Last-gasp Ronaldo goal sees Real Madrid through

Real Madrid survived a Champions League scare last night, edging Juventus 4-3 on aggregate after two stunning games of football.

The home side continued to struggle on offense and when they did breach the Bianconeri wall, Buffon was always there to dispel the danger, making an outstanding stop against Ronaldo.

While Juventus players raged at the awarding of the penalty, Marca's front page simply reads "It was a penalty!", with a picture of Medhi Benatia appearing to push Lucas Vazquez from behind.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 10 Champions League goals against Juventus - the most by one player against a one opponent in the competition.

"I'm disappointed that they say we're through because of the referee".

"We suffered and this will help us to learn".

Madrid won the first leg 3-0 in Turin last week, when Ronaldo scored with a spectacular bicycle kick for his second goal of the match.

The injury time penalty ensured the tie ended with fitting drama, Ronaldo beating substitute keeper Szczesny from the spot after Buffon was sent off when his protests at the spot-kick became too heated for referee Oliver.

Watching from the sidelines, Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane could sympathize.

"You could tell at the time it wasn't a penalty, but seeing the footage back it's just laughable". But I liked it, it was very exciting, and in the end we went through.

Paying tribute to star man Ronaldo, "Zizou" enthused, "Cristiano (Ronaldo) is used to these situations". They played well but we were just average, the difference is we kept believing until the end.
