With the game in the 97th minute, Ronaldo made no mistake from 12 yards, ensuring a 3-1 defeat on the night but a 4-3 win on aggregate.

"That was a human reaction and I think he should have been understood".

"We have suffered, we can learn, the game is worth a lesson".

Mario Mandzukic's two first-half headers kept the dream alive before Blaise Matuidi capitalised on a Keylor Navas error to pull the Italians level with half an hour left.

Former Arsenal 'keeper Wojciech Szczęsny came off the bench to face Ronaldo from the penalty spot, but unsurprisingly, the Madrid man produced the ideal penalty, firing high into the net to put his side into the last four of the competition.

Real Madrid were below par but survive to fight another day and join Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Roma in Friday's draw for the last four.

Mario Mandzukic's first-half brace stunned the Santiago Bernabeu before a terrible error from Keylor Navas saw Blaise Matuidi wipe out what remained of Madrid's commanding 3-0 first-leg advantage.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a controversial penalty in added time to send Real Madrid through to yet another semi-final.

Ronaldo hammered the penalty shot into the top corner, and he celebrated by ripping off his shirt and yelling with the Real Madrid fans in attendance. This was a record-strecthing 11th consecutive Champions League game in which he has scored.

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

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.

"If you concede in the first minute, your head goes down, and it gives them life", Zidane said.

Juventus took advantage of Madrid's depleted defense, which had 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo playing alongside Raphael Varane.

Gianluigi Buffon's first Champions League red card was Juventus' sixth in the competition against Real Madrid - more than any team has had against another opponent in the competition.

Ronaldo failed to keep his header down four minutes from time when he escaped the attentions of Lichtsteiner to get on the end of Dani Carvajal's cross, but the Portuguese forward would have the final say.

'We should face and we did everything possible to go through, ' said Marcelo.
