Real Madrid survive Juventus scare to reach Champions League semi-final

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stoppage-time penalty against Juventus as holders Real Madrid advanced to the last four of the Champions League despite a 3-1 home defeat at the Bernabeu.

Bayern Munich meanwhile sealed their place with a goalless draw at home to Sevilla, who had Joaquin Correa shown a red card in stoppage time.

German champions Bayern went through on a 2-1 aggregate after their first-leg victory in Spain last week for their sixth semi-final in the last seven years.

Real, 3-0 up from the first leg in Turin, found themselves down to two Mario Mandzukic headers in the first half and conceded a third when Blaise Matuidi netted after the break following a fumble by keeper Keylor Navas.

However Real escaped extra-time and possibly one of the biggest upsets in Champions League history after a penalty was awarded when Mehdi Benatia fouled Lucas Vazquez in front of goal following Ronaldo’s headed knockdown in the third minute of stoppage time.

Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was then shown a red card by English referee Michael Oliver amid vehement Juve protests in a sad Champions League farewell for the veteran keeper, who was playing his 160th match in UEFA competitions.

Poland keeper Wojciech Szczesny came on but couldn’t stop Ronaldo’s powerful shot into the top corner of the net before the Portugal┬ásuperstar raced to the corner flag while tearing off his shirt.

It was a 15th Champions League goal this season for Ronaldo, playing his 150th CL game, and he has now scored in 11 consecutive games in the competition.

Twelve-time European champions Real are now in the last four for the eighth season in a row.
