Juventus & PSG booked last-16 place as Ronaldo equals Messi record

Alvaro Morata has broken the hearts of Ferencvaros after the Spaniard came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner to send Juventus into the Champions League knockout stages.

Alvaro Morata’s late header lifted Juventus into the Champions League knockout stages as Andrea Pirlo’s side claimed a last-gasp 2-1 win over Ferencvaros.


Dibusz had been beaten by Cristiano Ronaldo’s thumping 35th-minute equaliser, which cancelled out Myrto Uzuni’s opener and moved the 35-year-old level with Lionel Messi on 70 home Champions League goals. It was also Ronaldo’s 131st Champions League goal.

It was not to be, though, with Dibusz failing to keep out a Morata header which was directed straight at him as Juve clinched their last-16 place with two games to spare.

In other Champions League match, Paris Saint-Germain revived their hopes of reaching the Champions League knockout phase with a fortunate 1-0 home win against RB Leipzig thanks to an early penalty from Neymar.

Neymar scored his first goal in the competition in six games, but PSG were otherwise toothless throughout as they leapfrogged Leipzig into second place.
