With nine points behind leaders AC Milan, Juventus are not doing well in Serie A. They couldn’t have gotten out of the core blocks better. Dusan Vlahovic picked up a long ball of air and put the skin inside. It took Vlahovic 32 seconds to score on his debut in the Champions League.
Juventus managed to look from the tree and give the ball to Villarreal. The host team tried to disrupt Italian regulation, but that turned out to be easier said than done.
Lo Celso hit the post once, Danjuma tried in turn with a beautiful heel. All in all, the old lady survived easily.
But persistence wins. Capoue saw that Parejo suddenly stood alone at the sixteenth of the opponent. The French midfielder put the skin on Parejo’s tie. Can’t miss head-to-head with Chesney: 1-1.
Rabiot still escaped the red and Vlahovic nearly scored his second goal of the evening. Partly because of the good reaction from Rulli, he stayed at 1-1. So the return leg remains exciting. It will be held in Turin on March 16th.
