Juventus booked its place in the Uefa Champions League quarter-final draw with a clinical display as they thrashed Borrusia Dortmund 3-0 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate at the Signal Iduna Arena on Wednesday night. The German team came into the match knowing they had to be on the front foot in order to overcome a 2-1 deficit they suffered in the first leg, however their task was made a lot harder after a stunner from Carlos Tevez in the third minute to hand the away team the early lead and had them 3-1 up on aggregate. The visitors almost got a second from a spectacular long-range shot from Stephan Lichtsteiner in the 16th minute, but Roman Weidenfeller was up to the task this time round and parried it out to safety.
Juergen Klopp’s team laid siege on the visitors goal but found clear-cut opportunities at goal hard to came by with their best chance coming in the 31st minute for Marco Reus, however his attempt was blocked away from goal. The black and yellows began the second half with far more purpose yet still couldn’t penetrate The Old Lady’s rigid defence, and they were made to pay as Tevez beat the off-side trap and drew in Weidenfeller before passing it to Alvaro Morata who coolly stroked it into the empty net to make it 2-0 in the 70th minute.
The goal seemed to knock all the energy and fight out of Die Borussen as Tevez completed the scoring in the 79th minute with a neat finish to make it three on the night and 5-1 on aggregate for Massimiliano Allegri’s men.
