Tevez torments Real in UCL Semi

Italian giants Juventus are 90 minutes away from a Champions League Final berth after edging Real Madrid 2-1 in the first leg of their Semi-final in Turin.

Carlos Tevez won and then converted his own second-half penalty to give Juve the advantage ahead of next week’s return meeting in Spain.

Tevez earlier had a hand in the opener, drawing a low save from Iker Casillas which fell for former Madrid man Alvaro Morata to tap home.

Despite conceding the 57th-minute winner, Real remain a strong chance to progress thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s crucial away goal.

The Ballon D’Or winner nodded home an ingenious James Rodriguez cross shortly after Morata’s opener to boost his side’s hopes of retaining their title.
