Real Madrid 1 v Juventus 3 - story of the match

Real Madrid 1 v Juventus 3 - story of the match

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.

In what can be touted as one of the most dramatic decider matches in the history of UEFA Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo's injury-time penalty kick is in the eye of the storm.

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.

But Madrid managed to deny the rallying visitors after Lucas Vazquez was fouled by Medhi Benatia - Cristiano Ronaldo stepping up to convert the stoppage-time goal.

We saw 90 minutes of an awesome game with such a courageous effort from Juventus coming back from 3 goals down away from home and leveling it in Madrid.

"We suffered and this will help us to learn".

Zinedine Zidane believes the negative reaction to Real Madrid's last-gasp win over Juventus has been "disgraceful, upsetting and deceptive", and borne out of jealousy towards the European champions.

"In football, nothing is given away, you have to fight until the end".

With substitute keeper Wojciech Szczesny on the goal line, Ronaldo sent a blast into the top corner to win the tie for Real Madrid with his 15th goal of the current Champions League campaign.

Real Madrid then went on to enjoy large spells of possession, which led to Isco pinching the ball in the back of the net from close range; but the goal was disallowed due to him being marginally offside. If they didn't provoke the penalty, it would've been a goal.

The Reds have reached the semi-finals for the first time in 10 years and will be hoping to add a sixth main European title to their trophy cabinet.

"We started the game saying to each other that we had 0.000001 percent chance of qualifying but you never know in life, especially because we have a team with players with unbelievable characters who are capable of everything", he said.

"I don't think that he deserves to go out in this way, but there's no going back on it now".
