[UCL] MD6 Tuesday Review

Juventus 1-4 Bayern MunichJuventus are out of the UEFA Champions League after Bayern Munich recorded a thumping 4-1 comeback win in Turin, while AC Milan survived another scare against Zurich to progress to the knockout stages.

Juventus 1-4 Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich reached the last 16 in scintillating style after coming from behind to complete a memorable victory at Juventus thanks to strikes by goalkeeper Hans-Jorg Butt, Ivica Olic, Mario Gomez and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk. Though David Trezeguet had given La Vecchia Signora the lead with a wonderful strike on 19 minutes Bayern, who required victory to reach the knockout stages, had dominated early on. The character of the German side withstood the setback, however, and Butt equalised from the penalty spot after Olic had been brought down. Early in the second half, despite the sustained resistance of Gianluigi Buffon, the lively Croatia striker pounced to turn the match on its head, Gomez and substitute Tymoshchuk adding goals in the final seven minutes to consign Juve, for whom this equalled their record home defeat in European competition, to the UEFA Europa League.

Zurich 1-1 MilanZurich 1-1 Milan
A fright night for AC Milan ended with a 1-1 draw and a place in the Champions League first knockout round after Zurich paid a high price for a single unfortunate challenge. Milan Gajic's superb 29th-minute free-kick for Zurich, who earned a shock 1-0 victory in Milan on Matchday 2, looked set to steer the eliminated Swiss champions to a repeat success. But on 63 minutes Alain Rochat felled Marco Borriello, meaning a red card and a penalty which Ronaldinho gratefully converted to settle nerves. Milan advance as Group C runners-up behind Real Madrid thanks to their 3-1 win at Marseille.
