Del Piero's stunning brace steers Juve through

Two superb goals by Alessandro Del Piero handed Juventus a 2-0 win at Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday and a place in the knockout stage with two games to spare.

Holders Manchester United, former winners Bayern Munich and Ligue 1 champions Olympique Lyon moved a step closer to the last 16 but Arsenal still have work to do after a 0-0 home draw with Fenerbahce.

Del Piero inspired double European champions Juventus with a low left-footed drive from the edge of the penalty box in the 17th minute and sealed the win with a trademark free kick midway through the second half.

Del Piero was delighted to score in front of new Argentina coach Diego Maradona was in the crowd to watch the game.

"Maradona was in the stands? I am happy to have scored in front of him. I hope he comes to watch us more often," joked Del Piero. "I am proud of the applause I received at the Bernabeu, an incredible stadium and an extremely important one. You live for these kinds of emotions."

Juventus top Group H with 10 points from four matches, Real have six while Zenit St Petersburg are on four after a 2-0 triumph at bottom club BATE Borisov.

United needed a late header from Ryan Giggs to salvage a 1-1 draw at Celtic in Group E. Villarreal are level with the holders on eight points after a 2-2 draw at AaB Aalborg.

Celtic and Aalborg have two points each.

Group F took on a similar look after Bayern drew 1-1 at Fiorentina while Lyon scored a goal in each half to beat Steaua Bucharest 2-0.

Bayern and Lyon are joint top on eight points, Fiorentina have three and Steaua one.

Arsenal lead Group G on eight points while Porto have six following a come-from-behind 2-1 win at Dynamo Kiev, who are still in contention with five points.
