General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +2 M. Vučinić gets yellow.
What an awful cross that is! Lyon press in search of a goal that would change the tie somewhat, but the ball lumped into the penalty area from 30 yards out bounces out of play. Garde can be pleased that his side have looked reasonably solid, but offensively they've been lacklustre.
90' +1 Excellent clearance from Chiellini! The Juventus defender tracks his runner and ensures that a cross from the left hand side doesn't meet substitute N'Jie, nodding the delivery behind for a corner. Safety first for the Old Lady at this point.
90' We have three minutes of stoppage time at the end of this second half.
89' C. N'Jie enters the game and replaces J. Briand.
Giovinco has been causing all sorts of problems since coming on, scampering around the penalty area and frightening the Lyon defenders. Nobody wants to challenge him in fear of conceding a late penalty.
87' Only a few minutes remain for Lyon to find a very important goal! They can still throw the cat among the pigeons with a couple of away goals in Turin, but as the hosts average a goal per game in Europe, it would seem mathematically sensible to try and head to Italy on level terms.
86' N. Fekir enters the game and replaces S. Malbranque.
84' L. Bonucci has scored a goal for Juventus!
VUCINIC! WHAT A CHANCE! Giovinco works his way down the left flank brilliantly, before cutting a cross back to the corner of the six yard box. Vucinic is able to control the ball with his chest, but fires over the crossbar when it looked easier to score!
GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! WE HAVE A GOAL AND IT'S BONUCCI! A Juventus corner avoids poor clearances from both Gomis and Kone, before Pogba is found at the back post! Mvuemba makes the block from the Frenchman's first attempt, but at the second bite of the cherry the defender rifles the ball into the roof of the net!
83' BRIAND! MALBRANQUE! The former is found at the back post, stretching to reach a back post cross and succeeding it cutting the ball back square into the box instead of letting it run out of play. Malbranque rises but can't make contact with the cut-back with his head, which would have turned the ball beyond Buffon from six yards!
82' A pitch invader makes his way onto the field, but the break in play is minimal as the pitch-side security detain their offender quickly. Chiellini shares a few jokes with the referee, but we're back underway quickly.
81' Ten minutes left on the clock and Juve look as though they're on the hunt for an away goal. Lyon break upfield, before Malbranque feeds Briand on the edge of the penalty box. Briand tries to find Gomis in space on the right hand side, but Chiellini is on hand to make a vital interception.
