Ciro Ferrara insists his side had few excuses after slumping to a 4-1 home loss to Bayern Munich which ended their progress in this season's Champions League competition.
The Old Lady needed just one point to progress at the Germans expense and after David Trezeguet opened the scoring, they looked to be on their way.
But the Bundesliga giants stormed back with goalkeeper Hans-Jorg Butt's penalty restoring parity.
Second half goals from Ivica Olic, Mario Gomez and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk ended the contest as the Bianconeri were put to the sword.
Ferrara said: "It's a huge disappointment not only for myself but for the players and for the fans. To leave this competition hurts.
"But in the last two games of the Champions League we have taken zero points.
"We're not good at holding on to a draw. Bayern were superior in terms of sharpness, tactics and technique - we created very little."
