Juventus GM Marotta left upset with tiny Champions League crowd

Juventus GM Beppe Marotta was left disappointed with their poor home crowd for last night's Champions League debut at their new stadium.

Juve finished the game 1-1 against Shakhtar Donetsk.

"In truth, 30,000 paying attendees are a considerable number of people. We have many supporters who live outside the city and it is Tuesday, so that creates problems," the director general told Sky Sport Italia.

"Perhaps we deserved a different atmosphere, but we know there are many watching at home, just as the passion of those in the stadium will be felt."
