CARLOS TEVEZ SCORED twice and created one as Juventus eased into the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals courtesy of a 3-0 victory at Borussia Dortmund.

The Argentina international, who also scored in Juve’s 2-1 victory in the last-16 first-leg tie in Turin, caught goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller off guard in the early stages of Wednesday’s contest at the Westfalenstadion.

Tevez then played in Alvaro Morata, also on the scoresheet in Turin three weeks ago, to tap home the second with 20 minutes remaining. The former Manchester City man drilled home a third in the 79th minute to cap off a fine individual performance and reward Juve’s counter-attacking masterclass, as they completed a 5-1 aggregate win.

It was no less than the Serie A champions deserved, with Massimiliano Allegri’s men excelling particularly after the break – Weidenfeller twice forced to deny Morata before his goal.

For Juve, progression to the last eight will go some way to silencing the doubters who have voiced claims that they have been largely unable to replicate their domestic form in Europe, on the back of their Champions League group-stage exit in 2013-2014.

Messi’s assist tonight was so perfect it turned Pep Guardiola into a Barca fan again

We know they’re brilliant but Dortmund fans outdid themselves with this pre-match mosaic
