CHAMPIONS LEAGUE:JUVENTUS VS PORTO

Time may be up for Ronaldo to add to his 5 UEFA champions league winners medals. Juve went down here agonizingly on the away goals rule after the Turin leg finished 3-2 in their favor.First leg was 2-1 to Porto. Juve were on top in this match in every aspect except the scoreline which is the most important by the way. Marchesin saved well from a header by Ronaldo which had goal written all over it after three minutes. Ronaldo’s heading technique is one for the ages, he leaps early and high giving to chance. Sergio Conceicao’s side were no slouches in attack too. Marega was a handful and his strike partner Taremi nearly handed Porto the all important away goal when his looping header cannoned off the cross bar after 5 minutes. First moment of controversy in the match led to the goal for Porto which effectively canceled out the away goal scored bu Juve in Portugal. Demiral foul on Taremi seemed harsh at best, contact minimal. Sergio Oliveira sent Szczesny after 19 minutes

Frederico Chiesa(son of Enrico) got the equalizer after the break after being teed up by Ronaldo(48 minutes). The situation got better for Juve when Taremi received a second yellow from the ref for time wasting for kicking the ball away after 54 minutes. Last ditch defending by Ronaldo’s former Real Madrid teammate Pepe prevented a sure goal by Chiesa a minute after the sending off. There was no denying Chiesa on 62 minutes. A beautiful cross floated by Cuadrado met with a header by the diminutive winger. To extra time we went. Szczesny if you are watching look away. 114 minutes free kick given for Porto miles away from goal. The Juve keeper allowed the innocuous kick from Oliviera to go under him to make the game 2-2 and Juve facing an uphil task to proceed to the last 8. Two minutes later a Rabiot header made sure we had a frantic finish to the match. Juventus go yet another season without the big one.
