The Portuguese striker scored a double to lead Vecchia Signora’s comeback, but the third goal the Italians needed never came.
Paying dearly for the result of the first leg and the bad start in this second leg, Juventus was left out of the Champions League against Olympique Lyon. It was a 2-1 victory for the Bianconeri in the Allianz Stadium, but the 2-2 aggregate left the French favored by the away goal.
Things started from bad to worse for Vecchia Signora, who had a penalty against 12 minutes after an entry by Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur that had to be reviewed in the VAR, which did not clear many doubts either. However, Memphis did not get carried away by that and changed it for so much.
However, the homeowners did not give up and at 43 ‘the referee signaled a penalty in their favor, which Cristiano Ronaldo secured with total quality to the goalkeeper’s left post, while the goalkeeper threw himself to the other side.
With a certain mental impulse, Maurizio Sarri’s men went out to look for the result, in a forced way and managed to discount once at 60 ‘more through CR7, who hooked a couple of times and, after outlining, took out a powerful left-footed shot almost unapproachable for Anthony Lopes.
The locals continued to search and were clear dominators of ball possession and the development of the game in general, although they could not capitalize on the comeback. The Portuguese attacker had a chance to head that he did not materialize and little by little the French team was closing more and more, making every Juve attack impossible.
In this way, Olympique Lyon got into the quarterfinals and will face in Lisbon, a single match, against Manchester City, which has just eliminated Real Madrid with a 4-2 aggregate.
