[UCL] MD5 Wednesday Review

Milan 1-1 MarseilleAC Milan and Juventus have work to do on the final matchday if they are to reach the last 16 stage of the UEFA Champions League after missing the chance of qualification against French opponents tonight.

Milan 1-1 Marseille
Group C will go down to the wire after AC Milan and Marseille shared a hard-fought draw at San Siro. In an open match Marco Borriello's fine early strike was cancelled out by Lucho and despite late chances at either end, nothing could separate the sides. Borriello's opener was worthy of the occasion, and though it arrived after just ten minutes it reflected the hosts' initial supremacy. Yet if the Rossoneri looked strong going forward, they were unpicked all too easily at the back as Marseille levelled inside six minutes with a goal that owed as much to Mamadou Niang's pace and power as it did to Lucho's cool finish. The draw left Milan needing a win at Zurich in a fortnight to guarantee a place in the first knockout round.

Second-half headers from Fernando and Marouane Chamakh ensured Bordeaux progressed to the last 16 of the Champions League as Group A winners but Juventus missed the chance of qualification. The French outfit, unbeaten and already qualified, put their domestic toils behind them to seal a deserved success against an off-colour Juve side who must now avoid defeat at home to Bayern Munich, who beat Maccabi Haifa 1-0, to book their place in the knockout stages.
