Real & Juve Stars Clash In Tunnel

Real & Juve Stars Clash In Tunnel

Just as Juve looked to have sensationally taken their quarter-final to extra time at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo took a maximum-pressure penalty to help Real Madrid survive the most unexpected of scares.

Gianluigi Buffon was infuriated by referee Michael Oliver's decision to award Madrid a penalty in the 93rd minute and was sent off for his aggressive reaction but Marcelo insisted there was no doubt over the spot-kick.

Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo has set yet another Champions League record after their 3-1 loss to Juventus on Wednesday.

In the night's other quarterfinal, Bayern Munich advanced with a 0-0 home draw against Sevilla as the newly crowned Bundesliga champions defended a 2-1 advantage from the first leg.

But Juventus, inspired by AS Roma's giant-killing performance on Tuesday to eliminate Barcelona from the competition, were determined not to go quietly.

Moreover, he has scored at least once in every Champions League match this season.

That deficit made Wednesday's return leg seem like an impossible task for Juventus but they got off to the flawless start when Mario Mandzukic opened the scoring with a header two minutes into the match. We're in the semi-finals. Isco, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio are all in the ascendancy with him at the moment but all were out of the coach's plans earlier in the season.

Japan, China pledge to work on economic ties amid heightened trade tensions
Japan hopes the summit will prompt a trip by Abe to China, and in turn, a visit to Japan by Xi. But the move could backfire, as U.S.

Unbelievably the Turin giants score a third to level the tie on the hour mark, as midfielder Blaise Matuidi capitalised on a bad error by home goalkeeper Keylor Navas to score from close-range.

The home side continued to struggle on offense and when they did breach the Bianconeri wall, Buffon was always there to dispel the danger, making an outstanding stop against Ronaldo.

"We need to change the referee designator every two or three years".

Perhaps unfairly, an irate Gianluigi Buffon was showed a red card for arguing the call, and Wojciech Szczesny was brought on to try to save Juventus' comeback hopes. "Step-by-step, we are going to the semi-finals".

Cristiano Ronaldo, Real Madrid goalscorer: "My pulse was racing but I stayed calm, I knew it was decisive".

"I don't understand why they are protesting", he said to reporters after the game.
