Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo says he did not understand Juventus players' furious protests - including a straight red card for visiting goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon - at the 93rd-minute penalty which the Portugal worldwide scored to decide Wednesday's dramatic Champions League quarterfinal second leg at the Bernabeu.

Gianluigi Buffon's Champions League quest ended with a display of wild-eyed fury, a red card and bitter recriminations after seeing his Juventus side knocked out in the quarter-finals by Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Analysis: "We suffered we we made far too many mistakes - Juventus got their tactics spot on". He became the only player in Champions League history to score in eleven successive Champions League games. "In the end, he scored it, and that's it, we go home with the victory".

90th minute: Benatia push on Vazquez is adjudged to be a foul and Oliver points to the spot.

Veteran Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, in what was likely his last Champions League game, was then sent off for furiously complaining after the penalty decision. "Well. I'm happy. Over the full 180 minutes of both legs I think we deserved to go through. It's a shame it ends like this".

Elsewhere, it was a more routine affair with Bayern Munich holding Spanish side Sevilla to a goalless draw in the Bavarian city, to advance with a 2-1 aggregate score over the two legs.

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. Juventus clawed all the way back three minutes later after an error from Navas.

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.

98th minute: Ronaldo is booked for taking off his shirt while celebrating in front of the home supporters.

Ronaldo stepped up to beat Wojciech Szczesny after a long delay, continuing his incredible run of scoring in every match of this season's Champions League on his 150th appearance in the competition.

But Vazquez was insistent that English official Oliver made the right call.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri said he had a brief encounter in the tunnel with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who didn't play because of a suspension.

"I do not understand why they protest against the penalty", Ronaldo told beIN Sports.

But Juve's three goals on Wednesday meant Ronaldo's heroics were again required for Madrid.

Real, meanwhile, edge one step closer to claiming an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League triumph, a fourth in five years. "We advanced", said Zidane after the match.

Khedira tried his luck from distance on 25 minutes as the ball dropped into his path, but the German's first-time effort sailed high and wide of the goal.

Ronaldo finally got the vital goal they had craved to pile more misery on the Italians, who were beaten 4-1 by Madrid in last season's final in Cardiff.
