After two seasons, Juventus has returned to where they have been at home for so much of their history: the UEFA Champions League. Their first task was a stiff one: contend with the defending European Champions, Chelsea, at their home field of Stanford Bridge in London.
Their task looked even more difficult after 33 minutes, when Oscar scored his second goal in two minutes to give the Blues a 2-0 lead. But the bianconeri never panicked and were back in the game just six minutes later on a goal by Arturo Vidal. After a see-saw second half that saw both teams squander chances, substitute Fabio Quagliarella scored a brilliant equalizer with ten minutes left, and the spoils were shared in the 2-2 draw.
So who proved themselves today for the Old Lady of Italian soccer, and who showed that they are in need of immediate improvement?
Let's take a closer look at some of the key players in this game.
