  • Gareth Bale's time at Real Madrid could be over after horror show in first-half against Juventus

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo converted a controversially-awarded penalty in injury time here to quell Juventus' stunning comeback as the defending champions lost 1-3 in the second leg but won the Champions League quarter-final tie 4-3 on aggregate.

Ronaldo then stepped up and duly slotted the penalty past substitute goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny with his team moving into the semi-finals 4-3 on aggregate.

And things got worse for Madrid before they got better as Blaise Matuidi levelled the tie at 3-3 following a howler from Keylor Navas, the Costa Rica goalkeeper spilling the ball just yards from goal.

Real were in trouble but they pressed for a late goal that would see them through and were rewarded when referee Michael Oliver pointed to the spot after a Medhi Benatia foul.

"It was not such a clear penalty and that was why at the end of the game we were all angry, but it is normal and if we had not been, we should stop playing football". "Lucas was tackled from behind and if they don't give him the penalty, it's a goal". He is hit from behind.

He added: "It will be more hard after the Champions League match because the effort has been enormous, but we have managed, very well, the three days (since the game) and now we are ready for another league match". That is their game.

UK Believes Russia Has Spied on Skripals Since 2013
Sedwill's letter also says that Britain has evidence that Russian security services have been monitoring the Skripal family. Skripal, 66, and his daughter, 33, were admitted to a hospital after being found unconscious on a public bench on March 4.

"He's a big game player", the pundit said on ITV's Champions League highlights show.

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.

"It wasn't an issue of VAR, because the referee still needs to have courage and a conscience", said the 33-year-old.

"The pulse increased, but I calmed down, and I knew I'd be decisive".

For the rest of the second half, Juventus did well to hold their lead, and for the first time in this Champions League knockout stage, it looked like were headed to extra time...

Zidane refused to reveal his thoughts on the penalty award and believed there had been "too much" made of the incident, instead concerning himself with preparations for Madrid's return to league action.
