Real Madrid and Juventus are the other two semifinalists
When least expected it after seven matches without win him to Atletico de Madrid, and with the absence of up to four undisputed holders, Real Madrid, it was when he came that victory. This is how it happens most of the pessimism of the largest of the euphoria of wonder that makes someone like Chicharito a roster full of stars to belt out chanting his name.
Real Madrid deserved. It was in a cruel manner that in the first leg not marked and would have been very cruel in return he had also failed. It was the only team that truly sought the goal before an Atletico Madrid for many unrecognizable, different, without the ambition he has shown in the past. Simeone, in 180 minutes of qualifying, have hardly tempted to Casillas.
The game seemed smitten the extension but the expulsion of Arda opened a gateway to Real Madrid. Harassment toward the goal of Oblak has already intensified a couple of minutes left came the game-winner. Good individual move by Cristiano Ronaldo and shot almost empty for Chicharito door. Mexican glory of this tie will stay and can say that his year in Madrid was not vacant.
Along with Real Madrid and the two teams who qualified yesterday, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, the quartet of semifinalists completes the Juventus. The Italian group met forecasts and eliminated the French Monaco, though no gloss: 1-0 in the first leg with a goal from penalty that was not and 0-0 in the return, in which he devoted himself to defend the income achieved at home.
Such was the history of Monaco – Juve in the Louis II. The French side from the beginning sought goal and accumulated some good times, whereas the Vecchia Signora defended quite well. Bolted, Juve was taking control and for the final leg the domain was already hers, not having to suffer too much in those moments where his rival, logically, is poured desperately.
Juventus returns to the semifinals of the Champions League, to which did not come for over ten years , with three teams that are already common in these conflicts in recent editions. On Friday 24 and the draw will take place as we speak four big European cups totaling 21 in all, any outcome in the two semi-finals draw will bring us the most exciting.
