Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos could be banned for Champions League semi-final

English referee Michael Oliver was at the centre of one of the biggest moments in recent Champions League history as he awarded Real Madrid a last-gasp penalty to help secure their passage to the semi-finals.

Coach Zinedine Zidane, Cristiano Ronaldo and several other players of Real Madrid have commented on the Juventus match, saying their team deserved to go through to the semi-finals.

"We said it, and we showed it on the pitch".

"We could've scored five or six goals, so we ought to be proud".

But just when it looked like the match was going to extra time, the referee called for a foul on Lucas Vazquez inside the area in the third and final minute of stoppage time.

Allegri legitimately asked, post-match, why Ramos was present on the Real bench and noted that Juan Cuadrado, his own player, had been strictly warned by Uefa to stay away when he was suspended earlier this season.

As Buffon stormed off, incandescent with rage at having been sent off for the first time in 117 European ties, on came former Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny for surely the most surreal minute of his life. You need to fight to the end.

Losing 3-0 from the first leg, Juventus tore Los Blancos apart yesterday with Mario Mandzukic's brace and Blaise Matuidi's striker silencing the Bernabeu.

Daily AS declared on its front page that Madrid went "from panic to the semi-finals". But the last conversations I had with him, he was happy there. My heart was speeding up, but I calmed myself because I knew it was decisive.

Meanwhile, in the Spanish press, a different approach was taken, as Marca made it clear it thought the right decision was made.

The Portuguese scored his side's only goal in their 3-1 home defeat to the Serie A giants, converting a 97th minute penalty to prevent the tie from going to extra-time.

"We didn't think the game would happen like that, at 0-3". Juve beat us and made things very hard for us with their tactics but our willingness to keep trying to get back in the game eventually gave us our goal. An enraged Juventus legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon protested the decision of the referee, earning a red card. "I've not seen the penalty incident again but for me it was a penalty".
