Mario Mandzukic's 84th-minute header earned Juventus a much-needed home victory over Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League. With both sides having already beaten Olympiacos and lost to Barcelona, this was a crucial game in what appears a race for second spot in Group D. Sporting went ahead in the 12th minute through an Alex Sandro own goal but Miralem Pjanic equalised in the first half and, just when it looked like Juventus would have to settle for a draw, Mandzukic secured a victory. Massimiliano Allegri's side have wobbled in Serie A recently, failing to beat Atalanta after taking a lead and then losing at home to Lazio at the weekend. And their woes deepened with an opening goal for Sporting that was a personal horror show for Sandro. Having allowed a Bruno Fernandes through ball to reach Gelson Martins, the defender then diverted the ball into his own net after Gianluigi Buffon pushed it against him in saving the shot. Juventus responded well and Rui Patricio needed to be alert to keep out a Sami Khedira shot that was heading for the bottom corner.
