FC Shakhtar Donetsk

Juventus feel they are still finding their way in Group E after a 1-1 draw at home against FC Shakhtar Donetsk, whose coach Mircea Lucescu felt his side "deserved to win" in Turin.

Mircea Lucescu, Shakhtar coach, says:  
We knew perfectly how Juventus played. Also we had a good confidence in our abilities. We controlled the match – we had the advantage in terms of possession and we made Juventus run a lot. That was very important. I knew that Juventus were a very aggressive team, so our idea was to make them run without ball. We had more chances to score than they did. I am very glad about the way we played, even more than about the result. Now we have a game against Chelsea to come, and obviously we'll try to win it.
