Alvaro Morata’s Champions League final equaliser vs Barcelona
Former Real Madrid and current Juventus striker Alvaro Morata scored a goal to remember for both clubs of his life as his 55th minute equaliser brought the Italians back from the dead in Saturday’s Champions League final against Barcelona.
Spanish champions Barcelona took on Italian champions Juventus in a true Champions League final in Berlin’s Olympiastadion as both clubs put out their best possible sides in hopes of coming home with not only the distinguished Champions League trophy, but the treble as well.
However, Juventus’ chance took a devastating hit just four minutes into the match when former Sevilla captain Ivan Rakitic took a brilliant pass from Andres Iniesta to score the opening goal against a Juventus side that pride themselves on defense.
But Juventus refused to give up and 10 minutes into the second half, Alvaro Morata, the man who took Juve into this final match over his former club, brought them to life again with a brilliant strike off of a Marc Andre ter Stegen rebound.
