Ghanaians elated about Juventus knock out by Madrid

Gareth Bale's time at Real Madrid could be over after horror show in first-half against Juventus

Gareth Bale's time at Real Madrid could be over after horror show in first-half against Juventus

Having overturned a 3-0 first-leg deficit at Real's Bernabeu stadium on Wednesday, Juve were cruelly knocked out by a soft penalty converted by Cristiano Ronaldo in stoppage time of the quarter-final second leg.

While Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for his protests, many other players clashed on the field before Ronaldo ran up to take the spot-kick at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Buffon was shown a straight red for his protests, and they continued for another four minutes before Ronaldo struck into the top corner past Szczesny to win it for the hosts.

We saw 90 minutes of an fantastic game with such a courageous effort from Juventus coming back from 3 goals down away from home and leveling it in Madrid. "Lucas was tackled from behind and if they don't give him the penalty, it's a goal". They will face one of Liverpool, Bayern Munich or Roma in the semi-finals and will be hopeful of a much more straightforward progression into the final of the competition.

Midfielder Luka Modric has also been omitted from Zinedine Zidane's 19-man group for the trip to La Rosaleda.

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.

It was the right call, although when Medhi Benatia made contact with Lucas Vazquez on the edge of the six-yard area it was the sort of challenge that on another night with another ref might have gone unpunished.

Real Madrid regrouped and began to get chances, but 40-year-old keeper Gianluigi Buffon stopped efforts by Isco Alarcon - twice - and Gareth Bale.

The match looked destined for extra time until the referee's penalty decision. "The ref awarded it and we can't change that, but I think it was a penalty", Zidane said.

The Serie A giants had fought their way back from a 3-0 deficit to pull level, but with extra-time looming Cristiano Ronaldo managed to clinch a insane win via the penalty spot.

Only four days earlier, Juventus had benefitted from two penalties - the second after Juve forward Gonzalo Higuain's legs crumpled without any apparent contact from his marker - to win 4-2 at Benevento in Serie A.
