Champions League: Juventus 2-1 Borussia Dortmund

Juventus had to settle for a narrow first-leg lead after missing a several good chances against Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League last-16 tie.

Carlos Tevez put the Italians ahead after Roman Weidenfeller spilled at his feet, but Dortmund soon struck back.

Marco Reus exploited Giorgio Chiellini’s slip to scamper in and shoot home just three minutes later.

Alvaro Morata’s careful finish put Juve back in front and the hosts could have stretched away in the second half.

After the break, Tevez went close on three occasions, Chiellini rose unmarked to head over the top and Roberto Pereyra shot just wide.

But the Italians ultimately failed to exploit Dortmund’s fragility and will take only a one-goal advantage to Germany.

The win took the Serie A champions’ unbeaten home run to 47 games and they made the fast start that a simmering atmosphere at the Juventus Stadium demanded.

With defenders back in numbers there appeared little danger for Dortmund despite Morata escaping the attentions of his man on the left.

But the Spaniard’s well-hit shot and Dortmund goalkeeper Weidenfeller’s fumble presented Tevez with a simple finish five yards out.

A woeful run of domestic form left them bottom of the Bundesliga at the start of 2015 but Dortmund have kept faith with a pressing game and their energy soon delivered parity.

Chiellini lost his footing as he attempted to control a routine ball forward and Reus, who has recently agreed a contract extension with the Germans,  raced in on goal and coolly beat Gianluigi Buffon.

The visitors enjoyed more of the possession for the rest of the half but never looked secure at the back.

Leonardo Bonucci headed over from a good position for Juventus, and Dortmund were caught out again by a swift counter-attack just before the break as Morata was left free to side-foot home from six yards.

Dortmund continued to be undermined as Weidenfeller and his defence wobbled through to the end of the tie but, with an away goal secured, they will hope the Westfalenstadion can inspire them to the quarter-finals.

Champions League: Borussia Dortmund 2-0 Arsenal

Arsenal endured a chastening start to their Champions League group campaign after being overwhelmed by Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park.

Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck either side of half-time and the German club would have been more emphatic victors than 2-0 but for the reflexes of Wojciech Szczesny and their own wastefulness.

For the second time in two matches Danny Welbeck illustrated why his finishing is considered below par for a top forward by failing to convert a one-on-one with a goalkeeper.

With the match goalless and Arsenal under relentless attack, Welbeck managed to drag Aaron Ramsey’s clever pass wide with just Roman Weidenfeller to beat.

It was a key moment and the £16million signing from Manchester United, who had other chances to open his Gunners account, only enhanced concerns over his record in front of goal.

Had he scored it would have been a grave injustice, however, given that Arsenal’s back four were tormented throughout in a display that will see Arsene Wenger face renewed criticism for refusing to sign defensive reinforcements over the summer.

At times they were comically poor with Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker fully culpable, although they were offered little protection by Mikel Arteta, who was also exposed by the quick wits of Dortmund.

And in front of Arteta, Mesut Ozil once again drifted around aimlessly, contributing nothing until his second-half withdrawal.
