Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio says his team were lucky not to lose their home Champions League clash with Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday.

The Turin giants fell 1-0 behind early in the game when Brazilian Alex Teixeira found the net, but Leonardo Bonucci restored parity shortly after. Both sides had a number of chances to bag the full three points, but were unable to net a second.

“We were up against a side capable of playing good football, and very fast on the break. We didn’t start very well but then we managed to get a handle on them and could even have gone in front,” Marchisio told the club’s official website.

“There were a few tired legs out there towards the end, though, and – credit to our opponents too – we could have lost the game, too.

“Now we have a double header against (Danish side) Nordsjaelland which, on paper at least, should be a bit easier. We still need to approach them very carefully though. We can’t afford to slip up.

“We’ve only just got back in the Champions League and we all need to prove that we’re good enough to be here.”

Juventus sit third in Group E with two points from as many games.
