UCL Review: Real Madrid stuns Juventus in 93rd minute

Cristiano Ronaldo's contentious late penalty gets Real Madrid out of Champions League jail

Real Madrid reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in midweek as Cristiano Ronaldo came to their rescue to fire them past Juventus with an injury-time penalty victor.

Madrid had won 3-0 in the first leg in Turin last week, when Ronaldo scored one of his two goals with an unbelievable overhead kick.

Theirs had been a monumental effort and just when it seemed as if the night was heading for 30 more minutes of drama in the shape of extra time, Madrid won a penalty after Medhi Benatia appeared to shove Lucas Vazquez in the back.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, sent off for his furious protests over the decision, bitterly criticised referee Michael Oliver immediately after the match, saying he was out of his depth and should have been in the stands eating crisps.

The first of the targets was a research center near the capital city of Damascus; 76 missiles were launched against the center. He did not rule out sarin use.

The Bianconeri made a stunning recovery from their 3-0 deficit in Turin, but unfortunately they could not oust their European champions, who celebrated a 4-3 aggregate win via a last-gasp Cristiano Ronaldo penalty.

Goalkeeper Roberto knows his team-mates face a tough challenge against fourth-placed Madrid and told the club's official website: "Obviously, we know the rival we're up against, the quality they have and the moment they're at, which is what we have in mind when preparing for the game. Lucas [Vazquez] was brought down from behind and if they don't give him the penalty, it's a goal", Ronaldo added. We're in the semi-finals and we're happy with that.

The Real Madrid academy graduate kept getting into good positions throughout the second-half and also contributed heavily to their defensive play.

The Italian veteran, who is set to leave Juventus at the end of the season, was given a standing ovation from the home fans as he walked off the pitch in what is likely to be his last act in a long and eventful career in the Champions League.

And Keane was full of praise for the 33-year-old.

It was Juventus that got a rather surprise early opener in the 2nd minute as Sami Khedira produced a handsome lofted cross into the box, where Mario Mandzukic rose highest to head the ball straight under the crossbar and beyond the goalkeeper to make the scoreline. 0 - 1.

The Spaniard was involved in a verbal exchange with Allegri near the final whistle after Ronaldo tucked his penalty away.

"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 can talk about the penalty: for me, it is, and for others it isn't.
