Carlos Tevez - Champion's League 2015
Carlos Tevez of Juventus celebrates as he scores their second goal from a penalty during the UEFA Champions League semi final first leg match between Juventus and Real Madrid CF at Juventus Arena on May 5, 2015 in Turin, Italy.
The scoreline may have read 2-1 advantage Juventus following Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg. However, it was hard not to feel like the real advantage was the Real Madrid.
Not only did most of the controversial calls from ref Martin Atkinson go the way of Madrid, so did most of the yellow card action ahead of the return leg at the Bernabeu next Wednesday.
Sure, Madrid went down 1-0 early on thanks to a great shot by Carlos Tevez, a timely back post run by Alvaro Morata and some questionable goalkeeping from Los Blancos’ Iker Casillas. Yet, Madrid did a great job in keeping the home side from being extra dangerous for most of the rest of the match.
