Italian giants, Juventus, has set up a UEFA Champions League final showdown with Barcelona after defeating Real Madrid 3-2 on aggregate at the semi-final stage of the European football elite club competition.
The result brought to an end the possibility of a classico in the final of the competition.
The first leg ended 2-1 in favour of the Italians with former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata and Carlos Tevez sandwiching Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal.
In the second leg tie in the Bernabeau Santiago, a goal from Morata ended Real Madrid’s reign as European champions on Wednesday when Italian side Juventus drew 1-1 to progress 3-2 on aggregate.
Morata’s second-half strike, which cancelled out Cristiano Ronaldo’s first-half penalty, secured Juventus’ first appearance in the final since 2003 where they lost to AC Milan, then coached by Real’s current handler Carlo Ancelotti.
Juventus, who last won the trophy in 1996, will play Barcelona in the final in Berlin on June 6.
