Juventus Beats Olympiakos (video)

Juventus claimed a spot in the last 16 of the Champions League on Tuesday after comfortably seeing off Olympiakos 2-0 at the Georgios Karaiskakis stadium in Piraeus, in their final Group D match.

With Barcelona already through, the result saw the Greek team end its European run without a victory in Group D. Third-place Sporting Lisbon continues in the Europa League.

Goals from Juan Cuadrado and substitute Federico Bernardeschi, proved the difference between the two teams.

Cuadrado lunged forward to meet a cross from Alex Sandro and beat Olympiakos goalkeeper Silvio Proto in the 15th minute.

With eight minutes remaining, substitute El Fardou Ben tried to grab a point for Olympiakos but his header hit the bar.

The hosts tired toward the end of the game, leaving Bernardeschi with little to do for the second goal in the 90th minute.
