3. EUROPE: Bayern ends drought in Italy

MOST COMMENTED

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 Champions League.

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 group stage.
