Buffon and Allegri explain how Juventus can beat Real Madrid

Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon refuse to be remorseful about his comments on referee, Michael Oliver after he insulted the English referee in their dramatic Champions League quarter final loss to Real Madrid.

Oliver, who also referees in the Premier League, awarded a stoppage-time penalty to Real after Mehdi Benatia was ruled to have fouled Lucas Vazquez.

After the game, Buffon said Oliver had a "bag of rubbish" for a heart.

Given time to contemplate his words, he said that he may have chosen more civilised ones but the sentiment would remain the same.

Buffon broke his silence Sunday, however, the veteran was unremorseful for his scathing criticism of Oliver at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Gianluigi Buffon's exit from the Champions League was probably the least edifying way a legend has ever left such a stage but his manager Massimo Allegri is still backing the Italian legend after his outburst at Michael Oliver.

Cristiano Ronaldo converted the penalty to book a spot for Real Madrid in the semi-finals of the European top flight.

Kidambi Srikanth settles for silver at CWG '18
He was squashed in an utterly dominating manner by Malaysia's three-time Olympic silver medalist Lee Chong Wei. By the time , it seemed like Srikanth started losing the momentum and this is when Lee picked up pace.

He was clearly angry by the incident after Juventus had battled back from 3-0 down in the first-leg to level things up at the Bernabeu.

"I'm sure Oliver will have a great career in future, but he's too young to officiate a match like that". It all ended there, but naturally in the heat of the moment one does feel I'm not saying penalised... I felt defrauded of a night that can never be repeated'.

"Before being a Juventino, I am an Italian, and I really cared about Italian football doing well".

He added: "To be honest I think it is disgraceful, upsetting and deceptive".

"To say that you cannot give that penalty in the 93 minute is not correct, but you must be 10 percent sure to give it, even if it is in the first minute".

"I won't accept that a referee is in charge of a game like this with two such high-profile teams and doesn't have the character, courage or ability to make calm decisions". Following the result, Buffon launched a scathing attack on Oliver's decision.
