Juventus End Real Madrid’s Champions League Dream


Despite losing 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Juventus, Real Madrid had every chance to advance to the final. Away goals can either be crushing or a salvation in the Champions League. In this case, a 1-0 win would have been enough for Los Merengues to progress.

However, the football results from yesterday (13 May) clearly show that Real Madrid drew 1-1 to Juventus for a 3-2 aggregate loss. That leaves the revitalised Juventus ready to play in their first European final since May 2003 when they lost in the Champions League to Milan.

Real Madrid had aspired to retain the Champions League in back-to-back seasons for the first time in 30 years. All had appeared to be going well when Cristiano Ronaldo scored after 23 minutes, but Real were unable to respond after former player Álvaro Morata scored after 57 minutes. Juventus will play Barcelona in the 2015 Champions League final.
