Del Piero lead Juventus past Zenit

Bookmark and Share
TURIN, 17 September 2008 - Juventus won. And thanked Del Piero. A hard fought success against Zenit St Petersburg, in the Bianconeri's seasonal debut in the group stage of the Champions League. This was already a crucial match, considering that Real Madrid is also in the group. Juve did not sparkle, quite the contrary, but against a tough opponent, which made life difficult for long periods of the match, they nonetheless showed that they know how to win even on a quiet evening, as great teams do. It took a flash of brilliance. Created by the most charismatic of players, the captain. These three points are very precious. As precious as Buffon's save at 0-0, which averted disaster.

DEL PIERO - But Juve's goal came however, a couple of minutes later. And it had the most distinguished signature: Del Piero. He scored from a free-kick, which took a slight deflection. 1-0. Him again, the captain, the driving force. He pushed the play button and resumed his endless Champions League film, stuck on pause for two seasons, but through no fault of his. Denisov tried to spoil the party, but his diagonal shot went wide. The Bianconeri fans could celebrate.
