Antonio Conte's side put the pressure on their visitors right from the start, with Carlos Tevez showing his strength inside the area and connecting well with Fernando Llorente in the opening exchanges.

The Bianconeri's pressure finally paid off just before the half-hour mark when they were awarded a penalty.

Lars Jacobsen handled the ball inside the Copenhagen penalty box after being put under pressure by Paul Pogba, who was looking ready to pounce on Andrea Pirlo's delivery.

The referee had no hesitation in awarding Juve the spot kick that Arturo Vidal slammed home to put the hosts 1-0 up heading into the half-time interval.
