Juventus comes up short in bid to overturn Real advantage

The Real Madrid star scored the phenomenal goal in the Champions League quarter-finals The Real Madrid star scored the phenomenal goal in the Champions League quarter-finals

Ronaldo scored three of Madrid's four goals in the quarter-final tie, with a stunning double in the first leg setting the Blancos on their way to what appeared to be an easy progression.

"We are sad for our captain", Benatia said. Nothing is handed to you in football, you have to fight until the end.

The second half began with both teams creating chances, with Madrid looking to bring the game to Juventus rather than sit back and defend their slender lead. "Lucas was pushed from behind and if the penalty was given, it's a goal".

But Ronaldo, in his 150th Champions League appearance, then netted his 120th goal in the competition by converting the penalty with a firm shot into the top corner.

The injury time penalty ensured the tie ended with fitting drama, Ronaldo beating substitute keeper Szczesny from the spot after Buffon was sent off when his protests at the spot-kick became too heated for referee Oliver.

The referee had wasted no time to point to the spot, the ensuing argument over the propriety or otherwise of the decision had threatened to snowball into a chaotic exchange emotions reached boiling point.

'Avengers: Infinity War' sets a milestone before it even premieres
The Guardians movies do tend to have more crude humor and profanity than most films set in the MCU. It's hard to believe that " Avenger: Infinity War " hits theaters in a few weeks.

Did Oliver make the right call?

The Italian veteran, who is set to leave Juventus at the end of the season, was given a standing ovation from the home fans as he walked off the pitch in what is likely to be his last act in a long and eventful career in the Champions League.

Marcelo has aimed a dig at Barcelona over their Champions League exit after Real Madrid squeezed past Juventus on Wednesday evening. And anyway the referee gave it, we can not change that. "We advanced", said Zidane after the match. It finally caught up to the Moroccan, as he gave Real a life line which they duly made expert use of, sending the Bernabeu faithful into a state of delirium after Ronaldo's penalty sailed into the net.

No side had ever progressed after a 3-0 home defeat in the first leg of a Champions League knockout match but the comeback from the night before must have been in the back of the minds of all those watching.

Khedira tried his luck from distance on 25 minutes as the ball dropped into his path, but the German's first-time effort sailed high and wide of the goal. The Italy worldwide was shown a straight red card for his protests, and Wojciech Szczesny's first task was to take the ball out the back of the net after being beaten by Ronaldo.
