Juve oust Real to reach UCL final

Juventus are through to their first UEFA Champions League Final since 2003 after Alvaro Morata ended his former side’s hopes of consecutive titles.

Morata, a former Real Madrid youth product, netted a second-half equaliser to secure a 1-1 draw and 3-2 aggregate victory for Juventus.

Morata’s goal came after Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring from the penalty spot, which would have been enough to send the holders through to face rivals Barcelona had they held on.

Instead, the visitors did what was required to book their ticket to Berlin for the decider.

Now they just need to find a way to keep Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar quiet for 90 minutes.

Barca’s 3-0 first leg win over Bayern Munich proved a comfortable buffer for their trip to Germany despite ultimately being beaten 3-2 on the night by Pep Guardiola’s side.

The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held in the early morning of Sunday, 7 June AEST.
