I Don't Understand Protest By Juventus; Lucas Was Pushed - Ronaldo

I Don't Understand Protest By Juventus; Lucas Was Pushed - Ronaldo

English referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot after Mehdi Benatia appeared to foul Lucas Vasquez.

And he slammed home the spot-kick to knock Juventus out after Gianluigi Buffon had been sent off for protesting in what is likely his last-ever Champions League match.

Juventus opened the scoring for the night within the first 2 minutes as Sami Khedria lifted an light cross to the far post which met Mario Mandzukic's head to put them 1-0 up. The crowd got nervous when Mario Mandzukic added his second goal before halftime, and the unlikely comeback was almost complete when Blaise Matuidi scored the third about 15 minutes into the second half.

The game looked to be heading for extra time before a chaotic final few minutes saw even the calmest of players lose control. "The referee must try to be less of a protagonist and give only clear-cut decisions".

Wojciech Szczesny came on to face the decisive strike of the game.

The home side continued to struggle on offense and when they did breach the Bianconeri wall, Buffon was always there to dispel the danger, making an outstanding stop against Ronaldo. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd.

99th minute: Referee blows for full-time.

Who do you think will win the Champions League this season? However, they were made to work hard for their progress to the last four this time around by Sevilla. Manduzic's spellbinding headers lit the fire of hope for the Old Lady and Blaise Matuidi's capitalizing of Navas' error was met by deafening silence by Madristas present.

"We can be proud of what we've done here, and all throughout this Champions League".

"Now we have to forget all of this and focus on the semi-final".

Buffon had been having a brilliant game, saving low from Welshman Gareth Bale and reacting sharply to keep out efforts from Isco and Ronaldo.

Arguably the strongest reaction of all came from the Catalan media, though, who cover the great rivals of Real Madrid, Barcelona.

Real Madrid will find out their Champions League semi-final opponents in the draw on Friday.

Ronaldo set another new record, becoming the first to score in 11 straight Champions League matches.

"Between the first leg and this one, just about everything happened".
