Manniger – 6: Didn’t have too many saves to make and that is testament to how solid his defenders infront of him were.

Grygera – 7: Charged forward with enthusiasm early in the game, but stayed back in his own half once the match was sewn up. Did allow Heinze to sneak in behind him to deliver the cross for
Madrid’s goal.

Chiellini – 8.5: Ever present at the back. Shadowed Higuaín closely and was still available to cut out any potentially harmful balls into the box.

Legrottaglie – 6: So good was Chiellini that Legro didn’t need to do much but make up the numbers at the back. Had to be taken off at the break with an injury.

Molinaro – 7: Never did step out of his own half. Very conservative and kept it very tight at the back. Had to stay sharp in the closing stages to keep a tight leash on Robben.

Marchionni 6: Did not see much of him. Quietly pulled the strings from midfield to launch whatever counter-attacking opportunity Juve had.

Sissoko – 8.5: Covered more territory than any other player on the pitch. Won every tackle, recovered every ball, got stuck in to every challenge. Without doubt a Man of the Match performance.

Marchisio – 5.5: A subdued performance but that was his duty… the supporting act to Sissoko. Had to leave the pitch in the first half after colliding with the Malian.

Nedvěd – 7: Hung quietly down the left flank and happily waited for the ball to come to him. Provided the pin-point cross for Amauri to head in the second goal.

Del Piero – 7: Cannavaro warned that a player like Alex could score from anywhere, anytime and he did just that with a superb strike to open scoring. Faded away towards the end of the game but no one would really care about that, considering the goal he scored.

Amauri – 7.5: Made the assist for the first goal and got one of his own and a crucial one, too, it proved to be at the end. A constant menace to the Madrid backline, although he didn’t test Casillas too much.


Salihamidžić 6: Played a more advanced, attacking role than the man he replaced, Marchisio. Tried to conjure a few tricks with his fancy footwork put failed miserably.

Mellberg 5.5: Very casual in his defending. Constantly left players unmarked.

Iaquinta – 5: Barely had a meaningful touch of the ball in the ten minutes he was on.


Casillas – 5.5: Had a clear, unblocked view of Del Piero’s shot and even though it was coming at speed with a lot of swerve, he should have attempted a diving save.

Sergio Ramos – 6: Looked very nervous in the opening exchanges. Gradually grew into the game with a few threatening runs into the opposition box but still not his usual bullish self.

Cannavaro – 5: His slack marking allowed Del Piero to slip away from his sight to score the pivotal opener. Wasn’t easy for him to play in this sort of environment but he did not make any further glaring mistakes after the first goal.

Pepe – 5: Carelessly gave away the ball deep in his own half that led to the second goal. Other than that, he looked solid in the air and he wasn’t afraid to roam forward to help out in attack.

Heinze – 6: Caught hideously out of position several times and left holes down his flank. Left Amauri completely unmarked at the back post. He did atone for that by supplying the cross for Van Nistelrooy’s goal.

Sneijder – 7: Ran a lot in the first half but saw little of the ball. Made a massive improvement in the second and bombarded the Juve goal with shots and crosses.

Gago – 6.5: Like Sissoko, he ran tireless to clean up in midfield. But he couldn’t provide that extra spark in attack like he normally would during those times of desperation.

Van der Vaart – 5.5: Had a number of long range efforts come close… but his deliveries were a huge let-down. His inability to run past and draw out defenders was his biggest weakness. Ran out of steam in the second half.

Higuaín – 5: Just could not get into the game. Shackled tightly by Chiellini and never allowed an inch of space to run.

Van Nistelrooy 6.5: Completely out of tune. Did almost nothing for an entire hour but still managed to pop up with the consolation goal with a typical bullet of a header.

Raúl – 5.5: The most active of the three forwards but even then, he was merely running like a headless chicken. Never got the service and had to drop down to find the ball on his own.


Robben – 6.5: Made an immediate impact upon coming on. Gave the team more width and speed. Would have been a certain starter had it not been for his lack of fitness.

Drenthe – 5: Was supposed to bring the same energy and spark on the other side of the flank, but he never had the confidence to run with the ball.

Sang Nyonya Besar Kembali Kedalam Trek...

Kegagalan di Serie A menjadi pemicu pasukan Banconeri untuk membuat kejutan di Liga Champions. Dan, mereka berhasil membuktikannya dengan membuat tim tamu Real Madrid kembali ke Spanyol tanpa satu poin pun.

Dalam pertandingan yang disaksikan langsung oleh presiden UEFA Michel Platini itu, Claudio Ranieri menurunkan Alessandro del Piero (foto), dan Amauri Carvalho untuk mendobrak pertahanan Fabio Cannavaro dan kawan-kawan. Sementara Iker Casillas harus diuji oleh ketajaman Raul Gonzles, Ruud van Nistelrooy, dan Gonzalo Higuan.

Tidak berselang lama, baru lima menit pertandingan bergulir, Del Piero, pemain yang mengantarkan kemenangan atas FC Zenit St. Petersburg langsung membuat kejutan dengan tendangan khas spektakulernya dari jarak 25 meter melalui kaki kanannya. Iker Casillas belum mampu melakukan penyelamatan.

Madrid merasa kecolongan. Serangan langsung dilancarkan melalui beberapa pemainnya seperti Rafael van der Vaart, dan Nistelrooy. Belum ada perubahan. Kedudukan bertahan 1-0 di babak pertama.

Belum lagi melakukan pembalasan, Amauri sudah membuat tim tamu tidak berkutik. Adalah sundulan Amauri hasil umpan dari Pavel Nedved yang mengecoh Casillas untuk kedua kalinya pada menit ke-49.

Bukan Madrid kalau tidak terus menyerang meski sudah kedodoran 2-0. Pencetak gol cepat pada laga derby La Liga lalu Ruudtje berhasil memperkecil kedudukan melalui sundulannya yang langsung bersarang di jala Alex Manninger. Hal itu terjadi pada menit ke-66.

Namun, waktu tidak banyak bagi Madrid untuk menyamakan kedudukan atau bahkan mengubah kedudukan. 2-1 untuk Juventus. Dengan demikian, Juventus langsung bertengger di puncak klasemen Grup H.
