Ronaldo Doesn't Understand Buffon's Penalty Protests

Ronaldo Doesn't Understand Buffon's Penalty Protests

Today Madrid could have scored more goals, but Juve and Buffon have been good.

Real conceded the opener after just 76 seconds, the fastest they have ever conceded at home in the Champions League. The goal was enough to give the two-time defending champion a 4-3 aggregate win and avoid nerve-racking extra time after the Italian side had erased a seemingly insurmountable deficit from the first leg.

However Real escaped extra-time and possibly one of the biggest upsets in Champions League history after a penalty was awarded when Mehdi Benatia fouled Lucas Vazquez in front of goal following Ronaldo's headed knock down in the third minute of stoppage time.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon charged toward Oliver to protest the decision, and may have shoved him; video is shaky and other Juventus players swarmed around the official.

Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card.

Ronaldo's knockdown looked to have set Vazquez up to score before the touch from Benatia sent the substitute to the ground. "The Champions League does not forgive anyone, we knew how to suffer until the end and that goal puts us in the semi-finals, which is the important thing".

It was by far the more compelling of the pair of Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday.

When Matuidi made it 3-0 and levelled the aggregate scores on the hour, the unthinkable had happened and Real's lead had been erased.

Meanwhile, the BNP's Nick Griffin said today he would back vote for the party because of Mr Corbyn's stance on Syria . Miss Lipman said after the protest: "I think it is time Jeremy Corbyn leaves centre stage because he is malign".

97th minute: Ronaldo despatches the penalty into the top right-hand corner.

"I don't understand the protest by Juventus", Ronaldo told reporters after the game. It was the first time Madrid was down 3-0 in the Champions League since losing 4-0 at Liverpool in the round of 16 in 2008-09.

"He did not deserve that", Zidane said.

Game-changing goals in the closing stages of games tend to add a bit of tension among the written pack in the press box, with hundreds of words deleted and in need of replacements within minutes.

The move comes after Facebook and Cambridge Analytica (CA) submitted responses to the questions sent to them by the IT ministry. Zuckerberg , who co-founded Facebook in 2004, once again admitted the lapses and asked for another chance to lead the company.

Juventus took advantage of Madrid's depleted defense, which had 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo playing alongside Raphael Varane.

"We had some hard moments, especially with scoring goals". Stephan Lichtsteiner made the cross from the right side and Mandzukic beat Dani Carvajal to the ball.

To say the next thirty minutes were tense would be an understatement, but there was to be even more late drama at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. "By conceding the goal after a minute, you drop your head and give them life".
