Juventus Go Through To The Europa League Semis

Juventus held Sporting to a 1-1 draw in the second leg to go through to the semi-finals of the Europa League.

Sporting came into the draw with a 1 goal deficit in the first leg of the Europa League. This meant Sporting had to do something they had not done before – beat Juventus in an European competition.

Sporting started the game on a high note. They were determined to do the impossible. They had plenty of chances but with little luck.

Juventus opened the scoring when Rabiot blasted in the rebound from a corner. However, their lead didn’t last long. Rabiot who scored the opener gave away a penalty which Edwards put away calmly. Also Read: Manchester United couldn’t hang on despite taking the lead

Juventus had very few chances to talk about. It was mostly about Sporting. They even hit the post one time. In the second half, just when they thought they got that 1 goal it was cleared off the line by the Juve defense.

The ball just wouldn’t go in for the hosts. The game ended in a 1-1 draw which favoured Juventus. Although, they didn’t have a great game they would be happy with the result.

Sporting fans can be proud of their team who gave everything on the pitch. Juventus fans, recently having their 15-point deduction overturned, will have a day to remember. Also Read: Juventus Gets The 15 Points Back In The League, Judgement Overturns
