Juventus Star Slams 'Unsurprising' Decision to Award Controversial Real Madrid Penalty

However, Oliver awarded Real a penalty after Lucas Vazquez was brought down in stoppage time by Medhi Benatia.

NAIJ.com previously reported that The semi finals draws for the UEFA Champions League have been concluded and back to back defending champions Real Madrid will face Bayern Munich while Liverpool will trade tackles AS Roma. Bruña initially wrote: "A penalty was what it was, as Benatia mowed down Lucas Vázquez in the last play of the game".

Mario Mandzukic's first-half brace stunned the Santiago Bernabeu before a terrible error from Keylor Navas saw Blaise Matuidi wipe out what remained of Madrid's commanding 3-0 first-leg advantage.

Buffon launched an astonishing broadside on referee Oliver while Giorgio Chiellini and Juventus president Andrea Agnelli both either hinted at or flatly accused the match officials of some kind of bias.

Juventus had hauled themselves back level in the tie in stunning fashion as they scored three goals at Santiago Bernabeu - strikes that appeared to be taking the tie to extra time due to a 3-3 aggregate score.

Zidane was asked about his thoughts on the penalty incident, to which he responded, "It was a penalty, they've told me it was a penalty".

Ronaldo has now scored in 11 straight Champions League matches, a run which stretches to last season's final in Cardiff against the Bianconeri. "Real Madrid are happy and in the semi-finals".

Juve stopper Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for his protestations before Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to smash the spot-kick past substitute goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Despite the drama which surrounds the referee decisions to award a late penalty, the 33-year-old appeared to nearly mentally vacate the area. I could nut somebody - who knows.

Juventus chief coach Massimiliano Allegri bemoaned the absence of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) which could have given the right decision. The ref awarded it and we can't change that, but I think it was a penalty.

"And a dubious incident at the 93rd minute when we had a clear penalty denied in the first leg, you can not award that at this point", he said.
