Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo’s two goals inspired Juventus’ 2-1 win on the night but Juve came up one goal short and for the second season running Ronaldo has failed in his quest to lead the Italian giants to the Champions League title.

As for Lyon, who haven’t played in over 5 months as the French league was cancelled in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, they put in a heroic display as they now face Manchester City in Lisbon, Portugal in the last eight on Aug. 15.

Trailing 1-0 from the first leg, recently-crowned Serie A champions Juve found themselves needing to score three goals after Memphis Depay’s nonchalant 12th-minute penalty.

Ronaldo reduced the arrears two minutes before the break with a penalty of his own and gave Juventus further hope when he rocketed his 130th Champions League goal into the top corner on the hour.

But, Juve couldn’t find one more goal to send them through as Lyon advanced on the away goals rule and shocked everyone by dumping the Italian champions out of Europe
