Buffon rages as Ronaldo's late penalty puts Real into semi-finals

Buffon rages as Ronaldo's late penalty puts Real into semi-finals

Oliver pointed to the spot after judging Juve defender Medhi Benatia to have fouled Lucas Vazquez as the half-time substitute attempted to convert Ronaldo's imperious knockdown. "It will not take away everything he has done, even if it's a shame to end his Champions League career this way".

Another headed goal by Mandzukic after 37 minutes really had Los Merengues on the ropes, the Croatian only the second Bianconeri player to score a brace versus Madrid, the other being club legend Alessandro Del Piero in 2008. It was the first time Madrid was down 3-0 in the Champions League since losing 4-0 at Liverpool in the round of 16 in 2008-09. He became the only player in Champions League history to score in eleven successive Champions League games.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was at a loss to explain why his side's disappointing La Liga campaign contrasts with their dominant displays in the Champions League ahead of their quarter-final second leg against Juventus on Wednesday.

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas 5, Daniel Carvajal 5, Raphael Varane 6, Jesus Vallejo 5, Marcelo 5, Casemiro 5, Luca Modric 6, Toni Kroos 6, Isco 6, Cristiano Ronaldo 8, Gareth Bale 6.

Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card.

The Croatian worldwide, who scored a highlight-reel goal in last season's Champions League final vs.

The post BREAKING: Last-Gasp Ronaldo Penalty Gives Real Victory Over Juventus appeared first on Channels Television. If there was ever a sign that lightning might strike twice, it was when Mario Mandzukic scored the early goal Juve so desperately needed after just 76 seconds, the fastest goal ever conceded by the Spanish giants at home in the competition.

Lucas Vazquez drew the penalty in stoppage time, absorbing a bump from behind while he attempted to play a Ronaldo cross. Juventus clawed all the way back three minutes later after an error from Navas. "We always want to win everything but sometimes, like this year, we are not consistent", Zidane said.

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. As for the visitors, Massimiliano Allegri made four changes from the first leg. "By conceding the goal after a minute, you drop your head and give them life".

90'+3' PENALTY DECISION! Real Madrid 1, Juventus 3: Extra time loomed when Real Madrid pressed forward, with Ronaldo heading a pass towards Vázquez who was shoved from behind by Benatia.
