UCL: Juventus cruise past Porto into quarter-finals

Italian champions Juventus eased into the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday with a routine second-leg win against Portuguese league leaders FC Porto.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg, Juve sealed the tie when Paulo Dybala drilled in a low penalty kick after Maxi Periera was sent off for handball.

The hosts played the second half at a canter as they reached the last eight for the second time in four years.

Striker Gonzalo Higuain went closest to a second when he fired wide.

Juve are joined in the last eight by English champions Leicester City, who beat Sevilla in Tuesday’s other game.

Newsverge reports that the quarter-final draw will take place on Friday.
