A surprise 3-0 away win for Villarreal against Juventus has knocked the Italian giants out of the Champions League. The Spanish club is in their first quarter-final since 2009. Allegri's team has changed dramatically since the arrival of Bojan Krkic and is a different team than before. While their defensive performance is still a concern‚ they have become more dangerous and are able to create many more chances. The home side‚ Juventus‚ have a good chance of progressing to the semi-finals of the Champions League. The Spanish club defeated the Italian giants 3-0 in the last round. While Villarreal may not have the same attacking flair as the Italians‚ they did manage to limit the Juventus scoreline to just one. The game will go to extra time and possibly a shootout. Despite the defeat‚ the 2-1 result remains a huge positive for both sides. It is important to remember that this match was the first leg of a tie between two sides.
The Italian giants had a stronger start‚ but Villarreal were far more slick on the counterattack. The game was a nervy affair‚ with neither team able to get a point. The result was the same for both sides and it is a massive disappointment for the Italians.
