Del Piero: Worst conditions ever

Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero has complained about the conditions in which last night's Europa League clash with Lech Poznan were played.

A blizzard made visibility very poor even though a red ball was used and ice studs worn in the snowy conditions in Poland.

At one point the temperature even dropped to -11 degrees.

Juventus went behind early in the first half, but equalised with seven minutes remaining to earn a 1-1 draw.

The result means Juventus are out of the Europa League and their final group match against Manchester City is now nothing more than a friendly.

"They were the worst conditions in which I have ever played," Del Piero said.

"It's a shame. We created a lot. But in the second half we couldn't see anything."
