Man Utd flop Memphis Depay scores Panenka as Juventus crash out despite Cristiano Ronaldo double

MEMPHIS DEPAY scored an outrageous Panenka penalty to help send Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus crashing out of the Champions League.

The former Manchester United flop, 26, was a man lacking confidence during his two years at Old Trafford.

But he showed bags of it as he cheekily sat Wojciech Szczesny down to chip his penalty down the middle.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored either side of half-time to make it 2-2 on aggregate but he, nor any of his team-mates, could find the crucial third goal as the Ligue 1 side progressed to the quarter-finals on away goals.

Lyon were gifted the perfect start as Federico Bernardeschi slid in on Houssem Aouar inside the Juventus box with ten minutes on the clock at the Allianz Stadium.

And captain Depay stepped up with a short run up... and dinked it.

That made sure he maintained his 100 per cent goalscoring record in Europe's elite club competition this season.

After netting in all five of his previous appearances in the competition, Depay joined Ruud van Nistelrooy as the second Dutchman to score in six consecutive Champions League games.

With Lyon going into the second leg with a 1-0 advantage from way back in February, the goal made it 2-0 on aggregate.

Juventus therefore needed to score three in order to go through.

The Old Lady were given an almighty lifeline just before half-time.

Depay tried - and succeeded - to keep his arm tucked in as Miralem Pjanic struck a free-kick... but the referee pointed to the spot and Ronaldo made no mistake.

That made the Holland international the first player to score and concede a penalty in the Champions League since Opta's data collection started in 2003/04.

Then on the hour mark Ronaldo banged in his second to level the tie, belting in a stunning strike with his left peg which was simply too quick for Anthony Lopes.

But Juventus needed a third to go through due to the away-goals rule.

And they could not find it as Ronaldo wasted the best chance of all, failing to keep his header down as Juventus' - and Gianluigi Buffon's - long wait for European glory goes on.
