Roberto Mancini marked his first game as Galatasaray AŞ coach with a 2-2 draw at Juventus in a vibrant UEFA Champions League Group B encounter.
After losing 6-1 at home to Real Madrid CF in their opening fixture, the Turkish champions limited the Juventus attack in the first half and punished a defensive mistake through Didier Drogba's goal. The Bianconeri continued to toil to find spaces but a penalty by Arturo Vidal and a Fabio Quagliarella header seemed to have earned victory – until substitute Umut Bulut's late strike saved the visitors.
It is not easy to accept this draw. It is not a positive result for us. We started slowly, just like last season, but if it goes in the same way then it is OK.
Fabio Quagliarella, Juventus striker
Our team consists of some very good players. They just need to show more self-confidence on the pitch. I only arrived two days ago. It wasn't an easy week.
