Borussia Dortmund unveiled a huge banner ahead of their Champions League second leg clash with Juventus.

The banner showed a scene from the club's victorious campaign in the competition in 1997 - when they beat tonight's opponents 3-1 in Munich.

Although it was clearly supposed to inspire Jurgen Klopp's men on the pitch, they were 2-1 down after the first leg in Turin, Carlos Tevez put paid to any notions that they would make a quick comeback.

Inside of three minutes the former Manchester City and Manchester United forward picked up a loose ball nearly 30 yards from goal, and walloped a strike past Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller and into the top corner.

Not the perfect start....
