3. EUROPE: Bayern ends drought in Italy
Bayern Munich ended an 18-year drought on Italian soil when the German
champion beat Inter Milan, 2-0, Wednesday to go on top in Group B of the UEFA
Late goals by Peruvian striker Claudio
Pizarro and German international
Lukas Podolski gave Bayern its first win in Italy since it beat
Inter in the third round of the UEFA Cup in the 1988-89 season.
''It's a special win,'' acknowledged Bayern coach Felix Magath. ''I'm not
the kind of person who sets much store by statistics but tonight we've
broken our run of not winning in Italy and against a great team too.''
Barcelona star Samuel Eto'o
suffered a potentially serious injury to
his right knee in the defending champion's 1-1 tie with Werder Bremen.
Spanish media quoted a Barcelona team doctor as saying Eto'o could be
out for 2-3 months.
Wins by Chelsea and Liverpool pushed the record of England's four
representatives to seven wins and one tie in the first two days of the
UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE
(Day 2, Wednesday)
Werder Bremen 1 Barcelona 1
Levski Sofia 1 Chelsea 3
Sparta Moscow 1 Sporting Lisbon 1
Inter Milan 0 Bayern Munich 2
Liverpool 3 Galatasaray 2
Bordeaux 0 PSV Eindhoven 1
Shakhtar Donetsk 2 Olympiakos 2
Valencia 2 Roma 1
