Real crash out as Juventus advance

TURIN, Italy -- Marcelo Zalayeta's goal four minutes from the end of extra time gave Juventus a 2-0 win over Real Madrid and a place in the quarterfinals of the Champions League.

The goal followed red cards for Real's Brazilian striker Ronaldo and Juve defender Alessio Tacchinardi after the paid clashed when Ronaldo was hauled down as he raced through on goal.

Juve had forced the match into the extra period when David Trezeguet pulled them level at 1-1 on aggregate 15 minutes from the end of normal time.

The substitute French striker scored with an acrobatic overhead strike from six meters.

Uruguayan striker Zalayeta then beat Madrid keeper Iker Casillas with a half-volley from 20 meters as the match seemed to be heading for penalties.

"We played with great humility, never giving up the hope to beat Real. I was overjoyed after scoring such a decisive goal," said Zalayeta.

Ronaldo had come closest to scoring for Real when he clipped the post in the 50th minute.

A burst of speed took the Brazil striker past the defense from the halfway line before his low cross-shot was diverted on to the woodwork by Gianluigi Buffon.

"We had our chances, but in the end Juve took theirs and went through," said Madrid striker Raul.

"Now we'll have to try to go for the league and give our fans something to cheer about."
