Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo believes his side are a little deflated after failing to beat Juventus at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues were 2-0 ahead in their Champions League opener against the Italian champions, thanks to two goals from summer signing Oscar.
For Chelsea, to have let a two-goal lead slip on home turf was disappointing, even if Di Matteo appreciated that his side were facing quality opponents in the Bianconeri.
"We found ourselves in a great position to win the game. We knew we were playing a quality side", said Di Matteo on the BBC.
"I think we probably made couple of mistakes on their goals, but they had good movement and quality for those strikes."
The Chelsea boss also took time out to praise the impact that Oscar had, a player the Champions League holders snapped up in the summer from Brazilian giants Internacional.
"It is terrific for Oscar – we were waiting for the right game to put him in the team.
"His second goal was fantastic."
Di Matteo did admit though that, when all said and done, there was a feeling of having let something slip in the game, especially with his side having been in a commanding position at one point.
"We feel a little bit deflated. We were ahead and have come away with a draw, but now we move on to the next game."
