Juventus eliminated from Champions League despite victory over Lyon

Juventus eliminated from Champions League despite victory over Lyon

Juventus' Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo (R) fights for the ball with Lyon's French defender Leo Dubois during the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg football match between Juventus and Olympique Lyonnais (OL), played behind closed doors due to the spread of the COVID-19 infection, caused by the novel coronavirus, at the Juventus stadium, in Turin, on August 7, 2020.

Juventus have officially confirmed that former midfielder Andrea Pirlo will be the new first team coach.

Memphis Depay successfully converted a penalty to go 1-0 in the 12th minute and Cristiano Ronaldo's side then required three goals to progress to the next stage.

Most teams ease off the pedal once a title is secured, but Sarri's side stalled after that win.

"This competition doesn't take any prisoners", he said. The last time they faced a similar situation, it was Ronaldo's hat-trick that put them in the semi-finals of the UCL.

"We were immediately behind with a penalty which for me is insane, much more than questionable".

It is not the first time a valuable piece of artwork has been damaged in an attempt to get a memorable picture. Antonio Canova was an Italian sculptor who lived from 1757 to 1822 and famous for his marble statues.

"They had a much more logical preparation than ours".

"But they gave everything and fought to the end".

"I don't think my future is riding on this game", said Sarri as Juventus look to keep their hopes of a first European title since 1996 on track.

According to reports in Italy, this decision was taken by Juventus president Andrea Agnelli.

"The Champions League is not a dream, it's an objective".

The Serie A champions beat the French side 2-1 as Ronaldo scored twice but it wasn't enough as his side crashed out on away goals (2-2). Agnelli added that the club's management will now "take a few days to evaluate everything" following the Champions League's exit.
