Watch: Alvaro Morata scores for Juventus in UCL final

Saturday June 6th, 2015

With a dominant Barcelona leading Juventus 1-0 in the Champions League final, a moment of brilliance from the Italian side leveled the score in the second half. 

In the 55th minute, Juventus' Carlos Tevez received a ball in the box and wheeled around with a left footed strike. Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen made the initial save, but the rebound trickled straight to the foot of Alvaro Morata, who converted an easy tap-in. 

Morata's goal leveled the match at one goal apiece. 

Morata, a Spaniard who played for Real Madrid until this season, also tallied the winning goal against his former club in the Champions League semifinal. 


Barcelona is trying to win its first Champions League title since 2010-11, while Juventus is looking for its first European championship since 1995-96.
