3 things that went right for Real Madrid against Juventus

Gareth Bale

English referee Michael Oliver awarded Real a penalty with the game seemingly heading for extra-time as Medhi Benatia brought down Lucas Vazquez, with Gianluigi Buffon sent off for protesting on his last Champions League appearance.

Juve goalkeeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon angrily protested the decision before he was sent off for the first time of his storied career in the Champions League.

Juventus were left with what Gazzetta dello Sport described as a mixture of pride and anger after their extraordinary Champions League comeback against Real Madrid was thwarted by a contentious injury-time penalty.

It was a 15th Champions League goal this season for Ronaldo, playing his 150th CL game, and he has now scored in 11 consecutive games in the competition.

With the aggregate score at 3-3, Los Blancos were awarded a late penalty when Juve defender Mehdi Benatia was adjudged to have fouled Lucas Vasquez in the box.

Madrid won the first leg 3-0 in Turin last week, when Ronaldo scored with a spectacular bicycle kick for his second goal of the match.

"We suffered, but we need to learn from this".

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.

Prenderville also relayed a section of La Repubblica's report, in which it said Juventus went from "the dream to the apocalypse". "What happened at the end of the game won't change or take anything away from what he has done in the game", Zidane told his press conference after the tie in Madrid. "You have to respect his point of view but I think we deserved to qualify for the semi-finals".

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

I knew I'd be decisive. But I liked it, it was very exciting, and in the end we went through.

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

"There are many people who remember Di Stefano, it is normal - many people, and I am one of them, will now remember Cristiano with this club".

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