MILAN - Juventus needs a win to stay in touch with the top two teams in Group A of the Champions League.Visiting Olympiakos has the same amount of points as Atletico Madrid, with Juventus three points behind.Atletico, last years runner-up, visits Malmo, which earned its only points by beating Olympiakos the last time it played at home in the competition.But the Swedish team lost in Madrid 5-0.Here are some things to know about Tuesdays games:___PIRLO TO THE RESCUEAndrea Pirlo is coming into form just as Juventus needs him the most.The midfielder missed the first month of the season with a bruised hip after getting injured in a preseason match.Pirlo scored his first goal of the season on Saturday with a free kick which helped Juventus to a 2-0 win at Empoli and sent the three-time defending champions three points clear at the top of the Serie A standings.Im improving, Im working hard during the week and I feel better every match, Pirlo said. (The win) was an important sign, mainly for ourselves, that enables us to prepare as best we can for Tuesdays game. Its like a final and we must put in a great performance because only one result will do.___NO COMPLEX FOR JUVEJuventus coach Massimiliano Allegri has no problem with the Champions League.The Italian side is aiming for a fourth straight Serie A title this season and leads league, three points clear of Roma. However, in Europe it is a different story and Allegri knows anything but a win would leave Juventus on the verge of elimination from the group stage for the second straight season.To improve we have to stay calm and not let ourselves be influenced by what people say, Allegri said. Theres no European complex here. We do, however, have just three points and we need to put that right.Its 90 minutes in which we are playing to go through. Winning is a must tomorrow.___AERIAL ATLETICOAtletico Madrid has been honing its finishing skills as it rises to second-place in the Spanish league.Left winger Antoine Griezmann scored his first two goals this season to give coach Diego Simeones squad a 4-2 win over Cordoba.For his second, Griezmann jumped for a header to turn in Juanfran Torres cross at the near post.Atletico has scored 12 of its 19 league goals with headers___TROUBLE AT HOME?Olympiakos coach Michel Gonzalez denies holding back on domestic games to seek an advantage against Juventus on Tuesday.The Greek team has already pulled off surprise home wins over the Italian champions and 2014 Champions League finalist Atletico Madrid to share first place with the Spanish side in Group A. But the team slipped five points behind leader PAOK in the domestic league after being held 0-0 by 10-man Asteras.We didnt hold anything back. We dont have that luxury, Gonzalez said. We view each game as our most important.Our problem isnt how to deal with defensive opponents, but our finishing. We can get through the lines of the opposing team. But then we deliver bad crosses and bad shots on goal.Olympiakos travels to Turin with a full squad after resting Champions League standout Alejandro Dominguez and Dutch striker Ibrahim Afellay over the weekend.___OLSEN BACKMalmo goalkeeper Robin Olsen is likely to play against Atletico Madrid despite coming off with a thigh injury in the Swedish teams final league match of the season on Saturday.Team doctors say they count on Olsen starting the game on Tuesday even if he hasnt fully recovered.The Danish goalkeeper has been crucial to Malmos strong performance at home in qualifying matches and the 2-0 group win over Olympiakos on Oct. 1. But like the rest of the team, his confidence took a beating in Madrid two weeks ago when Atletico trounced Malmo 5-0 with five second-half goals. Air Jordan Retro 13 Cheap .

Jordan 13 For Sale Cheap . -- Hee Young Park topped the leaderboard at 8 under Friday in the suspended second round of the Kingsmill Championship.DENVER - Peter Forsberg spent his playing days thinking about winning, not about the Hall of Fame.On Thursday, the former Colorado Avalanche star reflected on the honour he received earlier this week when he was inducted into the exclusive hockey club.My kids and grandkids are going to go there and say, Peter was a pretty good player. Its an awesome feeling, and seeing my name and picture up there with the others was unbelievable, Forsberg said.Forsberg is the sixth Avalanche player to go into hockeys Hall of Fame. He joined Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy, Ray Bourque, Jari Kurri and Rob Blake, who was also inducted Monday night in Toronto.He is the third Swedish player to become a member, joining Anders Borje Salming — inducted in 1996 after 17 NHL seasons — and Mats Sundin, who entered the Hall in 2012.Back home they realize how hard it is to get in because there have only been a couple to go in, Forsberg said. Its been a big thing in the papers back home, and overall Swedish people start to know what it is now and how hard it is and what you have to achieve to get in there.His competitive nature got him into the Hall of Fame. Forsberg enjoyed his 10-plus years in Colorado — where he was part of two Stanley Cup-winning teams — because he wanted to win more than anything.There was no other goal in this organization than to win the Cup, he said. I didnt think about the Hall of Fame or anything, it was just winning games.Forsberg achieved plentyy in his international and NHL career despite foot and ankle ailments that plagued him for years.dddddddddddd His shootout goal in the title game of the 1994 Olympics won the gold for Sweden and was commemorated on a postage stamp.He came to the NHL in 1995 as a rookie for the Quebec Nordiques, and his early season struggles had him thinking he was going to be sent down by coach Marc Crawford.I thought Crawford was going to send me down after 12, 13 games, Forsberg said. He called me in the office, Peter, youve got to start playing. Im not going to send you down. I didnt bring you over here to send you down.That year turned out to be pretty good I got the Calder (rookie of the year).He played most of his career with the Avalanche, who moved to Denver after his rookie season. He was a part of Stanley Cup winners in 1996 and 2001, although he missed the last two rounds of the 2001 playoffs after sustaining a ruptured spleen.His problematic foot injuries forced Forsberg to miss the following regular season but he returned to lead the NHL in playoff scoring in 2002.The following year he won the Hart Trophy as the league MVP, but it was the last time he played more than 60 games in an NHL season.He won another Olympic gold with Sweden in 2006.Forsberg retired for the first time after playing nine games for Colorado in the 2007-08 season. He tried a comeback in February 2011, but after two games he retired for the final time.
