Champions League: Real deserves to win- Ronaldo

Champions League: Real deserves to win- Ronaldo

Real Madrid will be the semi-finals for the eighth successive time.

While Juventus players raged at the awarding of the penalty, Marca's front page simply reads "It was a penalty!", with a picture of Medhi Benatia appearing to push Lucas Vazquez from behind.

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.

The simple nature of the draw suggest that if anything UEFA has an agenda against Real Madrid (they don't) their opponents in the knockout rounds suggest that if there was wild draw fixing taking place that Real Madrid are not being treated as well as other teams.

Buffon, in particular, was unhappy at the end of the game, as he said Oliver has "a bag of rubbish for a heart", per BBC Sport.

"We did not play well, we must admit it, and it should be a lesson for the future. It's a shame it ends like this".

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.

The Bianconeri made a stunning recovery from their 3-0 deficit in Turin, but unfortunately they could not oust their European champions, who celebrated a 4-3 aggregate win via a last-gasp Cristiano Ronaldo penalty. However, Max Allegri's side enjoyed a dream start, as after just two minutes Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic headed home at the far post from Sami Khedira's cross.

He added to the lead with another header before halftime, and Blaise Matuidi scored the third early in the second half after a blunder by Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Ultimately, Cristiano Ronaldo converted the penalty to send his team to the semifinals.
