Champions League belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo as Juventus come back to beat Atletico

TURIN, Italy -- Last month in Madrid, Atletico Madrid were entirely dominant against a Juventus side that offered absolutely no attacking threat and won 2-0. On Wednesday in Turin, Juventus were entirely dominant against an Atletico side that offered absolutely no attacking threat and won 3-0 to advance, seemingly against the odds.

This was the archetypal two-legged European tie, a contest that outlines the difficulty of playing away from home in a hostile atmosphere. It was essentially won by the...

Alvaro Morata looks like he's found home at Atletico even with his Real roots

Morata's arrival at Atletico was greeted by some scepticism initially but his early form and fit shows that it might be the best club for him.

Goals define strikers. The type of goal, the moments in which they are scored, what they signify. In which case I wonder whether Alvaro Morata has noticed that three of his most important goals came for Juventus and Chelsea against the two biggest clubs from Spain's capital?

A year after Real Madrid put Atletico through the greatest misery in their history, equalising in the Lisbon Champions League final with seconds left and then winning 4-1 in extra time, Morata, wearing the black and white of...

Alvaro Morata can reboot himself on loan, a system that helped Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane become stars

The ball floated down from the heavens and it seemed that his time had come.

With his team trailing by a goal and one of the world's greatest defenders in pursuit, the forward outstretched the toes of his right boot and brought down the pass as gently as a firefighter catching a child thrown from a burning building. His second touch was arguably more delicate still, a swirling lob that soared over the head of the approaching goalkeeper and, with a single bounce, landed in the net. The forward,...

Atletico spoil Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Madrid, Juve's UCL hopes

MADRID -- "I've got five Champions Leagues, you have none," was Cristiano Ronaldo's icy response as he rushed through Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano mixed zone Wednesday night, after the former Real Madrid star's return to his old city had gone disastrously for both him and his new team, Juventus.

A rip-roaring second-half display that ranks with any from Diego Simeone's eight years as Atletico coach brought a 2-0 victory, both goals courtesy set pieces from centre-backs Jose Maria Gimenez...

Wild Champions League Wednesday: VAR effect, vintage Atletico, fortunate Man City

ESPN FC's Craig Burley believes Manchester City showed another facet of their game by coming from behind in a gritty contest against Schalke.

As European nights go, this one was not bad for the neutral. It served up a cauldron of grit, intensity and Diego Simeone magic as Atletico beat Juventus in Madrid, and in Gelsenkirchen, Manchester City narrowly avoided a seismic shock vs. Schalke, thanks in no small part to a local lad, Leroy Sane. Oh, and VAR had a prominent role to play in both games.

Here are eight takeaways from a wild Wednesday:

1. VAR was introduced into the Champions League for only this season's knockout rounds and, one...
