In their very first UEFA Women’s Champions League match, Juventus Women showed every ounce of Fino Alla Fine spirit as they came from behind to rescue a draw against Brondby on Wednesday.
It was a night to remember in particular for Barbara Bonansea, who scored both of the Bianconere’s goals in Novara. Both strikes, it must be said, were right from the top drawer as well.
The forward created history by scoring her side's first goal in the competition, when she arrowed an unstoppable, low shot into the bottom corner to put Juventus Women in front just moments before half-time.
It gave the hosts a deserved lead after Valentina Cernoia and Cristiana Girelli both had opposition keeper, Katrine Abel, on her toes with powerful efforts from distance.
