Juventus sink to 17-year Champions League low with toothless display in Barcelona defeat

Juventus sunk to a near-two-decade Champions League low in a defeat to Barcelona on Wednesday, as the Bianconeri saw their mixed start to the season compounded with a humiliating result on home soil against Lionel Messi and Co.

Andrea Pirlo's side may have snatched another Serie A crown last term but it very well looks like it could be a different story this time around as they continue to struggle to rediscover their best form under their new manager.

Though their 2-0 loss to the Blaugranna represented their first such result of the campaign, the manner of their capitulation to a visiting side who themselves have been off the pace in the midst of protracted off-field issues will undoubtedly have touched a nerve for the faithful that usually fill Allianz Stadium to the brim.
