Messi And Ronaldo Eliminated From UEFA Champions League! For the first time in 16 years, the best 2 players in the world have been eliminated at the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League.
Reaching the latter stages and even winning the trophy has become mandatory for the duo. Together, they have won 9 of the last 15 UEFA Champions League editions.
Juventus lost out to FC Porto on away goals. They beat the Portuguese side 3-2 on Tuesday but drew 4-4 on aggregate.
They lost 2-1 to them in the first leg of the last 16. They bow out at this stage for the second consecutive season.
Since spending 100 million on Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018, their best finish in the competition was the quarter-final. They lost out to a youthful Ajax Amsterdam at their own stadium in Turin.
Juve have since been beaten by perceived lower sides Olympique Lyonnais and FC Porto in the last 16 in consecutive seasons.
Their experience in the UEFA Champions League has been extremely retched since they last won it in 2015. Their best placed finish has been a semi-final horror exit to Liverpool in 2019.
Those two are likely to dominate European football for the next 10 years. Messi And Ronaldo Eliminated From UEFA Champions League!
