By any measure, last night was tough on Juventus. A heroic performance at the Bernabeu to take a 0-3 lead, only to be denied by a soft penalty at the death. Juventus are the pin-up boys for cheating in football, Oldco Rangers failure to register second contracts pales into insignificance to what the team from Turin were doing over the same period.
As I watched the pains of injustice on the faces of Buffon and his teammates I wondered how they feel about the titles some of them still claim to have “won on the field.” Or, whether their perpetual fouling and gamesmanship against Celtic in 2013 even merits a memory.
I didn’t care either way who won last night but Juventus going out feeling cheated seems about right.
