Ronaldo: 'Heart-rate went up' before penalty

Ronaldo: 'Heart-rate went up' before penalty

Zinedine Zidane's side led their quarter-final tie 3-0 from the first leg but found themselves trailing by the same scoreline in Madrid after Blaise Matuidi added to Mario Mandzukic's first-half brace.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo puts the ball down before scoring their first goal from a penalty.

There was high drama in stoppage time, however, when Real were awarded a penalty and Gigi Buffon received his marching orders for excessive protests.

REAL MADRID appear to have sparked more madness from journalists covering the defending European champions.

Juventus nearly "do a Roma" as Ronaldo saves Real again.

And Wednesday's second leg is believed to have produced a dose of injury-time fury in the press box that rivalled Juve's, as Michael Oliver awarded an injury-time penalty against them.

There was no such irony for Correa, but the 23-year-old will still have been wounded by his late dismissal in Munich. But with Ronaldo in your side, you always have a man who can make decisive contributions and while he was quiet all night, he held his nerve at the death to clinch the tie and help Real avoid another Spanish media post mortem of Barca proportions. "In view of the two legs both teams would have deserved to move on to the next phase".

However, Real's defensive problems were exposed again on the hour.

Bale's night was up at half-time as he and Casemiro were replaced by Zidane's tried-and-trusted duo in Europe of Vazquez and Asensio. Substitutes: Stephan Lichtsteiner (for De Sciglio, 17) 7, Wojciech Szczesny (for Buffon, 90) 3.

Ronaldo finally got the vital goal they had craved to pile more misery on the Italians, who were beaten 4-1 by Madrid in last season's final in Cardiff. Ronaldo picks out the run of Isco with a killer pass, but the Spain international's shot is brilliantly blocked by Buffon.

Marcelo was next to come close for Real Madrid just before the 30-minute mark, but the Brazilian saw his powerful drive miss the Juventus crossbar, before Toni Kroos had a goal-bound strike blocked by Pjanic.

That deficit made Wednesday's return leg seem like an impossible task for Juventus but it got off to the flawless start when Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring with a header two minutes into the match.

Real Madrid nearly registered in the latter stages of the first half when Raphael Varane met a free kick from Kroos, but the Frenchman saw his effort hit the crossbar before Juventus cleared their lines.
