Real and Juve Progress in Champions League


Your final four in this season’s Champions League will be Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, and current holders Real Madrid. The yesterday match results from Wednesday (22 April 2015) were not as high-scoring as Tuesday, when eight goals were scored between two games.

A goalless first leg at the Vicente Calderón Stadium gave Atlético Madrid hope that they could progress in their second leg against Real Madrid. Unfortunately for Atleti, it was Los Merengues that dominated.

Real controlled 63% of possession and limited Atleti to just two shots on target. The game remained goalless for the vast majority until an Arda Turan sending off after 75 minutes opened things up. On-loan Man Utd misfit Javier Hernández scored the winner in the 88th minute.

Juventus played a dull 0-0 draw away to Monaco, which was good enough to give the Old Lady a 1-0 aggregate win. Juve will need to improve in the semi-finals to stand a chance of winning the tournament.
