March 10 (UPI) -- The UEFA Champions league will continue without one of the world's best soccer players, as FC Porto eliminated Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus in the round of 16.
Ronaldo's Italian Serie A squad won the second leg of the round of 16 matchup 3-2 Tuesday in Turin, Italy, but lost the series because they didn't score as many away-game goals as their Portuguese counterparts.
Porto beat Juventus 2-1 in the first leg Feb. 17 in Porto, Portugal. Because the teams split the series and the aggregate score from the two games combined was 4-4, the away goals scored was the next tie breaker used to determine the team that advanced to the quarterfinals. Porto won that tiebreaker because of its 2-1 edge in road scores.
Porto midfielder Sergio Oliveira scored twice in Tuesday's loss to help his squad advance.
"It's a unique feeling to score two goals here," Oliveira told reporters. "I'm very happy for the qualification. It's a reason of pride for the club and the country.
"To come here, score two goals and reach the quarterfinals is a reason of pride for everyone. For me, it means I helped the club reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League. It's a reason of pride because I've been at the club for many years."
Oliveira put Porto ahead with a 19th minute penalty kick in the first half. Oliveira's goal remained the only score through the first half.
Juventus left wing Federico Chiesa then netted an equalizer about five minutes into the second half. Ronaldo collected a chipped pass in the box to spark that sequence. The star striker tapped his first touch to the ground, where Chiesa stood and patiently ripped a shot into the upper right portion of the net.
Chiesa then put Juventus up 2-1 in the 63rd minute. Juventus right back Juan Cuadrado sparked that score. The defender did a give-and-go pass sequence near midfield and then ripped a cross toward the far post. Chiesa ran onto the feed and headed a shot in past Porto keeper Agustin Marchesin in the 63rd minute.
That score made the aggregate score 3-3, with each team having an equal total of road goals. Neither team scored another goal through regulation, which prompted extra time.
Oliveira then tied the score at 2-2 in the 115th minute, with the score putting Porto in position to advance with an edge in total goals and road goals for the series.
The Porto midfielder scored that goal off a free kick from about 25 yards out. Oliveira blasted the low shot just inside the left post to beat Juventus keeper Wojciech Szczesny.
Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot gave his team the game-winning score about two minutes later when he headed in a corner kick from Bernardeschi, but Juventus needed another score to advance on aggregate.
Porto will learn of its next opponent during the quarterfinal and semifinal draws March 19. Borussia Dortmund also advanced to the quarterfinal stage after a 2-2 draw with Sevilla on Tuesday in Dortmund, Germany. Wednesday's Champions League round of 16 slate features Paris Saint-Germain vs. FC Barcelona and Liverpool vs. RB Leipzig.
"The compliments for the performance are nice, but I don't bring home anything positive," Chiesa told reporters.
"There is great regret, because I think we deserved to [advance], especially for the second half. We don't create [excuses] though. We should have [advanced] and we didn't."
Ronaldo and Juventus return to Serie A play for a match against Cagliari at 1 p.m. EST Sunday in Cagliari, Italy.
