Ronaldo dismisses Juve protests as Real survive Champions League scare

Shannon Reynolds | 12 April, 2018, 05:31

Cristiano Ronaldo could not understand why Juventus protested Michael Oliver's late decision to hand Real Madrid a penalty and a dramatic aggregate win on Wednesday night in the Champions League last four. Real will be looking to put in a few goals in the beginning of the match and kill off this game at the earnest.

The most recent meeting was a UEFA Supercup final matchup in 2001/02 which saw the UEFA Cup winners Liverpool take on the Champions League winners Bayern.

That save proved to be crucial as three minutes later Mandzukic scored with another back post header, this time from Lichtsteiner's cross from the right.

A day after seeing Spanish rival Barcelona blow a three-goal advantage against Roma in Italy, Madrid almost did the same. If it is to be the 40-year-old's European farewell, it was a sad way to end. Against Real Madrid, he did it again, replacing the more conservative full-back Mattia De Sciglio.

It was all Los Blancos after that as they attempted to turn the tide.

Roma eliminate Barcelona from CL
FC Barcelona chief coach Ernesto Valverde said in a statement: "They took risks and we couldn't cope with all that deep pressing. The first goal gave them strength and then they got a second and third in the second half".

"The minutes before taking the penalty felt eternal", he said.

It was all quite reminiscent of Madrid coach Zidane's moment of madness in his final game as a player - the 2006 World Cup final - when Italy's Buffon was an interested observer as the France legend threw his head. Back up options Nacho Fernandez and Jesus Vallejo are both injured, and it is therefore expected that Casemiro will partner Raphaël Varane in a backline that can expect to be truly tested by their Torinese visitors. They come into Wednesday's match off a 1-1 draw in the Madrid Derby against Atletico on Sunday that ended a six-match winning streak.

When the aggregate hit 3-3 with half an hour still to play, the Andalusian's joke after last week's game in Turin about getting his suspension out of the way before the semis did not seem so amusing. Barcelonahave reached the semi finals 15 times and are en route to reaching their 16th passage, after the 4-1 against Roma in the first leg.Curiously, Milan, the club with seven European titles, the club nearest to Madrid's 12 conquests, only needed 12 semi finals.

However, Mehdi Benatia's clumsy challenge on Lucas Vazquez conceded a penalty three minutes into injury time.

Isco was presented with a good chance to restore parity on 34 minutes after breaking through the defence, but he was unable to beat Buffon one-on-one.
