Real Madrid weren't going to bow out like Barcelona, says Marcelo

Gareth Bale

Cristiano Ronaldo converted the 97th-minute penalty kick to seal Real Madrid's berth into the semifinals of the tournament, 4-3 on aggregate, despite losing the match to the Italian champions, 3-1.

Zidane had handed Gareth Bale his first Champions League start since September but this was far from a night of redemption for the Welshman.

But the Serie A leaders got off to a flawless start when Mario Mandzukic headed in from Sami Khedira's cross after just two minutes and Mandzukic got a second before half-time.

Zinedine Zidane's side will now be in the draw for the semi-finals on Friday, where they could meet Liverpool, Bayern Munich or AS Roma, who knocked out Barcelona last night in a similar fashion to what Max Allegri would have hoped for.

Vazquez was happy to go down, Oliver pointed to the spot and Madrid are into the semi-finals and will now be favorites to win the competition for a third consecutive season.

REFEREE: Michael Oliver (ENG) Booked: Pjanic (min. 17), Carvajal (min. 22), Mandzukic (min. 29), Lichtsteiner (min. 36), Sandro (min. 67), Costa (min. 73), Marcelo (min. 81), Benatia (min. 90), Ronaldo (min. 98).

Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd. The referee blew the whistle and you can't change that.

"We're not crying about what happened, and we go to Madrid with the desire to play a good game".

Twelve-time European champions Real are now in the last four for the eighth season in a row. He would promptly be sent off, bringing to an anti-climax a most dramatic encounter.

"We had some hard moments, especially with scoring goals". The Italy global was shown a straight red card for his protests, and Wojciech Szczesny's first task was to take the ball out the back of the net after being beaten by Ronaldo.

Buffon had announced in October that this would be his last Champions League campaign unless his side won the final, after which he had meant to play in the Club World Cup. Substitute Marco Asensio curled a free-kick just over the bar on 69 minutes, before Buffon scrambled across his line to keep out Ronaldo deflected strike in the 74th minute.

But he will not receive the dream send-off, missing out on claiming the only major trophy which has evaded him in his career. He became the only player in Champions League history to score in eleven successive Champions League games.

Mario Mandzukic set Juve on their way with a goal after 76 seconds - the fastest Real have ever conceded in this competition - and then scored again before halftime with another header at the back post.
