Champions League: Real Madrid overwhelms; Arsenal claws back

PIRAEUS, Greece (AP) — Pajtim Kasami scored in the first half as Olympiakos beat Juventus 1-0 in the Champions League Wednesday to share the Group A lead with last year's finalist Atletico Madrid.

The Swiss midfielder shot past Gianluigi Buffon in the 36th minute. Alejandro Dominguez found striker Kostas Mitroglou who expertly passed the ball backward to set up the goal.

Dominguez cut open the Italian defense all evening at Karaiskaki stadium, missing two scoring chances himself and setting up Kasami in the 60th, when his shot rolled past the post.

Goalkeeper Roberto heroically maintained Olympiakos' lead as Juventus piled on pressure in the last 25 minutes, twice stopping goal bound shots from Alvaro Morata and also denying Carlos Tevez.
