Madrid Snatches Candy From Juventus In Added Time

Real Madrid 1-3 Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo’s 97th-minute penalty breaks Juventus hearts as Gianluigi Buffon sees red Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty sent Madrid through

Cristiano Ronaldo rescued Real Madrid from a shock Champions League exit as his injury-time penalty allowed the holders to edge out Juventus in the most dramatic of quarter-finals on Wednesday, taking them through despite a 3-1 defeat.

But English referee Michael Oliver penalised Medhi Benatia for a foul on Madrid forward Lucas Vazquez inside the Juve area and their 40-year-old captain flew into a rage.

Juventus players were outraged by the decision with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon being dismissed in his final Champions League game.

It all came down to Christian Ronaldo converting a penalty in added time to book their place in the last four.

Fans hailed Ronaldo and Zindane for helping the Galatico's reach the semis and predicted a third consecutive Champions League trophy for the royal club when they spoke to Ghanaweb.com after the game.

La Gazzetta dello Sport take a slightly more measured view as they go with "the anger and the pride" in reference to the penalty and Juventus' overall performance.

Croatian striker Mandzukic grabbed an away goal and a lifeline in the tie after just 90 seconds in the Spanish capital and the Juve frontman slashed the deficit to 3-2 on aggregate in the 37th minute. At what was his career's last Champions League, Buffon looked visibly distraught at the so close yet so far victory.

Perhaps unfairly, an irate Gianluigi Buffon was showed a red card for arguing the call, and Wojciech Szczesny was brought on to try to save Juventus' comeback hopes.

We must remember that we beat Real Madrid 3-0 on their own turf and only a insane person would've believed that going in.

"At halftime I told them things had to change and we couldn't continue like this. He scored the penalty and we got the win".

However, he could not resist pointing out that his team were denied a spot kick for a similar challenge on Juan Cuadrado in stoppage time of the first leg.

"Nobody thought we could turn it around, but we believed and it'll help us for the next Champions League campaigns".

Mundo Deportivo claimed Los Blancos have a "Masters in refereeing", insisting: "They are through to the semi-finals in their usual style: a controversial penalty".

"I don't think that he deserves to go out in this way, but there's no going back on it now".
