Furious Zidane hits out at Real Madrid 'jealousy'

Real Madrid 1 Juventus 4 (agg 4-3): Cristiano Ronaldo nets dramatic 97th minute penalty to send Los Blancos into Champions League semi-finals Real escape Champions League upset
| 16 April, 2018, 12:01

It was a night of drama at the Santiago Bernabeu, where Juve remarkably overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit to leave the quarter-final tie poised for extra time.

However, referee Michael Oliver then awarded a contentious spot-kick in added time after ruling Mehdi Benatia had bundled Lucas Vazquez over in the box.

Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for his protests against Oliver and was scathing of the official's performance after the match, although Juve great Alessandro Del Piero felt the penalty was the right call.

Real Madrid head to Malaga this weekend still on a high following their dramatic aggregate win against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

"I don't understand why they protested the penalty", Ronaldo said. "If they didn't make the foul, Lucas would score the goal".

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

For the first time since 1997, two teams playing each other on the last day of NBA's regular season had a chance to progress to the play-offs at the expense of the other.


The Los Blancos were struggling to book their place into the semi-finals of the Champions League after visitor's Juventus scored three goals in a space of sixty minutes to cancel out the three away goals they conceded in Turin. We were not good, and we have to admit that.

"I didn't see it, but I've been told it was a penalty".

"We started the game saying to each other that we had 0.000001 percent chance of qualifying but you never know in life, especially because we have a team with players with incredible characters who are capable of everything", he said.

Real, Champions League winners in three of the past four seasons, came into the second leg leading 3-0, helped by Ronaldo's stunning bicycle kick.

"It wasn't an issue of VAR, because the referee still needs to have courage and a conscience", said the 33-year-old.

"Pulses were racing, but I calmed myself down. We deserved to go through to the semi-finals over the course of the tie and we can be pleased with that". "It's going to be hard, but we're going there to win and they are going to make the most of it".
