Cool Ronaldo breaks brave Juve hearts

 

By Carl Markham

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri admitted last night's heartbreaking Champions League defeat to Real Madrid left a "bitter taste".

Cristiano Ronaldo's injury-time penalty put the holders through to the semi-finals, 4-3, after holding off a stunning Juventus comeback from 3-0 down from the first leg to 3-3.

A Mario Mandzukic double and Blaise Matuidi goal levelled the tie on aggregate but Ronaldo's coolly taken 97th-minute penalty into the top corner came after Medhi Benatia brought down Lucas Vazquez in the box.

Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, in what might be his last Champions League appearance, was sent off by English referee Michael Oliver following his fierce protests.

"I have a bitter taste as we didn't have the chance to go to extra-time," said Allegri.

"Both sides would've deserved that I think. Small details changed the whole tie unfortunately. I had two more substitutions planned for extra-time and I was confident we could do it."
