Real Madrid v Juventus – story of the match

Cristiano Ronaldo’s injury time penalty sealed Real’s place in the Champions League semi-finals after a dramatic night at the Bernabeu.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored an injury time penalty to book Real Madrid’s place in the Champions League semi-finals after losing the second leg 3-1, but winning the tie 4-3 on aggregate.

Juventus had wiped out Real Madrid’s three-goal advantage from the first leg with Mario Mandzukic scoring twice before Blaise Matuidi levelled the tie at 3-3 after an hour.

But with the tie heading towards extra-time, Madrid were awarded a penalty following Mehdi Benatia’s challenge on Lucas.

Gianluigi Buffon was shown a red card by Michael Oliver for protesting the decision, leaving Ronaldo to score his 41st goal of the season from the spot past substitute keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Star man

Just as he has done so many times before, Ronaldo was the man to pull Madrid out of trouble. His 41st goal of the season spared Real’s blushes after Juventus had come from 3-0 down from the first leg to level the tie at 3-3.

Moment of the match

The injury time penalty ensured the tie ended with fitting drama, Ronaldo beating substitute keeper Szczesny from the spot after Buffon was sent off when his protests at the spot-kick became too heated for referee Oliver.
