FC Shakhtar Donetsk were unfortunate not to leave Turin with three points as the first European match at the Juventus Stadium finished 1-1.

Having overturned a 2-0 deficit to earn a draw at Chelsea FC on matchday one, Juventus fell behind again on 23 minutes when Alex Teixeira gave Shakhtar a deserved lead. The Bianconeri levelled within two minutes, Leonardo Bonucci finishing superbly, but were hanging on late in the game as Shakhtar joined Chelsea – 4-0 winners at FC Nordsjælland – on four points at the Group E summit.

If, in the first 20 minutes, we played like we are used to doing we would be here celebrating a victory.

We knew we were facing a team which plays good football and are good on the counterattack. Therefore, we can say it is a good point for us in the end.
