Juventus fall to neighbours Torino overshadowed by fan behaviour

Arturo Vidal and Juventus conceded three points to neighbours Torino for the first time in 20 years.

Torino fans had to wait 20 years, but after so much suffering they finally managed to play Juventus and win, defeating the Old Lady 2-1 in front of their home fans.

It's been a magnificent year for both Turin clubs, especially on a European level. Torino manager Giampiero Ventura, despite the sales of his star assets last summer, continues to amaze with his ability to regenerate and motivate a side that boasts wonderful squad spirit despite their inferior technical ability. Managing rather-outstanding...

Juventus' versatility will cause Real Madrid problems

The ESPN FC crew preview Juventus' Champions League semifinal match against Real Madrid, as Steve Nicol stresses the importance of Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata against Real's defense.

Some of the most epic of games played in the Champions League have been between Real Madrid and Juventus. Similar in philosophy and obsessed with success, there has always been a mutual respect between the two sides, who care more about winning than their style of play. As the draw would have it, two Spanish coaches will face off in one tie, while the Italian tacticians, perhaps the best the country have at this moment, will meet each other in the semifinal of the Champions League.

Before the...

Juventus will need to improve for heavyweight date in semifinals

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri spoke after his side's 1-0 aggregate victory over Monaco in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

After 12 long years of suffering, 12 long years of hardship, struggling with demotion to Serie B, the disgust of mediocrity and the creation of a balanced squad, Juventus are back in the Champions League semifinals.

The quarterfinal second leg performance in Monaco was not what was expected from a team that proved so delightfully technical and tactical in Europe. The squad lacked intensity, composure and attacking ambition. The midfield was incapable of asserting their quality, the forward line...

Juventus in the Champions League semifinals is just like the old days

The ESPN FC crew discuss their dream Champions League semifinal matchups ahead of Friday's draw.

Gianluigi Buffon punched the air and roared -- you could see what it meant to the Juventus captain. Of the current squad, he is the only one who has played in a Champions League semifinal for the Old Lady.

"I thought I wouldn't have to wait as long to get back," Buffon said 12 years on from a famous win in Barcelona, after Juve won 1-0 on aggregate against Monaco on Wednesday night. "But given how hard the road has been to get here, it makes us savour it all the more."

He had been a runner-up in...

Juventus use defence to secure first UCL semifinal spot since 2003

Andrea Pirlo clipped the bar with a superb free kick in what was otherwise a lacklustre draw that put Juventus through to the semifinals.

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson breaks down how Juventus were able to hold off Monaco in a goalless draw in France.

MONACO -- Three thoughts from Juventus' semifinal-clinching scoreless draw with Monaco in their Champions League quarterfinal second leg at the Stade Louis II.

1. Juve reach first semifinal since 2003

When you've not been in the last four of the Champions League for 12 years, it really doesn't matter how you get there. Accordingly, Massimiliano Allegri and his soon-to-be Serie A champions will care little for the manner of their besting of Monaco, and even less that this tie was a million miles away...
