Zidane admits his side were great and poor against Juventus

Juventus' legendary keeper completely lost his head after the referee Michael Oliver after the official awarded Real Madrid a last-gasp penalty to ensure their progression to the semi-finals.

Juventus captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon (in black) confronts referee Michael Oliver after he awarded a penalty to Real Madrid in their UEFA Champions League match on 11 April 2018.

"The referee gave a penalty and it's left a bitter taste in the mouth, but I don't want to talk about these incidents".

'I have a lot of respect for Buffon, the words he has said about me, and what I've said about him, ' Ronaldo told RTP after the match.

Ronaldo showed great composure to fire the ball past substitute Wojciech Szczesny - who had replaced Gianluigi Buffon after he was sent off for protesting the decision - to secure a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Giorgio Chiellini said it was the biggest robbery he ever witnessed while the orchestrator of the penalty, Medhi Benatia said Vazquez was on the ground before he even touched him.

"The penalty? I say this: it happens that the referee makes a mistake, it's not a problem in the slightest", Buffon was quoted as saying by espnfc after the game.

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

"A human being can not decide the elimination of a team with such a decision".

Tacconi has also hit out at referee chief Pierluigi Collina and the wider world of Italian football following two dramatic nights for elite Serie A sides in Europe - with Juve's heartbreaking exit coming on the back of an unlikely away goals triumph for Roma over Barcelona.

The Real Madrid forward's acrobatic effort helped his side to a 3-0 lead in the quarter-final first-leg as the reigning champions eventually booked their place in the final four.

While the protests, which lasted several minutes, made little sense to Ronaldo who waited patiently for his chance to wrap up the tie, the Real star took time to console Buffon in the mixed zone after the game. "We have to be stronger than these things and let them fortify us".

"During the game Benatia and the rest constantly kicked us from behind".

A Mario Manzukic brace combined with a Blaise Matuidi goal put Juve back on level terms in spectacular fashion.
