An outstanding FC København rearguard action led by goalkeeper Johan Wiland ensured that, as they did last year, Juventus departed the Parken after a frustrating 1-1 draw.
In last season's UEFA Champions League group stage it was FC Nordsjælland who shared the spoils but this time it was København and the indomitable Wiland who restricted the illustrious visitors. A Juventus triumph had looked likely when Fabio Quagliarella cancelled out Nicolai Jørgensen's opener nine minutes after the break, yet FCK somehow held on to register a Group B point on matchday one.
Our first half was almost perfect and as well as scoring a goal, we had two opportunities. That performance was the best we can manage at the moment.
Ståle Solbakken, FCK coach
We are very disappointed. We dropped two points because unfortunately we missed too many goalscoring opportunities.
Fabio Quagliarella, Juventus striker
