Juventus 1-1 Cagliari

Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba was injured in the Champions League last-16 tie with Borussia Dortmund

Paul Pogba scored on his return from injury as Italian champions Juventus were held by struggling Cagliari.

Pogba opened the scoring with a 20-yard strike and came off in the second half before Luca Rossettini levelled late on from a rebound after hitting the post.

The France midfielder had been out for two months with a hamstring injury.

He will now be available for their Champions League semi-final second leg at Real Madrid on Wednesday as they defend a 2-1 lead.

Juventus, who clinched their fourth consecutive Serie A title last weekend, are chasing the treble. They face Napoli in the Coppa Italia final on 7 June.
