Italia 1 Juventus 1 Juventus 0 – Juventus 3 Juventus 0: Juventus 3 (Alessandro Del Piero 74′)Juventus’ first goal was their first in a Champions League game since the 2006/07 season.
Mario Mandzukic’s first goal in Champions League action was the first of his career and his second for Juventus, the first by a defender in the competition for almost four decades.
Juventus had the better of the first half, but only managed a pair of goals in the first 45 minutes.
José Mourinho’s side were still in control of their destiny in the second half, though.
The home side came into the game on the back of a 3-0 victory over Napoli and were without the services of the injured Paulo Dybala, while Andrea Pirlo was ruled out due to an ankle injury.
Juve regained the initiative in the third period, though, and Mandzukić took advantage of the lapse to shoot past Antonio Conte to equalise.
