The goals cancelled out Real's resounding win a week earlier but Lucas Vazquez won a last-gasp penalty and Juventus goalkeeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon was given a straight red card for venting his fury at English referee Michael Oliver.

Referee Michael Oliver saw a push on Lucas Vazquez by Mehdi Banatia and the official sent off Gianluigi Buffon after the dramatic scenes that ensued with the penalty decision.

"It was certainly a dubious incident". I did everything to try not to touch him.

"When Gigi spoke about the referee I couldn't understand him, honestly", he said on Sky Sport Italia, per Goal.

Ronaldo showed great composure to fire the ball past substitute Wojciech Szczesny - who had replaced Buffon after he was sent off for protesting the decision - to secure a 4-3 aggregate victory. Giving a penalty like that after a memorable match, sending off someone who has never been red-carded for dissent in his life in my final game, is simply not acceptable.

"I don't know if this will be Gigi's last Champions League game but there were three seconds left and we were close to a historical result, something he saw slip from his fingers".

"We suffered and this has to serve as a lesson for us that in football you can't take anything for granted, you have to keep fighting until the end". If a referee doesn't have the character to walk on this pitch, you should sit in the stands and eat crisps.




"The most important thing is we have the technology, it exists and is in use, so we have to bring it into the Champions League". We weren't even really at risk late on in the game.

"You can not ruin the dreams of a team".

"Clearly you can not have a heart in your chest, but a bin".

"Real Madrid deserved to go through over the two legs", the 40-year-old Italy legend added.

"It's a shame it ends like this, " Buffon said in comments translated by Spanish media.

In a game that seemed to be heading for a fairly tale, it turned into a nightmare, and you could have forgiven the Italian for ignoring any Real player after the game.

The match looked set for extra time, after a Mandzukic brace and Matuidi goal restored parity, however, a last-minute penalty goal from Ronaldo secured progress for Madrid.
