Asamoah joins Atsu and Essien in Champions League progress

Kwadwo Asamoah seal Champions League progress with Juventus

Kwadwo Asamoah became the third Ghanaian player to secure Champions League progress on Wednesday night.

The 23-year-old played the entire duration to help Juventus to a priceless 1-0 victory at Shakhtar Donetsk.

The Italian champions needed only a draw to secure progress with Shakhtar already through to the Round of 16 at the start of the night.

But a 56th minute strike by Sabastian Giovinco was more than what Antonio Conte’s side could have bargained for as they end up winners of Group E with 12 points.

The Ukrainian club finished as runners up with defending champions Chelsea failing to get out of the group despite a 6-1thumping of bottom club Nordsjaelland.

Asaamoah now joins Christian Atsu and Michael Essien who secured progress with FC Porto and Real Madrid respectively on Tuesday.
