Celtic's dream of Champions League glory was quickly dimmed as Juventus arrived at Celtic Park and dismantled Neil Lennon's side 3-0. The three vital away goals definitely put the Glasgow side at a heightened disadvantage, yet there should still be a spirited performance out of the Scottish club in the return leg of this fixture.

Andrea pours himself a cheeky little glass of Mad Dog 20/20
When you think about it, it makes perfect sense that a creature as cultured, sophisticated and precision-bearded as Andrea Pirlo dabbles in fine wine, though we weren't aware that the Juventus string-puller actually owns or, more specifically, his family owns a vineyard in the hills aroundBrescia in northern Italy.
As if the resemblance of the beard wasn't enough, Andrea Pirlo's officially on a one-man mission to be confused with Jesus. A short clip has emerged of Pirlo at his own wine vineyard. Not that an Italian footballer having his own vineyard is some great surprise, but the whole water into wine thing and all.
Francesco Totti's powerful second-half strike earned Aurelio Andreazzoli his first win as AS Roma coach, the Giallorossi beating Juventus 1-0 at the Stadio Olimpico. The defeat means that Juve's lead atop Serie A could be reduced to two points on Sunday.
Restored to the Roma goal, Maarten Stekelenburg was making only his second Serie A appearance since October, but the Dutch No1 kept the hosts in the game.

This Saturday, AS Roma will host Serie A league leaders Juventus at the Stadio Olimpico. Roma recently fired manager Zdenek Zeman who had his team producing attack-minded football, highlighted by a 4-2 win over rivals AC Milan.
AS Roma fans are champing at the bit after seeing their club go winless in league play since the start of the new year, but Michael Bradley and the rest of the Giallorossi can change all that with a win this weekend.
Roma will try to pick up their first victory since December, a stretch of even matches without a victory, when they host Juventus in one of the weekend's bigger match-ups.
Among the numerous one-on-one battles in Glasgow, as Celtic entertained Champions League betting favourites, Juventus, on Tuesday night, one stood out as maybe the most captivating midfield duel of the season. While Gary Hooper and Stephan Lichtsteiner wrestled each other in the penalty area and Gigi Buffon handled Kris Commons' long-range efforts with ease, in the middle of the park, Scott Brown and Andrea Pirlo, were going hell for leather.

Celtic FC have already climbed one massive hurdle in the 2012-13 Champions League by finishing second in their very tough group and qualifying for the knock-out phase.

A European clash against an Italian side will always remind Celtic FC's fans of their glorious past, when the Bhoys won the 1966-67's edition of the Champions League – then called European Champions Clubs' Cup – by beating Internazionale 2-1.

Since mid-December, the football world has been anxiously awaiting the onset of the Champions League Round of 16, especially Neil Lennon and his Celtic side. The Scottish champions likely enter their clash as the underdogs, and will look to prove a point to Italian giants Juventus.

After winning the 2011-12 Serie A league title and leading thus far this season, it is clear that Juventus is finally back. Struggling in the era post-Calciopoli match-fixing scandal, theBianconeri experienced a season relegated to Serie B before returning to the top of the Italian Serie A.

Compiling a starting XI from all of the best leagues around the world is difficult. Taking in consideration the league a player plays in, as well as their ability level are at the forefront of the equation. However, just because a player has a big name like a Vincent Komany or Gerard Pique, does not pencil their names into the squad, nor even a spot on the bench.

According to talkSPORT, Juventus have remained vigilant in their pursuit of Liverpool forward Luis Suarez as the Italian outfit are looking to seal the Uruguayan's signature in the summer. Liverpool would be very reluctant to sell Suarez in January considering the difficulties the Reds have had at the forward positions due to the injury to Italian international Fabio Borini.

When you have a resplendent beard fit for a deity, pass the ball around effortlessly like adivine Leonardo da Vinci brushstroke and score one of the most delicious spot-kicks of all time, you have every right to forget you are human. Alas, the mercurial Andrea Pirlo fell back to Earth at the weekend after launching [.
Every man and woman has obligations. Bearded Andrea Pirlo is no different. He is tasked with the duty to fight the tyranny of an unknown menace. To protect the world's depleted facial hair resources. To play football with orgasm-inducing skill. To make wine that gets people drunk in the classiest way possible.

In the hills of Brescia, Andrea Pirlo has a vineyard/secret bunker where he and his family make wine infused with the musk of his powerful beard. At the start of the video above, Pirlo tells you that this is something you didn't know about him.
This is my personal list of favourite players of 2012: 10) Cristiano Ronaldo: Ronaldo is one of the most gifted players of our time, but that is also what makes him so frustrating.

The worldwide players' union FIFPro and FIFA has announced the 15 midfielders shortlisted for the FIFA/FIFPro World XI 2012, part of the 55-player final shortlist to be revealed at a press conference in São Paulo on 29 November 2012.

You might not think that a man with a powerful beard and his own vineyard like Andrea Pirlo would have any time for video games, but you would be very, very wrong. The 33-year-old Juventus midfielder has a new biography out now entitled "I think therefore I play" and James Horncastle wrote an excellent piece for ESPN on a section in the book about Pep Guardiola, who tried to buy Pirlo from Milan when he was still at Barcelona.
