UEFA Champions League: Juventus 2-1 Lyon (2-2 agg): Ronaldo Brace Not Enough as Bianconeri Crash Out on Away Goals
Lyon survived a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired comeback from Juventus to hang on and book a Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City.
Another season will pass without European success for the Bianconeri after their talisman – the competition’s most prolific goalscorer – came up just short in his personal quest following the award of contentious penalties at either end in the second leg.
Having lost March’s first meeting 1-0 in France, Juve could ill afford another setback but conceded after just 12 minutes as Memphis Depay’s spot-kick gave Ronaldo and Co. a mountain to climb.
That left Juve needing to score three times to progress and Ronaldo got one back from the penalty spot.
