Real Madrid v Juventus - story of the match

Ronaldo is a huge influence on his son and he has high hopes he can go on to harness his skill

Real Madrid had been trailing 0-3 on the night and the game was on the verge of going into extra-time when the English referee judged Medhi Benatia's slight contact on Lucas Vazquez was enough for him to give a penalty. Nothing is handed to you in football, you have to fight until the end.

Friday will see the semi-final draw, where Bayern, Roma, Real Madrid and Liverpool will learn their opponents for the two-leg semi-finals, which commence at the end of April, with the return legs scheduled for the beginning of May. Soccer can be cruel, and it's beyond cruel that the one thing missing from the Italian's resume is a Champions League winner's medal.

"They played a great game, with a very good plan from their coach", Zidane said.

But Juve had made the impossible possible, having cancelled out a 3-0 deficit from the first leg, to lead by the same scoreline at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Gianluigi Buffon was sent off in the aftermath, exploding at referee Michael Oliver, leaving his backup, Wojciech Szczesny to defend the decisive PK.

Before the break, Mandzukic would score another header to set up a thrilling second-half.

93rd minute: Buffon remonstrates too vociferously, screaming and pointing his finger in the direction of Oliver and is shown a red card.

Gianluigi Buffon's Champions League career ends in carnage
Mandzukic would score against with just under 10 minutes to go in the first half, and the comeback was on. So controversial, and a moment soccer fans will not soon forget, even Juventus fans who will want to.

Buffon was sent off in what is probably the final Champions League appearance of his career.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon charged toward Oliver to protest the decision, and may have shoved him; video is shaky and other Juventus players swarmed around the official. His team blew a three-goal advantage from last week's first leg in Turin, but managed to book their place in the semi-finals with a Cristiano penalty on 93 minutes.

Mario Mandzukic's first goal after 76 seconds was the fastest that Real Madrid have ever conceded in a Champions League home game. Juventus clawed all the way back three minutes later after an error from Navas.

"What I did not expect is in minute one to score a goal", Zidane said.

"We can not play with the hope that we change everything in the first 20 minutes", Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri said on Tuesday. "That allowed their team to grow and it made things hard for us".

"In this situation, it meant the possibility to move forward in the Champions League when we deserved extra time". The Italy global was shown a straight red card for his protests, and Wojciech Szczesny's first task was to take the ball out the back of the net after being beaten by Ronaldo.
