Dusan Vlahovic scored the opening goal in the first minute for Juventus. Later, in the 66th minute of the second half, Daniel Parejo scored the equaliser for the Yellow Submarine. The fixture is still not decided as it is a draw. Both teams have an equal chance of winning this fixture.
The Champions League has scrapped the away goal rule this campaign, so Juventus won’t have the upper hand going into the second leg. Villareal will travel to Italy to play the second leg of this fixture, which will be played on March 17th, in Juventus.
Juventus is currently in 4th position in the Italian top flight. Last season, they lost the league to Internazionale. While Villareal are in 6th place in La Liga after the slow start of their campaign, they are 18 points behind La Liga leaders Real Madrid and three points behind fourth-placed Barcelona.
