Reports: Real Madrid & Juventus Stars Clash In Tunnel

By Kurt Buckerfield - Apr 12, 2018 12:30 PM @KurtLaduma

Tempers flared during Real Madrid and Juventus' UEFA Champions League clash following Cristiano Ronaldo's last-minute penalty on Wednesday, which reportedly led to some players clashing in the tunnel after the game.

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.

The referee was 100% correct, it doesnt matter the time the penalty was awarded , what matters is was there a faul on lucaz vascuez ? and the answer is yes there was, and then if there is a faul in the 18 yard what was the referee supposed to do? ignore it in protection of the others ? because they desperately need the competition, i mean come on

soft penalty, regardless of who u support. they should hv done an honourable thing n just pass the ball time the side n allow the match to go to extra time' since the ref crumbled under pressure that match was too much for him. fair play Ronaldo n Real. we all want u to win' just not like this.... controversy

Editor stop trying to manipulate & confuse the already confused anti-Madrid fans, we know you are a Barca fan so stop asking ridiculous questions....that penalty was legitimate & if anyone has a problem must write to FIFA.
