Juventus open lead over Dortmund in tactical Champions League battle

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Borussia Dortmund need to rid themselves of basic errors, but Alejandro Moreno counters that Marco Reus' goal keeps the German side very much alive.

A thrilling match between two impressive sides, both Jurgen Klopp and Massimiliano Allegri approached the game with interesting and intelligent strategies. It was night where attacking the defensive weaknesses of the opponent was the priority and the result was a beautiful tactical encounter.

Juventus love nothing more than to play the ball out from the back, controlling the tempo and looking for the vertical passes forward until they reach the final third. The likes of Andrea Pirlo and Paul Pogba...

Dortmund woes on display as Juve's deadly counter proves decisive

Three quick thoughts from Tuesday night's Champions League round-of-16 first leg in Turin, where Juventus downed Borussia Dortmund 2-1.

1. Juventus use counter to effect but still lack quality

For most of the first half, be it with Andrea Pirlo or without -- the Italian left injured after 36 minutes -- Borussia Dortmund took the match to Juve. But two fantastic counterattacks paved the way for the Italians' deserved 2-1 win against the Bundesliga strugglers.

Remembering the rich, crazy history of Borussia Dortmund versus Juventus

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is confident his side can take a result from the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 clash with Borussia Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp says his club will have no added motivation when they meet Juventus in the UEFA Champions League last-16.
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri was pleased by his side's tenacity in their narrow victory over Atalanta.

The 1997 Champions League final was about 25 minutes old when I felt a tug on my sleeve. I looked down and noticed a steward trying to get my attention. "Excuse me, sir," he said. "Will you be standing on your seat for the entire game?"

I looked around. In this part of Munich's Olympic Stadium, the north curve, by and large everybody was standing on the plastic seats. One of the few exceptions was the elderly couple directly to my left. They were sitting down and, consequently, couldn't see...

Ambitous Man City and Juventus must deliver in this week's UCL matches

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini believes his side can beat Barcelona in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg, even without the suspended Yaya Toure.
Manchester City's Manuel Pellegrini, left, Juventus' Massimiliano Allegri, middle, and Arsenal's Arsene Wenger, right, all face pressure to push their clubs forward in Champions League after disappointments in last year's tournament.

Here are four storylines to watch for ahead of this week's Champions League matchups. 

1. Manchester City's reasons to be cheerful

Manchester City's cast list has barely changed, so logic would suggest the final outcome is unlikely to alter when the club faces Barcelona for a second successive season in the last-16 of the Champions League. Yet, City manager Manuel Pellegrini has genuine reason to hope the result can be different this time.

A year ago, it was Lionel Messi and his Barca pass...

Juventus must find a way to cope with Dortmund's pressure

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down Borussia Dortmund and Juventus' recent form, where he feels despite the "sky falling" domestically for Dortmund, they have proven to be a different side in the Champions League.

The greatest aspect of top-level European competition is the opportunity to witness contrasting footballing styles face one another; pleasingly, despite the globalisation of football and the increased movement of players and coaches across borders, obvious differences remain between Europe's best leagues.

The obvious example from this week's set of Champions League fixtures is the clash between Borussia Dortmund and Juventus in Turin on Tuesday night. Whereas some of the second round ties are frustratingly...

Echoes of the 1997 Champions League final as Juve prepare for Dortmund

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno explains why Borussia Dortmund pose a big threat to Juventus ahead of their first leg clash in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri was pleased by his side's tenacity in their narrow victory over Atalanta.

The challenge is mouth-watering. The anticipation is growing. The favourite? There isn't one. Juventus versus Borussia Dortmund is one of the most eagerly awaited matches of the Champions League and it's not only because the mere thought of it conjures up the familiar scent of nostalgia.

It was 1997 when the perennial German underdogs became winners of the Champions League against what was arguably Europe's best team, Juventus. While Corriere della Sera ran with the headline "Juve -- a night of tears...
