Juve president Andrea Agnelli had been busy defending the decision to charge an average of 51 euros a ticket for the match against the Ukrainian side on Tuesday, a game the Italian champions drew 1-1.

Despite it being the second lowest attended match at the Juventus Stadium - a Coppa Italia match against Bologna last season attracted fewer fans - only four matches have earned more money.

In contrast, Milan have offered fans of their club a mini-season ticket for their trio of Champions League home games at the San Siro at around the same cost of a single ticket for the Juventus match.
