Crunch time in Champions League

8 Dec

The big clash today is between Bayern Munich and Juventus.  Bayern needs a win in Turin to advance, while a 0-0 draw is good enough to send Juve through to the next round.  In group C, Madrid and AC Milan hold the top spots, but that’s all up in the air if Marseille can beat Madrid.
