MADRID: Real Madrid sent Juventus packing from the UEFA Champions League quarter final after holding a splendid Juventus comeback.
Juventus almost shocked the fully packed Santiago Bernabeu crowed following a strong come back from the Italian club. Mandukic gave the Old Lady an early goal before he doubled his brace in the first half, before Matuidi scored a third goal in the second stanza to make it 3-0 for Juve and 3-3 on goal aggregate.
Late drama was unfolded, as the Juve goalkeeper Gainluigi Buffon went nuts at Michael Oliver’s penalty awarding decision and unlucky he was quickly handed his marching orders for an abusive language.
As usual Cristiano Ronaldo took full responsibility for the Los Bloncos as he scored from the spot kick to take Madrid to the last four of UCL spot, following a 4-3 goal aggregate after 90 minutes.
