ROME - Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri and captain Gianluigi Buffon appear to be in disagreement on how to approach Tuesdays match against Atletico Madrid.A point will see Juve secure second place in Group A, and advance to the knockout round of the Champions League, while winning by a two-goal margin would earn the Bianconeri first place — leapfrogging Atletico in the process.We have to try and win by two goals, Allegri said of the match in Turin. We want to win, advance and try to finish first.Last seasons runner-up Atletico leads the group with 12 points, Juventus is next with nine, Olympiakos has six and Malmo trails with three.You can believe in anything in life but Im interested in advancing, said the 36-year-old Buffon, who has won just about everything in his glittered career except for the Champions League.If Juventus loses, Olympiakos can finish second with a win at Malmo due to its head-to-head record against the Italian side.Meanwhile, Malmoe can snatch third place and a Europa League spot with a win in Greece.___DEFENSIVE WALLBuffon and centre back Leonardo Bonucci have been the backbone of Juventus defensive wall lately.Since Juve edged Olympiakos 3-2 last month, the three-time defending Italian champion has won four matches and drawn once while scoring 14 goals and conceding just once.The lone goal conceded during that span came with reserve Marco Storari in goal.Bonucci has played every minute of Juves 19 matches this season, in all competitions, displaying not only defensive skills, but also ability with the ball.Bonucci has scored twice this season, including his late winner against Roma and for Italy in its European Championship qualifier against Norway.So its no wonder that Bonucci is reportedly attracting transfer interest from big English clubs and the likes of Bayern Munich.I would like to stay with Juventus for a while still, said Bonucci, whose contract expires in 2017.___MARGIN FOR ERRORAtletico is already through to the knockout rounds, and only needs to avoid a defeat by two goals to advance as the group winner.All that plays perfectly into Atleticos usual game plan of defending well and attacking when the chances come to strike from counterattacks and set pieces.Although Atletico will be without the injured Miranda, coach Diego Simeones first choice to anchor his defence.Youngster Jose Gimenez filled in for Miranda over the weekend and scored his first goal for Atletico in a 2-0 win at Elche. Gimenez is expected to partner Diego Godin.We have to go to Turin with the goal of finishing first in the group, which will be very important for us to keep our spirits high, Gimenez said.___KASAMI KEEPS FAITHAttacking midfielder Pajtim Kasami believes Greek champion Olympiakos can rebound from their domestic woes by beating Malmo.The Swiss player scored Saturday against Giannina but the home game in Piraeus ended 2-2, keeping Olympiakos four points behind Greek leaders PAOK.We have to look at Tuesdays game and concentrate, because only a win will matter, the 22-year-old said.Olympiakos campaign in Europe has sagged despite wins at home against both Atletico and Juventus — thanks in part to a surprise 2-0 defeat in Malmo in October.Coach Michel Gonzalez can rely on playmaker Alejandro Dominguez, who has returned to fitness, but Luka Milivojevic is out with a back injury.Home support, Gonzalez said, will be one of the keys to beating Malmo.The fans are fully aware of what it means to be an Olympiakos supporter, the coach said. It is something we should be aware of too.___POOR RUNMalmo is hoping to end a three-game losing streak when it visits Olympiakos.The only points and goals Malmo have posted so far in its debut group stage campaign came in the 2-0 home win over Olympiakos in October.Malmo have lost their last four matches away from home in Europe, including defeats by Sparta Prague (2-4), Salzburg (1-2), Juventus (0-2) and Atletico (0-4).Qualifying ties aside, Malmo last recorded an away win in the old European Cup when beating Monaco 1-0 in the first round in 1978-79 — the season it finished runner-up to Nottingham Forest.___Associated Press writers Joseph Wilson in Barcelona, Spain; and Derek Gatopoulos in Athens contributed.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at www.twitter.com/asdampf Air Max 97 Fake .

The 34-year-old Laval, Que. native has played six seasons with the Penguins.TAMPA, Fla. - Hoping to spark one of the NFLs least productive offences, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are turning back to Josh McCown at quarterback.The 12th-year pro started the first three games of the season, but has missed the past five after injuring the thumb on his throwing hand.McCowns return Sunday against Atlanta comes with the Bucs (1-7) riding a four-game losing streak. He was hurt during the opening half of a 56-14 to the Falcons on Sept. 18.Coach Lovie Smith hinted at a change on Monday, then Glennon confirmed the change on his radio show. The Bucs are ranked 31st in total offence and are 26th in scoring.The 35-year-old McCown has been a backup for most of a career that includes stints with Arizona, Detroit, Oakland, Carolina and Chicago, where he played for Smith, then coach of the Bears. He signed a two-year, $10 million contract with Tampa Bay in free agency and was immediately named the starter.Smith declined Wednesday to answer hypotheticals about whether Glennons play or McCown health was the main reason for the switch. McCown returned to practice last month and was active, but did not play, the past two weeks while Glennon struggled during losses to Minnesota and Cleveland.Josh was the starter before he got hurt. Hes healthy and hes back in, the coach said before later conceding the Bucs need more than theyve been getting from their quarterbacks.I think its the same with every position. You look at the production, and what were getting at the time, Smith said. I think we need better play at the quarterback position. You start with that. ... We need a little boost. Its like that with all positions. If the play isnt what we think it should be, were going to look and see if theres another option we can look at.While hes excited about having a second chance to lead the offence, McCown said he has mixed feelings about replacing Glennon, who played his way back to the bench after beating Pittsburgh and performing well in an overtime loss to New Orleans in his first two starts.dddddddddddd.As a competitor, you want to play, McCown said, adding that he still believes Glennon, who started 13 games as a rookie in 2013, has a promising future.From that regard you have mixed emotions, McCown added. But at the same time, as a captain on the team, and a player whos on a 1-7 team, you want to do everything you can to help the team win.McCown has thrown for two touchdowns and been intercepted four times this year after raising his stock a year ago, when he threw for 13 TDs and was only intercepted once in eight games while filling in for an injured Jay Cutler in Chicago.He said he wishes the team had been able to win more games under Glennon. At the same time, he acknowledged its good to have another shot at proving Smith made a good decision by signing him last winter.That certainly would be a bad taste in my mouth. But I think at this point, its about helping the guys come together and find a way to win a ball game. Thats what matters, McCown said.Glennon, whos thrown for 1,417 yards, 10 TDs and six interceptions, said hes taking the decision in stride.Obviously, it was disappointing, not what I liked. But Im going to keep preparing the same way as I always have. .. Whatever I can do to help the team, Im going to continue to do that, the second-year pro said.You wish you could have some throws back. But every quarterback in the NFL wishes he could have some throws back, Glennon added. Im not going to let it bother my confidence. I know what Im capable of doing.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
