    How Juventus' Champions League opponents faired, two weeks before the final group game

    Barcelona had a top of the table clash in La Liga this weekend, as they took on Valencia at the Mestella, in what was first vs second. The game kicked off at the same time as the Bianconeri took to the field to face Crotone, and just as Mattia De Sciglio was putting Juventus 2-0 up with a thunderous strike, Valencia's Rodrigo put the home side ahead with both goals coming on the 60-minute mark. However, Barcelona managed to find an equaliser in the 82nd minute, when Jordi Alba got on the end of a long ball from Lionel Messi to slot past former Juve goalkeeper, Neto to tie the game up at 1-1. The result sees Barcelona maintain a four-point gap on their closest challengers, Valencia.

    Meanwhile in Greece, Juve's final group opponents on 5 December won 3-1 away at Kerkyra. The home side took the lead in the 16th minute through Christos Gromitsaris, but Olympiacos equalised in the second half after a goal from Pape Abou Cisse. The visitors then went on to wrap up the match with two goals in three minutes, after efforts from Uros Durdevic and Marko Marin in the 65th and 68th minute to go top of the Greek Superleague.

    Finally, in Portugal it was a win for Sporting CP away to Pacos Ferreira. Argentine, Rodrigo Battaglia opened the scoring in the 20th minute, before Gelson Martins doubled the lead in the 75th minute. Marco Baixinho scored late on to ensure a nervy finish, but the visitors were able to hold on to claim the victory that sees them in second place in the table, two points behind leaders Porto.
