Juventus travelled to Ukraine Wednesday night to take on Shakhtar Donetsk in a UEFA Champions League fixture that would decide whether or not the Bianconeri would still be active on the highest stage of European football after the winter break.
After a hard-fought game, Antonio Conte's men came away with a 0-1 win to secure the top spot in Group E.
The contest was a close affair, with both teams seemingly afraid to lose in a first half that saw few chances. Sebastian Giovinco came closest to breaking the deadlock, but his shot from the edge of the box went just wide of the post.
In the second half, the gloves came off and both teams exchanged blows before the Bianconeri finally found the net after 56 minutes of play.
Shakhtar tried pushing for a late equaliser but never really threatened the goal of Gianluigi Buffon.
