Villarreal has caused a stunt in the eighth final of the Champions League. After a 1-1 draw in Spain, Juventus were defeated 0-3 in Turin. Arnaut Danjuma was again accurate for Unai Emery’s team.
It took a while for Juventus to get going. In the first half, Allegri’s team left possession of the ball quietly to the Spanish opponent, but it got the best chances itself. Alvaro Morata and Dusan Vlahovic saw their efforts turned by Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli and, in one instance, the crossbar.
In the second half the game continued at the same pace: Juventus missed half chances and Villarreal created little to nothing with uninspired attacks. But that stopped in the 76th minute. After a clumsy foul by Daniele Rugani, Gerard Moreno suddenly scored the 0-1.
Juventus did not immediately make a fist, and were immediately punished. From a corner, central defender Pau Torres decided in the 85th minute. Moments later, Arnaut Danjuma was able to determine the final score at 0-3 from the spot, after a hand from compatriot Mathijs de Ligt. The Dutchman is therefore involved in six goals this Champions League season.
Pat on the back
“Can I pat myself on the back for that?” Danjuma said smiling for the camera of RTl7. ,,I’m just glad I got to take the penalty. I actually have to thank Gerard Moreno for that. It helped that we trained on penalties yesterday.”
It was noticed that Danjuma came onto the field smiling before the game. “There are some moments in football that you have to embrace,” explained the attacker. from.”
Due to the elimination of Juventus, there are no Italian teams in the quarterfinals of the championship ball. It is the sixth time that the ‘Old Lady’ has been defeated at home in the knockout phase of the Champions League.
