Excellent display from Juventus to deny Real Madrid spoils in Turin. Alvaro Morata set the ton of the match by scoring the opener, against his former club, then Cristiano Ronaldo equalised for the defending champions.

Finally, world's greatest club football tournament has entered it's final stretch and in the first leg of first semi-final, Juventus will welcome Real Madrid in Turin. Both the teams have done more than enough to justify their presence in the final four line-up in this prestigious competition.
