Juventus beat Ferencvaros 2-1 as Alvaro Morata grabs late winner

Alvaro Morata broke the hearts of Ferencvaros after the Spaniard came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner to send Juventus into the Champions League knockout stages.

The result left Juve second in Group G on nine points from four games, three behind leaders Barcelona who also booked a knockout-stage berth with a 4-0 win at Dynamo Kyiv.

The Hungarian minnows took a shock lead through Myrto Uzuni after he finished smartly from a cross to break the deadlock inside 20 minutes.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo made sure Juve weren’t behind for long when he equalised 15 minutes later with a superb low, long-range effort to level things back up before half-time.

It was the Portuguese talisman’s 70th goal at home in the group stages of the Champions League – a joint-record he currently now holds with Lionel Messi. It was also Ronaldo’s 131st Champions League goal.

Juventus continued to push ahead for a second goal but were met by a stubborn Ferencvaros defence and goalkeeper.

However, deep into stoppage time, super-sub Morata popped up at the back post to head the ball in and win all three points at the death for the Italian Champions.
