Football: Copenhagen deny dominant Juventus
COPENHAGEN (AFP) - Despite a dominant second-half display, Juventus had to settle for a 1-1 draw in their Champions League Group B opener away to FC Copenhagen on Tuesday.
Nicolai Jorgensen gave the hosts a 15th-minute lead but, after riding their luck in the first half, the Danes fell to a 54th-minute equaliser from Fabio Quagliarella.
Juve went on to dominate after the interval but were thwarted by a combination of 'keeper Johan Wiland's brilliance as well as their own inaccuracy.
The Italian champions' coach Antonio Conte made a number of changes from his usual starting 11 for the clash against the Danish title-holders, who have endured a mediocre start to their domestic season.
