SMA NEWS – Champions League
Juventus and Barcelona face off next week to see who will finish top of Group G; Borussia Dortmund booked their spot in the last 16
Cristiano Ronaldo scored his 750th goal to help Juventus beat Dynamo Kyiv 3-0 while Barcelona also won 3-0 at Ferencvaros.
Ronaldo scored Juve’s second goal and also hit the bar after Federico Chiesa opened the scoring in the first half. Alvaro Morata completed the scoring in a game that saw Stephanie Frappart become the first female referee to officiate a men’s Champions League match.
Juventus remained second in Group G, three points behind Barcelona after the Catalan club won 3-0 at Ferencvaros. Lionel Messi was rested and missed a second European trip in a row but Barca barely noticed their captain’s absence as goals from Antoine Griezmann, Martin Braithwaite and a penalty from Ousmane Dembele gave them a three-goal lead before the break.
Both Juve and Barca had already sealed qualification to the round of 16 but a win for Juventus at Barcelona in the final round next week could see the Bianconeri snatch top spot.
