Late CR7 penalty keeps Madrid alive in UCL

Late CR7 penalty keeps Madrid alive in UCL

Real needed a controversial injury-time penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo to secure their progress to the semi-finals.

Similar to what happened to Barcelona on Tuesday night, Madrid almost got eliminated from the tournament after conceding three goals at the Santiago Bernabeu but for the timely intervention of Portuguese forward who scored a penalty to push the team through.

Nevertheless, Liverpool have arguably played the most consistent football of any team in the competition this year, and had Real Madrid not been crowned champions the last two years in a row, you would have to fancy the Merseysiders as favourites for the trophy.

"And a dubious incident at the 93rd minute when we had a clear penalty denied in the first leg, you can not award that at this point", he said.

English referee Michael Oliver awarded Real Madrid penalty, while Juventus goalkeeper Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got a red card.

"Life goes on", Buffon said.

The Spaniard was involved in a verbal exchange with Allegri near the final whistle after Ronaldo tucked his penalty away.

Real Madrid on course for another European crown: Los Blancos made history during the previous campaign as they became the first club to win consecutive Champions League titles in the modern era.

That deficit made Wednesday's return leg seem like an impossible task for Juventus but they got off to the ideal start when Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring with a header two minutes into the match.

Blaise Matuidi added a third on the hour mark after a goalkeeping clanger from Real's Keylor Navas.

The penalty came as Vazquez was in position to score in front of the goal after Ronaldo headed down a cross into the area.

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