Dan Thomas is the best…..
The standard of the Serie A is down and I have been saying this for several months. This quarter finals has confirmed my opinion on the Serie A's level.
Ronaldo ruined juventus while he was there
juve needs time to rebuild. the burden of Ronaldo signing with his 30mil wages meant many of the areas of the squad needs rebuilding. it wasa bad result against villareal but the midfiled went from mckennie, locatelli, zakaria in th 1st leg to arthur, rabiot and locatelli. thats a significant drop off, not to mention that rugani hasnt played in such a big game before. i think juve knows they need to invest in the midfield. and obviously in 2 new cback with bonucci and chiellini ageing. a new leftback is needed too
Juventus wants to play in the ESL against real, bayern and city, and yet cant overcome villareal and lyon.
Rabbiot should have been red carded at 1-1 in the first leg with 20 minutes to go! Juve left la ceremica with their tail between their legs!
Good Juventus are a trash club. Any time Juventus lose is a good day.
Villareal will win champions league
Just a reminder that 4th place LaLiga beat out 5th place Prem and that 11 place LaLiga beat out 4th place Serie A. Also that 1st place LaLiga beat out 1st place Ligue 1.
Juventus overrated, same old every year.
Juve is steaming because Villareal gave them a World-class lesson in "catenaccio" in their own house.
p.s. Interestingly, the way Villareal played was exactly the same way that Juve played 2 weeks ago in the away game. Exactly the same.
How can the better playing team not be given the credit for winning…they consistently been better over all
Italian football is awful
I am a diehard Juve fan, but credit where credit is due. Villarreal completely outclassed and outcoached Juve during this game. In the second half Juve looked confused and passive on the attack. Why no attackers were brought into the game until there were 10 minutes left is beyond me. Perhaps someone more tactically inclined can explain this to me. I have faith in Allegri, he is an excellent manager, but I was baffled by the decision to leave Dybala on the bench until it was clearly too late. And Morata's performance was pitiful to put it kindly. Juve did not deserve to win this game, in my opinion, Villarreal did. They wanted it more. Hats off to them.
Allegri is not to blame….the players just lack pride,losing in such an embarrassing manner.
That's why agnelli wants to take out these teams and create a super league
Champions league week with away teams victory
PL and La Liga always a notch above any other European league. And that's statistically true for the past 20 yrs.
Oh NOOOO Juventus didn't qualify?? And I thought Ronaldo was the problem… Ajax, Lyon, POrto and now Villareal(4 goals)
No direct shoot till 78 minute and they beat us with penalties and lucky goals..
Leaving spurs has always been great for players, they win titles.
Danilo and Vlahovic worst players of match
kick out allegri
I have always thought emery would do a good job at dortmund
Villareal and Sevilla deserve a lot of credit for their results on such low budgets!
Juventus are just not cut out for the champions league. I watched them mess up against weaker teams in the past three years, and I guess the streak's still going. Them and PSG just love to disappoint people.
We had chances in the first half that we should have converted but didn’t and got exactly what we deserved.
Juventus need investment? The richest club in serie A who hoover up the best players from every club at their whim? It’s not investment that they need. Not at all. They need identity. They play a brand of football that is antiquated and will never win or get close the CL.
Can't wait for Villarreal against Man City. I feel this draw will happen and Villarreal can surprise all of you
First 4 ties –
Home teams to QF
Next 4 ties –
Away teams to QF
Embarrassing juventus. Allegri should never back to this.
But I thought Vlahovic was better than CR7 and Ronaldo was the problem. Imagine being this wrong about something.
Not surprised, they both at the same level, juventus and man united not at the same level as it used to be , may b juventus slightly doing better ?
Let's not forget that they are the current Europa league champs.
Sack this stupid coach. He's horrible, the only thing noticeable about him his long nose, as he imitate one of the Simpsons. character.
villarreal ??and congratulations
3 Spanish teams, 3 English teams and 2 the rest
Good ebenning knock out
It's become impossible to defeat Spanish clubs in ucl/uel, seems like la liga clubs become god like in uefa competition, clubs of other leagues really need to find a way to overcome la liga clubs because they have dominated all other clubs for so many years now
Its embarrassment for Juve and whole Italian football. On Juve side, they
need to hide under the rock for three years and get rid of the muppets the have on and of the pitch. On Italian football, its gigantic shame where they are compere to the 10-15 years ago yeah teams are improving but within their own Italian microcosm but for Europe its not big enough. Italian league can be entertaining because 5-6 teams are equally poor but it does not mean its good quality.
Villarreal deserve lot of credit and Spanish teams are still dominating in Europe along with English teams and mediocre of Italian teams is somewhat surprising
Always good to see juventus losing
Not a single team from the Serie A in the Champions League Quarterfinals. Says a lot
