With the aggregate score at 3-3, Los Blancos were awarded a late penalty when Juve defender Mehdi Benatia was adjudged to have fouled Lucas Vasquez in the box.
While Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for his protests, many other players clashed on the field before Ronaldo ran up to take the spot-kick at the Santiago Bernabeu.
The Portuguese's successful strike sent Los Blancos into the semi-finals of the tournament, much to the dismay of the Juve and their travelling supporters.
According to Marca, who cited a report by Champions Total, tensions spilled over in the tunnel after referee Michael Oliver blew the final whistle.
It has also been claimed that Sergio Ramos could find himself in further trouble as he should not have been in the tunnel after the game as per the rules of his suspension.
The Spaniard missed the match on Wednesday night after receiving a red card in the first leg of the quarter-final tie.
Real, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Roma are through to the semi-finals of the tournament, with the draw therefor taking place on Friday.
