Lyon sprung a surprise on Friday as they knocked Juventus out of the Champions League to set up a quarterfinal meeting with Manchester City.

Juve won 2-1 on the night but Lyon's 1-0 win in France prior to the lockdown meant they progressed on away goals. 

A Memphis Depay penalty gave Lyon the lead in Turin, but Juve got back into the game through a penalty of their own. 

Depay was the villain this time -- in truth both spot kicks were debatable -- when he was adjudged to have hand-balled and Cristiano Ronaldo scored from the spot. 

Ronaldo scored a stunning second after the break to set up a grandstand finish but the Serie A champions were unable to muster up a winner. 

The emphasis was on Ronaldo, whose hat-trick knocked out Atletico Madrid in a stunning comeback last season, but it wasn't to be this time. 

The fire went out on Juve's Champions League campaign as Lyon progressed to meet City, who beat Real Madrid 4-2 on aggregate.
