Cristiano Ronaldo scored a penalty in the dying moments against Juventus to put Real Madrid into the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
 
The LaLiga giants came to into the clash with a commanding 3-0 lead but they were without the services of Sergio Ramos, who was suspended.
 
Ramos' absence was felt as early as the second minute as an unmarked Mario Mandzukic headed past Keylor Navas following a cross from Sami Khedira.
 
Los Blancos looked to hit back and managed to carve out a couple chances, although Gareth Bale and Isco failed to take advantage.
 
The hosts dominated for large parts of the first half but were unable to bypass the Juve defence.
 
The visitors then bagged another goal with 10 minutes left in the half in similar fashion to the first, with Mandzukic heading home Stephan Lichtsteiner's cross to make 3-2 on aggregate.
 
Real nearly pulled a goal back on the stroke of half-time when Raphael Varane rattled the crossbar with a towering header as they went into the break trailing.
 
After a dominant start to the second-half by Real, it was Juve who got the next goal on the hour mark as Blaise Matuidi bundled the ball home from close range after big error from Navas.
 
Varane nearly pulled one back with 12 minutes remaining in the half but he fired wide of the upright from 12-yards out.
 
However, Los Blancos were awarded a late penalty in the second minute of stoppage time, while Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for dissent.
 
Ronaldo stepped up and sent the ball into the top corner to put Los Blancos into the semi-finals with a 4-3 aggregate win.

Buffon complained because it was a very last end of a game,if the game were still having more than 20 minutes he would have not done that

Juve silenced us last night. I could not believe what was happening in our own backyard. I started thinking of the Barca situation. Yoooh, thank you Lucas for being at the right spot at the right time. CR7 as always, delivers decisive result. We were humbled, respect other champions from other leagues. Great match last nite. Congra Madridistas!!

BarCows are hurting more than Juventus, they were already running naked having a party and forgot that a soccer match ends after the final whistle.

CR7 interview. I know it will reach SL Tomorrow “I really don’t understand why they were protesting, but football is like that,” he said. “If they didn’t make the foul, Lucas would score the goal. We’re happy to be in the semi-finals.” Meanwhile, the striker was cool over his long wait before striking the decisive blow to the Italians’ hopes. “I had to reassure myself. I was decisive and thank God I scored,” he said. Despite Madrid’s progress, it was a chastening experience, as the Ballon d’Or winner admitted. “It’s a lesson for us,” he concluded.

@Pholish Moyana I stand to be corrected!! But when I check the penalty happened on the 3rd minute, then there was a red card, Keeper going out, changes.... And in the process time was moving hence the Penalty was taken on the 7th minute. Even if there was no red card it was not going to be taken the same time it happened sir, even in normal play like 57 minutes depending on the time of protest or preparation to kick it,,,, it is usually taken many seconds, a minute after if not minutes. Your hurt must not steal your common sense

Buffon mind game really worked. Navas felt like he is a too keeper and got punished. Zidane must stop his pride and trying to prove a point with Lukas, Vallejos.... They are still growing n hv potential however we need matured players. BB dead too(Benz n Bale)
