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. "I'm happy and proud of how we played, we made the impossible possible".

Cristiano Ronaldo's 97th-minute penalty sent Real Madrid to the Champions League last four in memorable fashion, going through 4-3 on aggregate against Juventus after a dramatic 3-1 loss on the night.

Agnelli felt the decision to award the penalty was wrong and claimed Oliver should not have sent Gianluigi Buffon off in what is expected to be his final Champions League game.

Ronaldo admitted he had to calm himself down before stepping up and slotting home his 120th Champions League goal, followed by a shirtless celebration.

90th minute: Benatia push on Vazquez is adjudged to be a foul and Oliver points to the spot.

Gianluigi Buffon's first Champions League red card was Juventus' sixth in the competition against Real Madrid - more than any team has had against another opponent in the competition.

Unsettled on the backline due to the absence of the suspended Sergio Ramos, the Blancos conceded a goal in the second minute when Croatian forward Mario Mandzukic fired home on a cross from Sami Khedira.

Following Liverpool's incredible showing against Manchester City in the Champions League, Real Madrid as the only genuine threat to Jurgen Klopp's team - that's according to Ian Wright. Despite this, the 33-year-old got his opportunity to make the difference right at the end, after calmly slotting in the match-winning penalty in the 97th minute.

Media of Real Madrid's archrivals Barcelona, has also called out the decision to be jaded.

The twelve (12) times champions of the competition went to the Juventus Arena when the two sides met in the first leg of the tie and won by three goals to nothing. During the game, Benatia and the rest were constantly kicking us from behind.

But in fact, it were Manchester United players who got the better of their German rival by scoring two goals in a record period of time and securing the 2-1 win. Not about the penalty because that's down to interpretation, for me it is and the referee gave it, but the stuff about the robbery.

Zinedine Zidane's side had thrashed Juventus 3-0 in Turin and looked likely to cruise into the semi-finals in a home leg that appeared a formality, nearly a dead rubber.

"We deserved to go through to the semi-finals over the course of the tie and we can be pleased with that".
