Spread the love

So, Lyon will now get ready to head to Portugal to face Manchester City, who beat Real Madrid 4-2 on aggregate, in the quarter-final next Saturday. As for Juventus, they have a month’s rest before they get underway for their new season.

Full time in Turin. Juventus crash out disappointingly to Lyon despite winning 2-1 on the night. The French side progress on away goals where they will be meeting Manchester City. Tonight is the first time Juventus have ever lost a two-legged tie to a French club and their earliest UEFA Champions League elimination since the 2015/16 campaign.

86′- A corner is swung into the box for Juventus and Bonucci rises highest in the middle to meet it. His header is sent over the bar but he’s judged to have fouled Marcal as he went for it and a free-kick is given to Juventus’ frustration.

84′- Dybala’s thigh injury looks to have relapsed and he makes way for Oliveri.

78′-And we’ve got some mayhem happening right now in the Juventus box. Calls for a handball, calls for a penalty, calls for everything on both sides. One VAR review later and it was all for nothing as the ref moves on with the game and gives Lyon a corner. He also gives Cornet a yellow card for dissent.

76′-HUGE CHANCE! Dybala’s out-swinging corner lands flush on the head of Ronaldo, who is head and shoulders above Andersen but could only head over.

Big twenty minutes coming up for Juventus as they go in search of the goal that takes them through.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the first man to reach 130 goals in the Champions League. He’s scored 67 goals in 81 games in the knockout stages as well.

Ronaldo scores again

67′- Double substitution for Lyon as Depay and Ekambi are replaced by Dembele and Adelaide.

60′- JUVENTUS TAKE THE LEAD!!! Cometh the hour, cometh the man. It’s Ronaldo once again for the Old Lady. The Portuguese unleashes a left-footed drive that is simply too strong for Anthony Lopes. 2-2 on aggregate. Lyon still lead on away goals.

Juventus are keeping the ball well at the moment and all of their possession is in Lyon’s half of the field. It’s patient play from the home side as they try to break down their opponents.

Half-time in Turin. 1-1 on the night and 2-1 to Lyon on aggregate. Juventus need to score at least two goals to advance.

43′- JUVENTUS ARE LEVEL!!! After Depay is adjudged to have handled the ball, another spot-kick is awarded, this time to Juventus. Up stepped the ever-reliant Ronaldo who dispatched accurately from 12 yards

40′- Chance for Juve as Ronaldo steps up to take the free-kick and he curls his effort up and over the wall and Lopes dives across his line and stretches to get a hand to it to push it away.

25′- Both sides go for a cooling break.

21′- What an intervention by Marcelo! Bernadeschi goes on a mazy run and beats two Lyon defenders as well as the keeper. But he was denied just in time by Marcelo as he prepared to tap into an empty net.

19′ -We’ve got the first booking of the match. A Yellow card is given to Houssem Aouar for unsportsmanlike conduct of kicking the ball away. Cheap foul, really.

11′- GOAL FOR LYON! Bernadeschi brings down Aouar and the referee points to the spot. After consultation with VAR, the decision is confirmed and the resulting spot-kick is converted by Depay who celebrates his return from injury with a goal. Juventus have it all to do now.

1′- Higuain registers the first effort of the game but it’s a comfortable save for Anthony Lopes.

Lyon currently lead the tie after a 1-0 victory in France courtesy of a Lucas Tousart strike.
