Champions League: Juventus win Group A as Brugge hold Bayern

7 December 2005 22:46

TURIN/MUNICH, Dec 7 (SW) - Juventus finished first in Champions League Group A following a win at Rapid Wien, while Club Brugge held Bayern Munich to a draw in Belgium.

Rapid Wien - Juventus 1-3

Juventus needed 35 minutes to open the score in Austria. Striker Alessandro Del Piero took a free kick and saw the ball sailing over the wall and past the goalkeeper for 0-1.

It soon became clear that Rapid would end their European adventure with zero points, as the Italians added a second goal in the 42nd minute. A pass from Del Piero was received by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who then doubled the score with a strike past Payer.

And three minutes later, things got even worse for the hosts. Ibrahimovic had a shot on goal but instead of hitting the net, it ended up in front of Del Piero, who could easily score for 0-3.

The Austrians got one back in the 52nd minute. Juventus' defense failed to clear properly and the ball was headed back into the Italian penalty area. Kincl stood in the right place to put the ball past Abbiati.

Club Brugge - Bayern 1-1

All Bayern Munich had to play for was the first place in their group, and that appeared to be inspiring enough for Pizarro to open the score after 21 minutes. A Deisler free kick reached the Peruvian, who put the ball past Butina for 0-1.

But the Belgians, already certain of playing in the third round of the UEFA Cup, came back in the 32nd minute. Spanish striker Portillo levelled the score with a perfect strike past Kahn.

As Bayern failed to restore the lead, they finish second in this group with 13 points. Juventus are first with 15, while Club Brugge end with seven points. Rapid are stuck in last place with no points.
