Juventus 0-3 Villarreal: Moreno & Co Scores As Old Lady Suffers A Huge UCL Defeat

Villarreal surprised Juventus with three late goals to win 3-0 in Turin and advance to the Champions League quarter-finals on a 4-1 aggregate.

For the first time since 2009, Gerard Moreno (78 pen), Pau Torres (85) and Arnaut Danjuma (90+2 pen) scored to send last season’s Europa League winners through to the Champions League final eight. 

After a 1-1 draw in Spain three weeks ago, Unai Emery’s side put up a resolute defensive display for the majority of the Turin rematch-and then scored with each of their three attempts on target. 

Substitute Francis Coquelin tripped over Daniele Rugani’s outstretched leg in the 78th minute to give Villarreal the lead.

After a VAR review, the penalty was granted, and Moreno, who had only been on the field for a few minutes, just managed to beat Wojciech Szczesny from the spot.
