Ronaldo: Juve have no reason to protest

UEFA Champions League - Real Madrid-Juventus - Ronaldo edges Real Madrid past Juventus The big winners and losers as Real fend off Juve comeback to reach Champions League semis

Cristiano Ronaldo's 97th-minute penalty sent Real Madrid to the Champions League last four in memorable fashion, going through 4-3 on aggregate against Juventus after a dramatic 3-1 loss on the night.

Zinedine Zidane's men were poised for the semi-finals following last week's 3-0 win in Turin, only for Juve to mount a remarkable comeback in the return leg as they levelled the tie thanks to Mario Mandzukic's double and Keylor Navas' fumbled cross midweek.

Cape Town - Cristiano Ronaldo showed an fantastic ability to handle the biggest of occasions when he stepped up to coolly score a stoppage-time penalty for Real Madrid against Juventus.

Real Madrid have suffered a number of nervy Champions League moments in recent seasons and could draw on a vast bank of European experience, as they survived a heart-stopping quarter-final second leg against Juventus on Wednesday. Lucas is right in front of the goal and if Benatia doesn't bring him down, he scores.

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. 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.

Juventus was attacking relentlessly and the tie was heading towards extra time when the entire flow of the game changed and the Bernabeu side was given a penalty upon Mehdi Benatia's challenge on Lucas Vázquez.

"We didn't play well, but we will learn our lesson and this will help us improve".

The 34-year-old defender could face a UEFA charge after appearing to make a bribery hand gesture at Real centre-back Raphael Varane in the midst of the penalty incident too. The referee blew the whistle and you can't change that. "It's going to be hard, but we're going there to win and they are going to make the most of it".
