  • I Don't Understand Protest By Juventus; Lucas Was Pushed - Ronaldo

Buffon protested the decision vehemently and was sent off for dissent.

Star forward Cristiano Ronaldo stepped forward and sent the ball into the net to send the Bernabeu faithfuls into a frenzy.

Juventus came out desperate for the opener in a pulsating opening 45 minutes, and got the goal they craved after just two minutes as Mandzukic headed home at the far post from Sami Khedira's deft cross.

Blaise Matuidi brought Juventus level in the tie after capitalising on Keylor Navas' horrific error in the 61st minute, before the late drama at the Bernabeu.

Real join Liverpool, Roma and Bayern Munich in the last-four draw, which takes place in Nyon on Friday at 12:00 BST.

"We showed that Juve as a side and club have grown a lot in the last years".

Juve and particularly captain Gigi Buffon were absolutely furious at the penalty decision. A baffled Buffon vocalized his displeasure and frustration on the referee's face and earned a red card. Then, Gonzalo Higuain came dangerously close to adding a second just 5 minutes later.




97th minute: Ronaldo despatches the penalty into the top right-hand corner. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd. I can't believe they say we went through thanks to the referee, that it was a robbery.

Massimiliano Allegri's side were on course for the greatest shock in Champions League history as they took a 3-0 lead in the Spanish capital.

So Los Blancos won the tie in the end, but as they seek a third straight European Cup crown, they definitely lost their fear factor against Juve on Wednesday night.

Italy's most-capped global Buffon, who is much respected throughout the game, let his emotions overcome him at the end and was dismissed on his 650th appearance for Juve. The dream of a 3rd consecutive Champions League trophy is still alive.

Ronaldo admitted he had to calm himself down before stepping up and slotting home his 120th Champions League goal, followed by a shirtless celebration.

The report also claims that there was an altercation between the unhappy Juventus players and the celebrating Madrid players inside the tunnel as the away side kept hassling referee Michael Oliver regarding the penalty incident well after the game. "But Madrid are happy and in the semifinals".
