In Turin, sixty-five thousand fans turned out to see defending champions Juventus settle for their third draw of the season against A.C. Milan. Milan, playing in the dark striped shirts, opened the attack early on in the match. A free kick was passed on to Butch Wilkins, who shot from outside the penalty area, hitting the post. But it was Juventus who opened the scoring. French World Cup star Michel Platini picked up the ball after a goalmouth scramble and volleyed it home to put Juventus into the lead in the 32nd minute. Juventus could have gone further ahead from a corner but failed to find the net. Milan salvaged a draw from the match just four minutes before the end. They attacked up the left wing, and the ball fell to Pietro Paolo Virdis, who celebrated his equaliser by running off the pitch towards the crowd.
