UCL Review: Real Madrid stuns Juventus in 93rd minute

UCL Review: Real Madrid stuns Juventus in 93rd minute

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 10 Champions League goals against Juventus - the most by one player against a one opponent in the competition.

Gianluigi Buffon's final Champions League hurrah: Buffon saw his night end in a sour note after being sent off for shoving referee Michael Oliver.

Incensed by the decision, Chiellini referred to last season's controversial quarter-final between Madrid and Bayern, who lost 4-2 at the Bernabeu and 6-3 on aggregate after Ronaldo's extra-time victor came from an offside position, while Arturo Vidal was sent off. The Italian club was indebted to striker Mario Mandzukic, who put the team ahead nearly as soon as the match had started with a powerful header, before replicating the feat nearly exactly 35 minutes later.

Blaise Matuidi pounced to capitalise on Keylor Navas' fumble to level the tie on aggregate before the dramatic ending.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid goalscorer: "My pulse was racing but I stayed calm, I knew it was decisive".

The goal sent Real into the semi-finals for a record-extending eighth year in a row.

Real Madrid have qualified to the semifinals of the Uefa Champions League for the 7th time running beating Juventus to do so after the two legs.

Mandzukic's second goal came with another header in the 37th, after Madrid had created a few good scoring opportunities of its own despite looking lost on defense. He played a ideal ball to the far post, and Mandzukic was able to use his height advantage over Carvajal to bring Juventus within just one goal on aggregate.

Real Madrid regrouped and began to get chances, but 40-year-old keeper Gianluigi Buffon stopped efforts by Isco Alarcon - twice - and Gareth Bale.

"Today Madrid could have scored more, but Buffon and the others did well". Not about the penalty because that's down to interpretation, for me it is and the referee gave it, but the stuff about the robbery. The ref awarded it and we can't change that, but I think it was a penalty.

"We're left with a bitter taste after coming within reach of extra time and being able to really go for it".

The penalty, awarded for a foul by Medhi Benatia on Lucas Vazquez, was greeted with howls of protest although it was exactly the sort of decision which Juve's rivals and critics say tend to go the way of the Turin side in Serie A.
