Juve's win over Real Madrid blueprint to break up Europe's ruling class

Carlos Tevez's second-half penalty proved to be the decisive goal, as Juventus secured a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League semifinals.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri was pleased with his side's 2-1 UEFA Champions League win against Real Madrid, but warned they still needed to produce a top class performance to reach the final.

We've heard the warnings for years. How football has become all about the one-percenters. The combination of financial fair play, the Bosman ruling and a boom in commercial and stadium revenue that has disproportionately flowed to the big boys have created a lop-sided landscape.

The ultra-rich get richer. The rich struggle to keep up. The middle class gets hammered. And the poor? Well, they become invisible.

It's hard to deny this. The Deloitte Money League list is imperfect, but it illustrates...

Andrea Pirlo intimated before Tuesday's semifinal first leg against Real Madrid that he will walk off into the sunset if Juventus win the Champions League this season. Tuesday night was one step closer.

Grabbed by Sky Italia immediately after referee Martin Atkinson blew full-time on a 2-1 win, the playmaker felt that he and his teammates had made another statement in this competition to rival their performances against Borussia Dortmund. "We sent the message that we are here," he said. "We want...

The stadium roared with nervous energy. After 12 long years Juventus were back in the semifinals of the Champions League about to play the greatest team in Europe, Real Madrid. The team stepped onto the pitch with confidence, but the fans were somewhat scared; was the Old Lady going to play to her potential or would Cristiano Ronaldo and co. destroy her usually strong defence?

Juventus started the match in confident fashion, playing a direct style of football while demonstrating their fluid passing...

Three observations from Juventus' 2-1 victory Tuesday over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal.

1. Tevez the hero as Juve show they are a force to be reckoned with

Carlos Tevez was the Juventus hero with a goal and assist as his team shocked Real Madrid in Turin. Tevez was a pivotal player in the game right from the start, causing all kinds of havoc by floating off strike partner Alvaro Morata and regularly finding pockets of space amid the disorganisation of Madrid's...

Champions League in danger of losing its appeal by becoming too predictable

Take a By The Numbers look ahead of the Champions League semifinal first legs, as Real Madrid search for consecutive Champions League titles and Bayern Munich aim to continue their dominance at the Camp Nou.

The rhetoric is already being ramped up. Sergio Ramos has described the first leg of Real Madrid's Champions League semifinal with Juventus as one of "three finals" for Carlo Ancelotti's team this season. Lionel Messi is busy insisting that the prospect of meeting Pep Guardiola is not motivating Barcelona's players; Thomas Muller is confident his coach's intimate knowledge of his former club gives Bayern Munich the most slender of advantages.

This week is one of those rare occasions when the hype...

Allegri utilising a bold approach for Juventus against Real

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner believes Juventus are being overlooked ahead of their Champions League semifinal clash with Real Madrid, but Alejandro Moreno feels that if Massimiliano Allegri's side are to challenge they must perform well at the Bernabeu.

There is no doubt about it; the Champions League semifinal match against Real Madrid will be the most difficult test Juventus will face this season. European champions and a squad brimming with talent, experience and courage of conviction, Real boss Carlo Ancelotti is right: Whoever demonstrates more fear will lose.

Juventus fans have to be realistic. Their team is arguably the weakest team among the four semifinalists, despite all that they have achieved and the excellent balance they boast within...
