Unlike the previous match between these two teams in Denmark, FC Nordsjaelland didn't put up much of a fight against Juventus on Wednesday. The Bianconeri dominated the game from start to finish, running out very comfortable 4-0 winners.
Claudio Marchisio put his side in the lead in the 6th minute, finishing off a great team move. Andrea Pirlo got things going with a ball from the center of the pitch out to the right flank towards Mauricio Isla, who whipped a low cross into the penalty area. Marchisio was perfectly positioned and lost his marker before finishing at the near post.
Nordsjaelland's realistic chances of a comeback were killed off in the 23rd minute by Arturo Vidal. His initial shot was blocked, but he followed up on the effort and made a fantastic sliding tackle-turned-shot to win the ball off Kasper Lorenzen and direct it into the back of the net. Alessandro Matri hit the crossbar with a header three minutes later as Juventus kept the pressure on.
Late in the second half, Sebastian Giovinco sealed the win for Juventus with a fantastic strike. Picking up a pass from Pirlo, he ran at his man before looping an excellent finish to the far post, putting his side up 3-0. The second half was quiet as Juventus sat on their lead, but they did add one more goal, through Fabio Quagliarella in the 75th minute.
