Is Juventus out of the Champions League?

Is Juventus out of the Champions League?

Sergio Oliveira's extra-time free-kick for Porto's second goal proved pivotal. It gave the Portuguese club a lead they would not relinquish as they went on to win 2-1 at the end of the match. That left Juve with no chance of catching Barcelona or Real Madrid and meant that their title defence came to an end here.

The result also ended any hope Juventus had of qualifying for the next stage of the tournament - the last knockout round. They now have to hope that one of the other three remaining teams fail to beat Porto or Salzburg in their respective games today (Portugal v Germany and Austria v Sweden).

If none of them lose, then there will be a play-off between the two third-placed teams with the aim of determining which one qualifies for the next round. However, if both Portugal and Italy finish below Salzburg and Basel, respectively, then it would mean that the Champions League would come to an early conclusion this year.

Salzburg were the first Austrian team to qualify for the last 16 when they defeated Marseille 3-0 in the group stage. This was followed by Basel beating Manchester City 1-0 in the last 32.

Is Juventus eliminated from the Champions League in 2021?

In a tense extra-time conclusion on Tuesday, Juventus was ousted from the round of 16 for the second year in a row. Sergio Oliveira, another Portuguese midfielder, was the star of Tuesday's drama between Porto and Juventus, scoring two goals to send Porto through. Before the draw was made, many believed that Oleiria would be drawn against Barcelona or Real Madrid. However, the UEFA club competition committee decided that Porto will play Juventus instead.

Porto won 2-1 on aggregate score. This is also the second consecutive season that Juventus was knocked out by Porto in the round of 16. Previously, they were beaten 3-0 by Porto back in April 2019. That game also went into extra time before Juve managed to come back and win 4-3 on penalties.

Since their inception in 1992, Juventus has been competing in every season except for 2002-03 and 2004-05 when they were banned due to financial problems. Over the years, they have won the title five times - 1996-97, 2003-04, 2005-06, 2006-07, and 2007-08. They have also reached the final four times but never won it.

Currently, Juventus is third in the table behind Barca and Madrid with six points from three games.

How did Juventus lose against Porto?

In a crazy, furious, and tight match in Turin on Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo and company were knocked out in the round of 16 by big underdogs Porto. Juve won 3-2 in extra time, but the match ended 4-4 on aggregate, with Porto progressing on away goals. It was certainly a controversial result, but one that will surely cause many people to question whether Juve can survive as a club.

Ronaldo scored twice, but it wasn't enough to save his side from being eliminated. He played almost an entire hour before being substituted out for Luca Marrone. However, despite helping his team reach the quarterfinals, Ronaldo didn't seem too happy with the outcome and took to Twitter after the match to vent his anger. "I'm so sad because we lost today," he wrote. "But I respect the decision of my coach [Massimiliano Allegri]. We'll see what happens next season."

Allegri responded by saying that he's always believed in Ronaldo's talent and that he'll still have a major role to play at Juve next season. "We've known each other for years and I always believed in him," Allegri said. "He's an important player for us and we hope he'll be back soon."

This is not the first time that Ronaldo has been involved in a knockout phase exit.

Who was the winner of the UEFA Champions League in 2004?

Monaco, a Monaco-based team representing the French Football Federation, met Porto, who won 3-0, with goals from Carlos Alberto, Man of the Match Deco, and Dmitri Alenichev. It was Monaco's first European title.

Monaco became the first French team to win the UEFA Champions League after Olympique de Marseille had achieved this feat in 1993. The club from the Principality took part in its first European competition that same year, and they were able to win it for the first time four years later.

They are now playing in the UEFA Europa League, which they have won twice, in 2011 and 2012. Before that, they were eliminated in the group stage both times.

Monaco has been owned by the Ligue 1 club ASM Belhanda since 2010. The club is based out of Monte Carlo but plays its home games at Stade Louis II in Bastia, Corsica.

As for Porto, it finished second in its group behind Chelsea and lost 4-1 on aggregate to the English champions. This was its last season under manager José Mário "Deco" Casaca, who had led the club to three Portuguese championships and two Portuguese Cups during his tenure.

How many goals has Ronaldo scored for Juventus so far?

95 objectives Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 770th career goal to seal a hat-trick against Cagliari in Serie A. CR7 has scored 95 goals for Juventus thus far! He joined the club in 993 and has since then become their all-time top scorer with 551 goals.

Ronaldo is only the second player after Maradona to score 100 goals in international competition, following Argentina's Diego Armando Maradona who did so between 1986 and 1990 when he played for both Barcelona and Napoli. The Portuguese forward is also one of three players have scored over 50 goals in the UEFA Champions League, along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Lionel Messi.

He is the current world player of the year and league leader with 36 goals already this season. Having said that, it is very likely that he will continue his scoring form by helping Juventus win their third consecutive title.

Before joining Juve, Ronaldo spent seven seasons with Madrid where he made 363 appearances and scored 156 goals. He helped the Spanish capital club to four trophies in total. In addition to the league title, Ronaldo won the cup twice and the supercup during his time at the Madrids.

After leaving Madrid in 2010, Ronaldo signed for Italian club Liverpool but was sold later that year to United for $130 million.

What was the score between Juventus and AC Milan?

Milan won 4-2 on the strength of four different goal scorers. Juve thought to have put the game away after Adrian Rabiot and Cristiano Ronaldo scored within seven minutes, but Milan responded with three goals in six minutes until Ante Rebic's strike in the 80th minute put an end to any hope of a Juve comeback. This is now only the second time in history that has happened.

The first time this happened was back in 2001 during the last matchday of the Serie A season. Milan beat Lazio 3-1 at home while Juve lost 1-0 at Cagliari. Both teams ended up in the same position - qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage. But whereas Milan managed it without too many problems, Juve could only finish third behind Bari and Sampdoria. After the game, attention turned to who would join Manchester United in the Premier League next season. Because of this reason, some people claim that this incident helped bring about Juve's relegation later that year.

However, this isn't completely true. Juve were actually relegated anyway because they couldn't sign anyone in time for the start of the season.

Also, since when did scoring four times equal to two? That's not how we judge football matches nowadays...

We used to say that a player has done well if he has scored even though his team has lost.
