Analysis: Carlos Tevez Brace Sends Juventus Into Champions League Last Eight

Carlos Tevez scored twice and set up Alvaro Morata as Juventus crushed Borussia 3-0 in Dortmund. Their first-leg advantage allowed them to focus on defending in Dortmund and they performed their task to perfection. Jurgen Klopp’s men never even came close to troubling Gianluigi Buffon as Juventus happily sat back and conceded possession, with Dortmund having zero shots on target in the opening 45 minutes. The Bundesliga side seemed to lack a clear gameplan and were devoid of ideas. Dortmund’s main dangerman, Marco Reus, was hardly involved, while fellow attackers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Kevin Kampl were all anonymous. Max Allegri leads the Old Lady through to the Champions League quarter-finals thanks to a 5-1 aggregate triumph. The Bianconeri won the first leg 2-1, but Andrea Pirlo, Martin Caceres, Kwadwo Asamoah and Romulo were sidelined. Jurgen Klopp dropped Ciro Immobile to the bench against his old club and opted for Sokratis Papastathopoulos at right-back. The visitors took little time […] Read more »

Borussia Dortmund V Juventus – Team News, Tactics, Lineups And Predictions

BORUSSIA DORTMUND vs JUVENTUS Signal Iduna Park, Dortmund Wednesday 18th March, 2015, 19:45 GMT  *** Borussia Dortmund welcome Juventus to the Westfalenstadion on Wednesday knowing that a 1-0 victory over Massimiliano Allegri’s men would be enough to see them through to the quarter-final stages of the Champions League. Juve hold a slight advantage in the two-legged encounter following a slender 2-1 victory at home to Jurgen Klopp and his charges back in late February. The Italian side know that any form of draw would give them safe passage, with an away goal making it a little more difficult for the German club. Dortmund have enjoyed an important resurgence in 2015 and have managed to lift themselves from probable relegation to a safely-placed position in the middle of the German top flight. The Germans have slightly faltered on the domestic front in their last two Bundesliga games, with Dortmund drawing blanks in two scoreless draws against Hamburger SV and FC Koln respectively.
