Juventus comes up short in bid to overturn Real advantage

    Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo scores a penalty against Juventus in the second leg of the two sides' semi-final match-up.

    (CNN)Last year's Champions League finalist Juventus is out of the competition despite a spirited 3-1 second leg win against Real Madrid Wednesday.

    The Italian giant came agonizingly close to overturning Real Madrid's three-goal first leg lead in the Spanish capital, but instead went down to a late penalty.
    It undid 98 minutes of work by a hard-running, passionate Juve. The Italian club was indebted to striker Mario Mandzukic, who put the team ahead almost as soon as the match had started with a powerful header, before replicating the feat 35 minutes later.
