Soccer: Juve find form in UCL after poor start in Serie A

Turin giants thump Malmo 3-0, Atalanta draw 2-2 at Villarreal

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 15 - Juventus got back to form in their Champions League opener on Tuesday, thumping Malmo 3-0 away, after the Turin giants picked up just one point from their first three Serie A games.
    First half goals by Alex Sandro, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata gave Juve a much-needed victory in Sweden.
    "The Champions League opener is never straightforward," said Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri.
    "We were also coming into it after a not-so-easy period.
    "There's room for improvement in terms of possession, but there were still positives in that area".
    Atalanta started their Champions League campaign with an entertaining 2-2 draw at Villarreal.
    Italy's two other teams in Europe's premium club competition, Inter and AC Milan, respectively entertain Real Madrid and visit Liverpool later on Wednesday. (ANSA).
