3 things that went right for Real Madrid against Juventus

Real Madrid 1 Juventus 4 (agg 4-3): Cristiano Ronaldo nets dramatic 97th minute penalty to send Los Blancos into Champions League semi-finals Real escape Champions League upset
Domingo Copeland | 16 April, 2018, 11:55

Cristiano Ronaldo's injury-time penalty put holders Real Madrid through to the Champions League semi-finals after holding off a stunning Juventus comeback.

But just when it looked like the match was going to extra time, the referee called for a foul on Lucas Vazquez inside the area in the third and final minute of stoppage time.

Oliver hesitated before pointing to the spot, and then came a mass protest by the Juventus players, which led to veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon receiving a straight red card.

While Juventus had an fantastic comeback and defeated Madrid in the second leg, it is Real Madrid to go to the top four (aggregate: 4-3) of the Champions League this season. Lucas is right in front of the goal and if Benatia doesn't bring him down, he scores.

Bayern Munich booked their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League, securing a 0-0 draw against Sevilla at the Allianz Arena to complete a 2-1 aggregate victory.

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

For the first time since 1997, two teams playing each other on the last day of NBA's regular season had a chance to progress to the play-offs at the expense of the other.

"You could tell at the time it wasn't a penalty, but seeing the footage back it's just laughable".

He added: "It will be more hard after the Champions League match because the effort has been enormous, but we have managed, very well, the three days (since the game) and now we are ready for another league match".

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

The Serie A giants had fought their way back from a 3-0 deficit to pull level, but with extra-time looming Cristiano Ronaldo managed to clinch a insane win via the penalty spot. "We could've scored five or six goals tonight, so we ought to be proud".

"We are in the semi-final now and I'd rather talk about the game".

"Since I've been here there's always been a bad performance in this competition and I always believed we would come through", Carvajal said.

"We need to change the referee designator every two or three years".
