Shamrock Rovers' hopes of causing a huge upset in the third qualifying round of the Europa League are all but over after a double from Amauri gave Juventus a 2-0 victory in the first leg at Tallaght Stadium in Dublin.
Shamrock fell behind in just the third minute as the Brazilian striker slotted home after good build up by the Italian giants.
But the hosts put in a gutsy effort to stay in the game and occasionally threaten an equaliser, before Amauri's 75th minute header rounded off an ultimately comfortable success for the visitors.
