Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says his side deserved more from Tuesday's night Champions League game against Juventus.
The Citizens looked in control after taking the lead in the second half but a determined Juventus side fought back to win the game and take all three points.
It was an unexpected defeat for the Citizens after their impressive start to the season but the Chilean is not concerned.
"I think it was a strange game," Pellegrini told reporters.
"I don't think that we deserved to lose this game. We played better than Juventus, we had three clear chances to score, I think Gianluigi Buffon made a good save and we were very unlucky, especially on their first goal.
"We played against a strong team, with not too many options, but I think we controlled the game and really I don't remember Juventus creating important chances.
"In the last two seasons we started by losing and both seasons we qualified for the next stage.
"We are just starting, it's a game you never want to lose here at home because they are three very important points but the group is just starting.
"We have 15 points more to play for so it depends on the way we play the next game.
"It's not the best way to start losing at home against a strong team but it doesn't mean we won't qualify, we have to play against Juventus there and another four games, and we'll see which team has the most points at the end."
