Real Madrid needed a goal to advance. Cristiano Ronaldo came through

Mandzukic stunned the Bernabeu once more on the 38th minute when scored nearly a carbon copy of his first with a tidy header at the back-post. The goal was enough to clinch a 4-3 aggregate win for Madrid, as the two-time defending champion reached the semifinals for the eighth straight season.

Gianluigi Buffon, on perhaps his final Champions League appearance before retirement, was sent off for his protests but Ronaldo stayed calm and slammed the spot-kick past substitute goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny into the top corner.

Zinedine Zidane believes Cristiano Ronaldo will be remembered at Real Madrid in the same glowing terms as Alfredo Di Stefano.

Ronaldo, from a similar position from where Mandzukic score his second, failed to find the target with five minutes remaining in normal time. The Madrid crowd at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium gave Buffon a standing ovation as he left the field.

Argentinian journalist Manuel Sanchez who works for Canal El Doce attempted to replicate Cristiano Ronaldo's recent over-head kick against Juventus and landed in the hospital.

When he posted 16 goals in the 2015-16 edition and his personal best of 17 in 2013-14 - the second-highest and highest-scoring Champions League campaigns of all time respectively - Real went on to lift the trophy on both occasions.

"If he did not commit the foul, Lucas would have scored". Ronaldo was given a yellow card after removing his shirt in celebration.

Asked whether Real are now outright favourites for the competition above Barça, Zidane said: "It is better for us not to talk about (that)".

"I don't want to judge what the referee did".

Some will say a ref should not make a massive call - especially a borderline call - at that moment of the game.

"Everything's possible in football".

No side had ever progressed after a 3-0 home defeat in the first leg of a Champions League knockout match but the comeback from the night before must have been in the back of the minds of all those watching.

If Juventus got an early goal, if Real's defence suddenly looks a bit suspect without the absent Sergio Ramos... Keylor Navas failed to collect a cross into the box and Matuidi was in the right place at the right time to poke the ball home for an improbable equaliser.

"For long stretches of the first leg we would have deserved much more than a draw but instead we found ourselves two goals down and a man less", he said.
