Football: Victory Beat Juventus On Penalties In ICC Opener
MELBOURNE, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23th july, 2016) - Italian champions Juventus were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Australia's Melbourne Victory in their International Champions Cup game in Melbourne on Saturday. Young Spanish defender Carlos Blanco Moreno put the Turin giants ahead in the 58th minute with a spectacular long-range strike before Jai Ingham equalised for Victory seven minutes from time. The game went to a penalty shootout with the scores level at fulltime. Emil Audero saved from Carl Valeri to give Juventus the early advantage in the shootout before home goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas saved attempts from Roman Macek and Stefano Padovan to give Victory the win.
Moreno, the 20-year-old central defender, looked to have given Juve victory with his stunning goal from near halfway after finding goalkeeper Thomas off his goal-line. But Ingham equalised after a series of intricate passes in the leadup gave his space to fire across Audero into the far corner of the net. Juventus, who won a fifth consecutive Serie A championship this season, will face England's Tottenham Hotspur in their second and final ICC match in Melbourne on Tuesday. Spain's European Champions League finalists Atletico Madrid will play Spurs in the final game of the tournament on Friday.
