Juventus secure a 2-1 victory over Ferencvaros
Juventus secured a hard-fought victory over Ferencvaros at Allianz Stadium thanks to goals from
Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata
This win takes Juventus to the UEFA Champions League knockout stages
Juventus needed a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo and a last-minute winner from Alvaro Morata to secure a 2-1
victory over Ferencvaros last night in the UEFA Champions League. The Hungarian club started brightly
and took the lead through Myrto Uzuni in the 19th minute.
Cristiano Ronaldo has been in fine form this season and has shown no signs of slowing down. In 8 appearances
for Juventus so far this season, the 5-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored an incredible 9 goals.
The teams went into half time at 1-1. Juventus, as was expected, completely dominated the ball in the second
half. They upped the ante and looked to secure the game-winning goal. However, Ferencvaros held
on gamely and looked all set to frustrate the hosts.
Alvaro Morata who came on for Paulo Dybala in the 62nd minute had other ideas. The Spanish striker
headed in an inch-perfect cross from Juan Cuadrado in the 92nd minute to break Hungarian hearts and
secure all 3 points for the Old Lady.
This result ensured Juventus’ progression to the knockout stages from Group C along with Barcelona
who secured a comfortable 4-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv. Alvaro Morata who now has 7 goals from 10 matches
received some special praise from Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo:
“If he’s well mentally then he (Morata) can do anything, he can become one of the best strikers around. If he
trains well, if he’s in good shape and he plays and he scores, he’s a fundamental player not just for Juventus but
also for his national team.
