Ronaldo: Juve have no reason to protest

Ronaldo: Juve have no reason to protest

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who was suspended from the second leg encounter was watching the game from the stands but came down to the dug-out in the second half as he watched his side surrender a three-goal advantage.

Marcelo insisted Real Madrid were never going to capitulate like fierce rivals Barcelona after the Champions League titleholders dramatically survived against Juventus. But Juventus' heroics came up just short after substitute Lucas Vazquez appeared to be pushed from behind inside the area in the third and final minute of stoppage time.

Gianluigi Buffon's final Champions League hurrah: Buffon saw his night end in a sour note after being sent off for shoving referee Michael Oliver. The Madrid crowd at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium gave Buffon a standing ovation as he left the field.

"Buffon said what he said". We were not good, and we have to admit that. "It's a shame it ends like this".

Like Barca and also Liverpool against City on Tuesday, Madrid conceded an early goal as Mario Mandzukic converted inside a minute and a half.

Because in the 60th minute, Keylor Navas was unable to hold onto Douglas Costa's cross, and it fell right to Blaise Matuidi, who equalized for Juventus.

Ronaldo admitted he had to calm himself down before stepping up and slotting home his 120th Champions League goal, followed by a shirtless celebration. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd.

Guardiola Rules Aguero, Stones Out; Wary Of "Fantastic" Spurs
In football, in sports. [In 2016], never before, in the National Basketball Association finals, one team recovered from 3-1 down. " Of course it can happen , I assure you", Guardiola said about City's prospects of throwing away the title.

Cristiano puts his penalties away most of the time. "If he's not fouled, Lucas scores".

It drew parallels with Real boss Zinedine Zidane when his France playing career ended with a sending off at the 2006 World Cup final for a headbutt on Italy defender Marco Materazzi.

Could we actually see another team overturn a 3-goal deficit in consecutive days?

"The Champions League is unforgiving and you have to be focused for the entire match", Vazquez said.

"It wasn't an issue of VAR, because the referee still needs to have courage and a conscience", said the 33-year-old.

Massimiliano Allegri's side were on course for the greatest shock in Champions League history as they took a 3-0 lead in the Spanish capital.
