Vucinic rues Juve misfortune

Mirko Vucinic has defended his Juventus side from claims that they are too predictable as an attacking force.

The Old Lady complicated their Champions League campaign on Tuesday with a frustrating 1-1 draw at Danish minnows Nordsjaelland.

Nordsjaelland took a shock lead before Vucinic, having recovered from a fever, came on to grab a point.
