Real Madrid drop to second in group H after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Juventus. The Merengues had not beaten their old rivals in Turin since 1962, and they fell behind in the fifth minute when Del Piero ran on to Amauri's return pass and fired a long shot past Casillas. Van der Vaart tried his luck two or three times before the beak, but Juve went further ahead when Amauri headed Nedved's cross in off the foot of Heinze just three minutes after the restart.
Sneijder and Van ver Vaart brought good saves out of Manninger, and Sneijder hit the post as Madrid came back, and Van Nistelrooy reduced the gap with a header from Heinze's cross midway through the second half. But the Italians closed ranks after that, and Bernd Schuster's side hardly had a look in for the rest of the game. Juventus move a point above Madrid in the table, but the Spaniards have a chance to turn that around in the Bernabeu in a fortnight's time.
