Ronaldo scores late penalty as Real Madrid knock out Juventus

Real Madrid re-joins the race against Barcelona for this superstar

"Life goes on. I'm happy and proud of how we played, we made the impossible possible".

However, Medhi Benatia's challenge on Lucas Vazquez saw Oliver point to the spot at the death as Buffon protested furiously before he was shown red in the Spanish capital - Wojciech Szczesny brought on for a penalty that was blasted past him by Cristiano Ronaldo.

Juve players furiously protested the decision, with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon receiving a red card.

Ronaldo has scored 21 goals in his last 11 matches in all competitions, and has netted in 11 straight Champions League matches.

Marcelo insisted Real Madrid were never going to capitulate like fierce rivals Barcelona after the Champions League titleholders dramatically survived against Juventus.

Juventus doubled their lead nearly identically in the 37 minute, early substitute Stephan Lichtsteiner whipped in an inviting cross to the far post for Mandzukic to rise above Dani Carvajal and stab home.

Then it was Real Madrid's turn to attack, as Gareth Bale came close to answering with what would have been an incredible backheel goal. Zidane went onto say that he is yet to see the incident back but has been advised by many that it was indeed a penalty, and also praised Ronaldo for his composure to score the penalty.


In dramatic fashion, Real Madrid saved themselves from an embarrassing collapse - and probably saved Zinedine Zidane's job.

Having been beaten by the same scoreline at home in the first leg, they looked set to take the tie to extra-time despite being completely written off.

"We started the game saying to each other that we had 0.000001 percent chance of qualifying but you never know in life, especially because we have a team with players with awesome characters who are capable of everything", he said.

He said: "I knew we would be up against it, but I didn't expect what happened in the first minute". The ref awarded it and we can't change that, but I think it was a penalty.

In the 61 minute, Matuidi scored to cancel out Madrid's lead on away goals. For the penalty, my heart was beating hard, but I tried to stay calm.

The victory means that the European champions have now made it to the Champions League semi-finals for the eighth consecutive season, a record for the competition. Los Blancos are favourites to left the trophy for a third consecutive campaign.

AS admitted the European champions went from "the panic to the semi-finals", while Marca simply believed: "It was a penalty".
