Juventus, which has started very badly in Serie A by adding a point in the first three days, was able to get off to a good start in the Champions League, where it won 3-0 this Tuesday as a visitor in the field of the Swedish Malmö.
This victory leaves the Turinese as leaders of Group H, with 3 points, the same as the other favorite of the key, Chelsea (defending champion), who beat Russian Zenit 1-0.
After a first warning with a good chance that the Argentine Paulo Dybala sent high in the 10th, Juventus opened the scoring in the 22nd, when the Brazilian Alex Sandro, to the center of the Colombian Juan Cuadrado, headed the local net.
In the last moments of the first half, ‘Juve’ killed the game. Dybala signed the second first, transforming a penalty at 45, and at 45 + 1 the Spaniard Álvaro Morata took advantage of an error by the Swedish defense to raise above the goalkeeper and put the 3-0.
In the second half, Juventus smoothly managed their lead, controlled the situation and the good work of their Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny ended any remote hope of Malmö’s comeback.
The ‘Vecchia Signora’ will now have to return to their harsh reality in Serie A, where they host AC Milan on Sunday.
After turning the page on Cristiano Ronaldo, who failed to guide Juventus to the European title in the past three seasons at the club, the historic club this season dreams of claiming its third crown in Europe’s most important competition. The last one dates back to 1996.
Malmö, champions of their country and who reached the group stage from the previous rounds, already shared the key in this tournament with Juventus in the 2014-2015 campaign, where they lost both games against the Italians.
The disputed in Sweden was decided then with a 2-0, with goals from the Argentine Carlos Tevez and the Spanish Fernando Llorente.
The momentum of Lille does not demolish the order of Wolfsburg
A willful Lille, who gave him momentum and eagerly sought victory in his return to the Champions League, was not enough to overturn the order imposed by Wolfsburg, who took a point (0-0) holding the result.
The champions of France, who have been at a loss this season, put more quality hearts on it to try to start his return to the top European competition with triumph, where in the last editions in which he has participated he had left a poor image.
But he found himself with a rival who bets on the order imposed by the Dutch coach Mark van Bommel, a former Barcelona player among others, who leads the table in his country where he counts matches by victories.
