Two-time champions, Juventus, have been eliminated from the Champions League by Super Eagles' Samuel Chukwueze's Villareal side on Wednesday night.

The Yellow Submarine were held to a 1-1 draw in Spain three weeks ago but pulled a stunning upset in Turin in the second leg of their Round of 16 clash to knock out the Italian giants.

Both sides played a goalless draw for over an hour until Gerard Moreno netted the opener through a penalty in the (78).

Unai Emery's men capitalised and doubled the lead through Pau Torres (85') before Arnaut Danjuma scored another penalty (90+2') to seal the 3-0 win.

Villareal join the likes of Atletico, Real Madrid and Manchester City in the last eight of the competition.
