Juventus boss Fabio Capello grimly forecasted that his side would need a Delle Alpi destruction in the second leg to get past Tuesday night Champions League victors Arsenal.
The Gunners continued Juve’s shameful luck in England thanks to a pair of goals from Bianconeri castout Thierry Henry.
“The tie is still alive, but we need a big performance in Turin,” offered Capello. “We played well in the first half until Arsenal scored a goal we should not have conceded, and the second goal could also have been avoided.”
“After that, Arsenal played very well and they were very fresh because they had not played a match for nine days.”
