Juventus will host on Wednesday Villarreal in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16.

The first leg ended in 1-1 draw as the Italian champions will look for at least playing out a goalless draw to reach the quarter-finals.

What happened in the first leg?

Dušan Vlahović took just 33 seconds to announce himself on the UEFA Champions League stage, opening the scoring on his competition debut. The hosts dusted themselves down, though, and nearly drew level on 13 minutes but Giovani Lo Celso struck a post. The equaliser came midway through the second half, when Daniel Parejo met Étienne Capoue's perfectly weighted ball and swept in.
