James Rodriguez reveals he still texts three Real Madrid players

James Rodriguez reveals he still texts three Real Madrid players

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.

Juventus almost took the tie into extra time but a late penalty deep in stoppage time awarded by referee Michael Oliver for a foul by Mehdi Benatia on Lucas Vazquez ended their hopes of a comeback.

Just when it looked like Juventus would pull off another stunning Champions League comeback, Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up once again.

Ronaldo is now trying to lead another prolonged period of European success, with Real gunning for its third consecutive Champions League triumph, and fourth in five years. In the 2014 Champions League final, Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso had been in the stands but had entered the field of play.

"Madrid could've scored more goals, but Juve and Buffon were good".

"I'm happy, we deserved to go through after 180 minutes", the Coach told BeIN Sports.

Buffon, who has racked up 125 Champions League appearances but never won the competition, could not contain his frustration as Ronaldo's goal made the aggregate score 4-3.

"Lucas was pushed from behind and if the penalty was given, it's a goal. It will not take away everything he has done, even if it's a shame to end his Champions League career this way". 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.

You get the impression Szczesny could have set off a firework in the Juventus goal and Ronaldo's concentration wouldn't have wavered in the slightest.

The second legs take place on Tuesday, May 1 as well as Wednesday, May 2.

Zinedine Zidane says he has no explanation for Real Madrid's sublime European form, suggesting only that LaLiga is a tougher competition to win.

"I'm proud of my team, they showed great personality and character against a very strong opponent, it wasn't easy", said Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella.

Previous year they suffered a 2-1 reverse at home to Bayern Munich before reaching the last four after extra-time.
