The pair did not live up to the expectations until Lucas Vazquez won the penalty for Madrid in added time which was expertly scored by the top scorer in the history of the champion's league, Cristiano Ronaldo.

The tongue-in-cheek inference is that Michael Oliver - the English referee who awarded the late penalty and send of Gigi Buffon - was not qualified to officiate the match.

Juventus were left with what Gazzetta dello Sport described as a mixture of pride and anger after their extraordinary Champions League comeback against Real Madrid was thwarted by a contentious injury-time penalty.

THE Italian press slammed the decision to award Real Madrid a last-gasp penalty at the Bernabeu, insisting Juventus were robbed. They will face one of Liverpool, Bayern Munich or Roma in the semi-finals and will be hopeful of a much more straightforward progression into the final of the competition.

Real Madrid's attack was noticeably more quiet after the first 15 minutes, and he even provided the assist for Mario Mandzukic's second goal.

And Keane was full of praise for the 33-year-old.

Olivier we know very well, we are talking about global players. "But we have had the right spirit to come back and win this game". Conte swiftly responded by hauling off the disappointing Alvaro Morata and Davide Zappacosta for Pedro Rodriguez and Giroud.

It is no surprise that Real Madrid are through to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League for the eighth consecutive time.

AS admitted the European champions went from "the panic to the semi-finals", while Marca simply believed: "It was a penalty". The referee blew the whistle and you can't change that.

"Pulses were racing, but I calmed myself down". "I'm happy and proud of how we played, we made the impossible possible. It's going to be hard, but we're going there to win and they are going to make the most of it".
