Juve needed a good start - Vialli

The Bianconeri began their European campaign with a disappointing draw against Copenhagen but the ex-Italy striker was pleased with Carlos Tevez's performances
Former Juventus striker Gianluca Vialli believes it was vital for the Bianconeri to make a strong start to their Champions League campaign.

The Italian champions began their campaign with a 1-1 draw against Copenhagen in Denmark, despite having a number of chances.

And Vialli believes that a good win would have been an ideal way to kick off their campaign in Europe's top competition.

"It's a shame about the result," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"A convincing opening game victory would have been an ideal start to a Champions League campaign."

Vialli went on to praise the performance of Carlos Tevez in Copenhagen due to his movement and creative influence.

I really liked Tevez," he continued. "His performance was positive even if he didn't manage to score.

"He moved around a lot, he created some dangerous moments, but he – like the rest of the side – was just unfortunate."
