    A man-of-the-match display from the Swede between the sticks. Showed brilliant reflexes and agility to deny Juventus on numerous occasions and helped his side to hold on to a valuable point.

  • Lars Jacobsen

    Lars Jacobsen

    Often struggled to keep tight to Peluso but did help to hold a well-organised defensive line which caught Tevez and Quagliarella offside several times.

  • Olof Mellberg

    Olof Mellberg

    A solid and assured display against his former club, made possible by a series of well-timed tackles and crucial headers.

  • Pierre Bengtsson

    Pierre Bengtsson

    Made a fantastic contribution in the first half by providing a good attacking outlet on the overlap. His teasing free kick set up Copenhagen's opener.

  • Ragnar Sigurdsson

    Ragnar Sigurdsson

    Struck up a good understanding with Mellberg although he did struggle with Quagliarella's movement and aerial prowess in the second half.

    The Costa Rican produced a hard-working display to help Copenhagen dominate the midfield battle in the first half.

  • Claudemir

    3.50

    Claudemir

    Showed his Brazilian flair with a series of neat skills and footwork. Contributed to Copenhagen's successful pressing game which helped to restrict Pirlo's impact.

  • Thomas Delaney
    0
    0
    3.00

    Thomas Delaney

    Tracked back time and time again to help out his defence and was responsible for marking Tevez when the Argentine dropped deep, which he did to good effect.

  • Daniel Braaten

    3.50

    Daniel Braaten

    The 31-year-old impressed on his first start for the club with a series of dangerous runs cutting in from the left.

  • Fanendo Adi

    3.00

    Fanendo Adi

    The club's top goalscorer this season struggled to threaten Buffon in the Juventus net but his constant running and willingness to work for the team caused the defence problems.

  • Nicolai Jörgensen
    1
    0
    3.50

    Nicolai Jörgensen

    Was rewarded for his persistence with a goal in the first half when he showed good predatory instinct to poke home Bengtsson's cross from close range.

Substitutions

    Georg Margreitter

    Was introduced with moments to spare in a bid to help Copenhagen hold on to a valuable point.

  • Rurik Gislason

    Rurik Gislason

    Helped to shore up the Copenhagen midfield and he produced a crucial block late on to deny Chiellini.

  • Youssef Toutouh

    Youssef Toutouh

    Gave Copenhagen some fresh legs in midfield but he had little time to make an impact.

  • Gianluigi Buffon

    3.00

    Gianluigi Buffon

    He was relatively untested between the sticks although he did show good command of his area from crosses. Was let down by his defence for Jorgensen's opener.

  • Angelo Ogbonna
    0

    2.50

    Angelo Ogbonna

    Looked uncertain on his Champions League debut and failed to deal with Bengtsson's free kick which led to Copenhagen's opener.

  • Federico Peluso
    2
    0
    3.00

    Federico Peluso

    Impressed in Asamoah's absence and got into some good advanced positions down the left. His accurate crossing was always a threat and he was the architect for Quagliarella's equaliser.

  • Giorgio Chiellini

    1
    2.00

    Giorgio Chiellini Flop of the Match

    An uncharacteristically shaky performance from the Juventus stopper, whose game was marred by a series of defensive errors. Was dominant in the air, however.

  • Leonardo Bonucci
    1
    1
    2.50

    Leonardo Bonucci

    An uninspiring defensive display from the Bianconeri on the whole and Bonucci was given a harder game than he would perhaps have anticipated as Jorgensen and Adi caused him problems with their clever movement.

  • Stephan Lichtsteiner
    2
    0
    3.50

    Stephan Lichtsteiner

    A typical, tireless showing from the Swiss wing-back who was a constant threat down the right with his mazy dribbling and accurate crossing. Also tracked back brilliantly to aid the defence.

  • Andrea Pirlo
    2
    0
    2.50

    Andrea Pirlo

    Not a vintage performance from the veteran midfielder who struggled to penetrate the Copenhagen defence with his passing. Looked a bit leggy in the closing stages and is perhaps in need of a rest.

  • Arturo Vidal

    2.50

    Arturo Vidal

    The Chilean's recent goalscoring spree was brought to a halt this evening in a game where he struggled to make an impact offensively. However, his combative style and neat passing was crucial to Juventus' second-half fightback.

  • Paul Pogba

    3.00

    Paul Pogba

    It would be a surprise to see Marchisio waltz back into the starting line-up based on Pogba's form. Looked composed on the ball and his powerful approach helped Juventus to dominate the second half. However, he did miss a sitter to level the scores in the first half.

  • Carlos Tévez
    3
    1
    2.50

    Carlos Tévez

    Looked Juventus' most dangerous attacking threat with his clever movement and willingness to drop deep to collect the ball. However, he was well tracked by Delaney and lacked incision in the final third. Missed a glorious chance to win the match in stoppage-time.

  • Fabio Quagliarella
    3
    0
    3.50

    Fabio Quagliarella

    Was selected ahead of Vucinic and found himself well marshalled by Mellberg and Sigurdsson throughout the first half. However, he was impressive after the break and repaid his coach's faith, levelling the scores with a neat finish before later heading against the crossbar.

Substitutions

  • Paolo De Ceglie

    Paolo De Ceglie

    Provided some fresh legs down the left late on and produced some teasing deliveries into the box.

  • Mauricio Isla

    Mauricio Isla

    Had little time to influence proceedings as he was introduced with only a few minutes to spare but did set up a glorious chance which Tevez spurned in stoppage time.

  • Sebastian Giovinco

    0
    3.00

    Sebastian Giovinco

    Was introduced in place of Quagliarella late on but failed to seize his opportunity when it came, missing a presentable one-on-one chance to give Juventus the win.
