Real Madrid vs Juventus drama sees furious reporters ejected from press box

Real Madrid vs Juventus drama sees furious reporters ejected from press box

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 10 Champions League goals against Juventus - the most by one player against a one opponent in the competition.

Mario Mandzukic headed home twice in the first half before Blaise Matuidi capitalised on an error from Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas to keep the Italians' dream alive.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane concurred with the call made by English referee Michael Oliver on Mehdi Benatia's foul in the box against Lucas Vazquez, despite admitting he did not see the play unfold as it happened.

Englishman Oliver's decision to give the spot-kick - and send off Gigi Buffon for his reaction - apparently sent some of the hacks into meltdown at Santiago Bernabeu.

Juventus' Gianluigi Buffon takes a drink during the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid in Madrid April 11, 2018.

Madrid will face Liverpool, Roma or Bayern Munich in the semi-finals, as the La Liga giants go for a third consecutive Champions League title.

The newly-crowned German champions, who had won their previous two home matches at Allianz Arena 6-0, came under the cosh as Joaquin Correa hit the crossbar with a header and Pablo Sarabia squandered a glorious chance for the visitors.

The four teams will learn their semi-final fate when the draw takes place in Nyon at noon tomorrow.

"In football nothing is given away, we have to fight until the end".

Ronaldo's knockdown looked to have set Vazquez up to score before the touch from Benatia sent the substitute to the ground.

He also became just the third player to reach 150 appearances in the Champions League, following former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas (167) and former Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez (151).

"We have changed a little more the dynamics, with Lucas and Marco giving us a little more energy".

But with their persistence and control, Madrid ever looked more likely to score the victor even as Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain were always a danger, especially on the break. "Well. I'm happy. Over the full 180 minutes of both legs I think we deserved to go through". He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd.

Isco drove towards the bottom corner but Buffon's hand was there and the game looked to be drifting towards extra-time until the 93rd minute.

"I didn't expect to concede in the first couple of minutes".

"They played a great game, with a very good plan from their coach", Zidane said. "By conceding the goal after a minute, you drop your head and give them life".
