Juventus and Bayern stutter against Donetsk as week 2 of Europe concludes
The adjustment to Europe is always tricky and Juventus who have been rampant in Serie A laboured to a 1-1 draw against Shaktar Donestsk. And to be truthfull we were lucky to escape with a point at home. Shaktar were tricky ,lively and the better team. They rattled Buffons crossbar toward the end and took the lead in Turin. An expertly crafted equaliser by Bonucci the centre back levelled the tie for Juve. Pirlo with a low flat corner in set piece mastered from the training ground. Shaktar had the better of the match and the next to ties has to be 6 points for the Bianconeri. Then its a tricky tie to Donetsk and Chelsea in Turin. You cant be complacent in Europe.
Look at Bayern .They were beaten by Ukrainian outfite Bate. 3-1. Who would have thought. Madrid were clinical with Ronaldo firing a hatrick .Messi sprung two assists to give Barcelona victory. Arsenal and Chelsea were emphatic and Man City laboured to a draw in Manchester against a tough Dortmund. Europe is tough and after two matchdays teams must now shift into gear mentally and physically
