  • Gareth Bale's time at Real Madrid could be over after horror show in first-half against Juventus

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.

Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, in what might be his last Champions League appearance, was sent off by English referee Michael Oliver after awarding the spot-kick, for foul and abusive language.

The Bianconeri made a stunning recovery from their 3-0 deficit in Turin, but unfortunately they could not oust their European champions, who celebrated a 4-3 aggregate win via a last-gasp Cristiano Ronaldo penalty.

Real were missing influential captain Sergio Ramos through suspension and Mandzukic headed Juventus in front when the game was only 76 seconds old, meeting a sumptuous cross from former Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira.

It drew parallels with Real boss Zinedine Zidane when his France playing career ended with a sending off at the 2006 World Cup final for a headbutt on Italy defender Marco Materazzi.

Leading 2-1 from the first leg in Seville, Bayern were in pole position at the start of the night with Sevilla needing to score at least twice to have any chance of progression.

I didn't say we're going to score, but I believe the first goal we scored put them in a bad position . Giroud and Pedro came on right after Chelsea went 2-0 down which was the start of Chelsea's comeback.

"We did badly, not so much in goal-scoring opportunities, but in just controlling the game".

Gareth Bale is still insistent Real Madrid remains the best place for him to be despite being upset at being taken off at half time during their Champions League quarterfinal clash with Juventus. Not about the penalty because that's down to interpretation, for me it is and the referee gave it, but the stuff about the robbery. The ref awarded it and we can't change that, but I think it was a penalty.

"We are in the semi-final now and I'd rather talk about the game".

"The pulse increased, but I calmed down, and I knew I'd be decisive", he continued. We kept the door shut at the back and played very well tonight - we did really well to turn it around.

"We could've scored five or six goals, so we ought to be proud".

In what can be touted as one of the most dramatic decider matches in the history of UEFA Champions League, Cristiano Ronaldo's injury-time penalty kick is in the eye of the storm.
