Rossi: Juventus result a lie

Paolo Rossi is struggling to understand how Juventus didn’t win their Champions League game against FC Copenhagen.

The Old Lady dominated the tie after falling a goal behind, but they could only grab a 1-1 draw after some sloppy finishing and inspired goalkeeping from Johan Wiland.

“The result is a lie, a big lie,” stated the man who won the European Cup with Juventus in 1985. “A lack of focus from Juve was the reason behind Copenhagen’s goal.

“Juventus created 10 scoring opportunities and only managed to put away one.

“You also have to underline the positive performance of the Danish ‘keeper who kept Juve out after the game was tied.”

The Bianconeri are next in European action on Wednesday 2 October when they will host Galatasaray in the Juventus Stadium.

The Turkish side had a difficult beginning to their campaign as they lost 6-1 at home to Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid.
