Árbitro

Danny Makkelie (Países Bajos). T.A.: Diego Costa / Matuidi y Cuadrado.

Atletico Madrid came from two goals down to draw with Juventus in what turned out to be an exciting clash in Champions League Group D.

A dull first half exploded after the break, when Juan Cuadrado curled home brilliantly and Blaise Matuidi headed in the second for the visitors.

However Maurizio Sarri’s side collapsed in the final stages in a fiery Wanda Metropolitano who urged their team on.

Stevan Savic pulled one back and Hector Herrera, on as a substitute, nabbed a 90th minute equaliser.

Aaron Ramsey made his Juventus debut in the 86th minute, but it wasn’t a happy one.
