Juve’s campaign got off to a poor start with a 3-0 loss away to Barcelona and they have not looked at their best in home victories over Olympiakos (2-0) and Sporting.
However, the Italians came on strong in the second half against Sporting and merited the result after winning the shot count 17-4.
Juve are slowly working their way into the tournament and it should suit them that the onus is on Sporting to throw men forward and push for the victory.
