    Carlos Tevez celebrates after converting his penalty against Real Madrid.

    Former Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata came back to haunt his old club as he sent Juventus on their way to a 2-1 victory over the holders in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal on Tuesday.

    Morata, who moved to Juventus last summer shortly after helping Madrid to a record 10th European Cup title, didn't celebrate after scoring the opening goal in the ninth minute.

    Cristiano Ronaldo overtook Lionel Messi to become the competition's all-time top scorer with Madrid's equaliser in the 27th minute but his former Manchester United teammate Carlos Tevez also continued his fantastic season as he restored Juventus' lead from the spot shortly before the hour after being brought down by Dani Carvajal.

    Juventus, who last won the competition 19 years ago, will continue their bid to reach their first final since 2003 in the return leg in Madrid on May 13.
