Juventus secured a hard-fought victory over Ferencvaros thanks to goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata. This Triumph takes Juventus into the UEFA Champions League knockout stages.
Juventus had a target out of Cristiano Ronaldo along with also 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 via Myrto Uzuni in the 19th minute.
However, Juventus soon started commanding the ball as they looked to split down the tumultuous back-line of the side. Cristiano Ronaldo, as so often is the situation, given the moment of inspiration. The Portuguese superstar sent a left-footed drive right to the corner, to get Juventus straight back into the match.
Cristiano Ronaldo was in good form this season and has shown no signs of slowing down. In 8 appearances for Juventus so much this year, 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, entirely dominated the ball in the second half. They upped the ante and looked to fasten the match-winning goal. However, Ferencvaros held on gamely and seemed all set to frustrate the hosts.
Alvaro Morata who came on for Paulo Dybala at the 62nd minute had other thoughts. The Spanish striker headed in an inch-perfect cross from Juan Cuadrado at the 92nd minute to break Hungarian hearts and secure all 3 points for the Old Lady.
This result ensured Juventus’ development into the knockout stages from Group C along with Barcelona who procured a comfortable 4-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv.
Alvaro Morata who has now seven goals out of 10 matches received some special praise from Juventus director 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.
“We work to put him in the best condition, and then he is good at finalising what he does on the pitch.”
