TURIN, Italy -- Juventus bounced back from its first Serie A loss in two seasons with a comfortable 4-0 win over Danish side Nordsjaelland on Wednesday to boost its chances of advancing in the Champions League.

Claudio Marchisio put the Italian champions ahead six minutes in, Arturo Vidal doubled the lead in the 23rd and Sebastian Giovinco added another for the hosts in the 37th. Substitute Fabio Quagliarella sealed the victory in the 75th.

Compared to the 1-1 draw between the clubs two weeks ago, this contest was completely one-sided, with Alessando Matri hitting the post for Juventus in the 26th.

Juventus has six points in Group E, while Nordsjaelland is last with one point.

On Saturday, Juve's 49-match winning run in Serie A ended with a 3-1 home loss to Inter Milan.
