First results from match day two left both Italian clubs drawing even against opponents BATE Borisov and FC Steaua Bucuresti.
Yesterday’s Match Summary
BATE Borisov 2 – 2 Juventus
After falling behind two goals to nil in the early going, Juventus needed two Vincenzo Iaqunita goals to salvage a point away to newcomers Borisov.
Carlo Garganese/Goal.com – despite being shifted out in an alien right midfield position by Ranieri, Giovinco was absolutely outstanding. He created both of Iaquinta’s goals, the second with a brilliant slide rule pass. He also put Nedved clean through on goal, and every chance Juve had came through him.
Pros – the Formica Atomica (Atomic Ant) young Sebastian Giovinco played the entire match and orchestrated both Bianconeri goals, see goal highlights.
Cons – of the match, the absence of Gigi Buffon in net and D. Trezeguet as a striking option, Brazilian Amauri would make a late appearance after doubts of readiness prior to match time.
BATE Borisov: Veremko; Yurevich, Sosnovski, Rzhevski, Kazantsev; Likhtarovich (Sivakov 69), Volodko; Stasevich, Kryvets, Nekhaychik (Mirchev 86); Rodionov (Pecha 92)
Juventus: Manninger; Grygera, Legrottaglie (Knezevic 18), Chiellini, De Ceglie; Giovinco, Sissoko, Camoranesi (Marchisio 46), Nedved; Del Piero, Iaquinta (Amauri 81)
