Champions League: Manaco 0-0 Juventus (agg 0-1)

Treble-chasing Juventus reached a first Champions League semi-final since 2003 as they defended solidly to earn a second-leg goalless draw in Monaco.

The runaway Serie A leaders, who are also in the Italian Cup final against Lazio, led 1-0 after the first leg through Arturo Vidals penalty.

The hosts dominated possession for the majority but rarely tested Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon.

Home substitute Dimitar Berbatov did have a shot smothered after the break.

The Old Lady have become the first Italian side to reach the semi-final since Inter Milan won the competition back in 2010.

Champions League: Juventus 1-0 Manaco

Juventus will take a narrow lead to Monaco for their Champions League last-eight second leg after Arturo Vidals penalty split the sides in Turin.

Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco wasted a clear opening for the visitors before Carlos Tevez fluffed a volley for Juve.

Vidal, who had blazed over just before the break, then blasted home an emphatic penalty following Ricardo Carvalhos trip on Alvaro Morata.

Dimitar Berbatov headed just over but Monaco were mostly kept at bay.

Leonardo Jardim, the Principality sides manager, claimed that the result was a big injustice with the decisive spot-kick inexistent.

Repeated viewings suggested Carvalho tripped Morata fractionally outside the penalty area, but it would be hard to blame referee Pavel Kralovec on such a marginal call.

Juventus might also have argued that as the last defender, Carvalho was fortunate to see only yellow for the foul.

Monaco had enough chances to return home level, regardless of the officials decision.

Champions League: Juventus 2-1 Borussia Dortmund

Juventus had to settle for a narrow first-leg lead after missing a several good chances against Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League last-16 tie.

Carlos Tevez put the Italians ahead after Roman Weidenfeller spilled at his feet, but Dortmund soon struck back.

Marco Reus exploited Giorgio Chiellinis slip to scamper in and shoot home just three minutes later.

Alvaro Moratas careful finish put Juve back in front and the hosts could have stretched away in the second half.

After the break, Tevez went close on three occasions, Chiellini rose unmarked to head over the top and Roberto Pereyra shot just wide.

But the Italians ultimately failed to exploit Dortmunds fragility and will take only a one-goal advantage to Germany.

The win took the Serie A champions unbeaten home run to 47 games and they made the fast start that a simmering atmosphere at the Juventus Stadium demanded.

With defenders back in numbers there appeared little danger for Dortmund despite Morata escaping the attentions of his man on the left.

But the Spaniards well-hit shot and Dortmund goalkeeper Weidenfellers fumble presented Tevez with a simple finish five yards out.

A woeful run of domestic form left them bottom of the Bundesliga at the start of 2015 but Dortmund have kept faith with a pressing game and their energy soon delivered parity.

Chiellini lost his footing as he attempted to control a routine ball forward and Reus, who has recently agreed a contract extension with the Germans,  raced in on goal and coolly beat Gianluigi Buffon.

The visitors enjoyed more of the possession for the rest of the half but never looked secure at the back.

Leonardo Bonucci headed over from a good position for Juventus, and Dortmund were caught out again by a swift counter-attack just before the break as Morata was left free to side-foot home from six yards.

Dortmund continued to be undermined as Weidenfeller and his defence wobbled through to the end of the tie but, with an away goal secured, they will hope the Westfalenstadion can inspire them to the quarter-finals.
