Carlos Tevez and Alvaro Morata scored as Juventus edged Borussia Dortmund in Turin to keep Uefa Champions League quarter-finals hope alive.

Argentine striker Tevez tapped Roman Weidenfeller’s rebound of Morata’s shot to place Juventus in ascendancy but the lead lasted not quite long as Marco Reus gathered Chiellini’s lost ball to beat Gigi Buffon from the edge of the area.

Morata slot home the match-winner from close range from Paul Pogba’s low cross to return the advantage to Tuesday’s hosts ahead of the return leg in just over three weeks.

Tevez went close on three occasions after the break, Chiellini rose unmarked to head over the top before Roberto Pereyra shot sniffled just off the post.

The win extended the Serie A champions’ unbeaten home run to 47 games.

Juve started the match on the front foot and when Morata’s well-taken shot was fumbled over to Tevez, the former Manchester United and Manchester City striker finished with a simple tap in from five yards out.

Dortmund responded five minutes later when Chiellini lost his footing as he tried to control a routine ball forward and Reus raced in on goal and clinically beat Gianluigi Buffon.

The equaliser saw the visitors regain possession and control of the game in the remainder of the first half but failed to close up spaces at the back.

The Westfalian’s were caught out again by a swift counter-attack just before the break allowing an unmarked Morata to side-foot home from the near post.

The visitors managed to keep their goal clean for the rest of the match and will not hope to orchestrate a home revolt with an away goal already in the bag.
