Atletico Madrid 2-2 Juventus: Maurzio Sarri’s side relinquish two goal lead – Champions League

Hector Herrera scored a late fine header in second-half stoppage time as Juventus relinquished a two-goal lead to draw their opening Champions League group stage game with Atletico Madrid.

Juan Cuadrado gave Juve the lead at the Wanda Metropolitano; producing a fierce strike into the top corner which left Jan Oblak rooted to the spot. Blaise Matuidi doubled their advantage with a close range header on 65 minutes, heading home from Alex Sandro’s cross.

The hosts pulled one back on 70 minutes when defender Stefan Savic headed in from an inventive free-kick, and executed another perfect set-piece just seconds before full-time. Substitute Herrera fires past Wojciech Szczesny to earn a well deserved point.
