In the UEFA Champions League Group D, Juventus welcomed Bayer Leverkusen at the Juventus Stadium this Tuesday in Turin. And led by Cristiano Ronaldo, the Old Lady defeated the Germans 3-0 at home. A great result after the frustrating draw away from home against Atletico Madrid in the first round. Gonzalo Higuain, Bernardeschi, and Cristiano Ronaldo scored Juventus’ goals.

The first moments of the game in Turin were with Juventus practically all the time with the ball possession on their feet, high-pressing Leverkusen, and giving them no chance. Juventus could turn such offensive dominance into a goal after 17 minutes when Higuain intercepted a poor pass from the Leverkusen defender and fired into the corner to open the scoring. 1-0 Juve.

Not much action happened throughout the rest of the first half. After the interval, however, the so far “missed” in the match, Cristiano Ronaldo, came back to the pitch up to score past the goalkeeper Hradecky. In Juan Cuadrado’s pass, the Portuguese finished and Bayer goalkeeper Leverkusen was perfect to avoid the first goal of the star in the Champions League.

Shortly after Hradecky made the good save on Cristiano Ronaldo’s shot, Bayer Leverkusen’s defense left space and Juventus took advantage, and from the feet of Higuain, a perfect cross was settled to Bernardeschi, who slotted home to make the second. 2-0 Juve.

The game looked pretty controlled by Juventus, as the Old Lady’s main goal in the match from then on was to get Ronaldo’s name into the scorelines. However, it was proving to be a complicated mission. On the second attempt, CR7 received a cross from Cuadrado and again stopped at Hradecky’s hands. But in the final minutes, Dybala found the Portuguese, who found the back of the nets, capitalizing on the goalkeeper’s rush out of the line to make the third. Juve 3-0 Leverkusen.

A good win that puts Juve first in the Group, with 4 points, same as Atleti, but with more goals scored.
