Borussia Dortmund 0-3 (1-5) Juventus: Tevez helps The Old Lady cruise to quarters

1 Comment

Juventus got two goals and an assist from Carlos Tevez and Borussia Dortmund rarely threatened the Italian side’s goal in a 3-0 win at the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday, sending The Old Lady to the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals 5-1 on aggregate.

Alvaro Morata scored an insurance goal off a break in the 71st minute, as Juventus will be the only Italian representative in the quarters. Tevez finished off the scoring in the 79th minute.

Dortmund trailed 2-1 after the first leg in Turin, but couldn’t use home field to its advantage to reclaim a spot in the final eight.

It took just over two minutes for Tevez to change the complexion of the tie, as he stopped a pass dead and lashed a 25-yard bullet into the upper 90. Now the home side would need two goals and no concessions to advance to the quarterfinals.

source: APJuve nearly put it to bed just after halftime when Tevez weaved a dazzling dribble into the BVB half before slipping a through ball to Alvaro Morata, only to see the 22-year-old Spaniard denied by an onrushing Roman Weidenfeller.

And the Dortmund keeper was again called-upon to stop Morata on another partial break minutes later, with Weidenfeller kicking the shot away with his right leg.
