"We deserved at least to go to extra time, as we had two substitutes left and they could give an important push in that extra half-hour with Real Madrid tiring".

Zinedine Zidane's side would have to learn a lesson from how they allowed Juventus to almost pull off such a dramatic comeback, Ronaldo admitted. "It's a shame it ends like this".

Mario Mandzukic's first-half brace stunned the Santiago Bernabeu before a awful error from Keylor Navas saw Blaise Matuidi wipe out what remained of Madrid's commanding 3-0 first-leg advantage. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd.

The Portuguese had scored in his previous nine games in the competition this season and had been thwarted several times by Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon but kept looking for the crucial goal.

Hanging in the air at the back post, Ronaldo nodded down to Vazquez who looked certain to score from five yards before Medhi Benatia desperately challenged him from behind.

"I have a lot of respect for Buffon, the words he has said about me, and what I've said about him", Ronaldo said. Juventus players stormed toward English referee Michael Oliver, who apparently had help from his behind-the-goal assistant to make the call.

Asked about the penalty, Marcelo said: "The penalty was very clear".

Madrid had conceded three goals at home only two other times this season, in a 3-0 loss to Barcelona and a 6-3 win over Girona. "That allowed their team to grow and it made things hard for us".

The goal was the third of the campaign in the UEFA Champions League.

There was no such irony for Correa, but the 23-year-old will still have been wounded by his late dismissal in Munich.

Mandzukic scored a second minute header to give Juventus a bright start in Madrid.

Mario Mandzukic headed home twice in the first half before Blaise Matuidi capitalised on an error from Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas to keep the Italians' dream alive. Stephan Lichtsteiner made the cross from the right side and Mandzukic beat Dani Carvajal to the ball.

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

"I see a series of countries that implemented VAR and I saw incidents that went against Italian clubs recently, such as the foul on Cuadrado, AC Milan at Arsenal and Juve tonight, proving we absolutely need VAR in the Champions League".
