Lucas Vazquez was brought down in stoppage time by Medhi Benatia, with English referee Michael Oliver pointing to the spot for Cristiano Ronaldo to convert for a 4-3 aggregate victory in the Champions League quarter-final.

If that remains the case, the lasting image of Buffon's final Champions League match will be his reaction to Michael Oliver's late decision to award Madrid a penalty, earning him a straight red card.

The game was heading to extra time - as the three-minute added time was nearly up - when Mehdi Benatia brought down Lucas Vazquez in the box, and Cristiano Ronaldo converted the penalty to send Real to the semifinals.

"We can say that to injury time incidents, the one here and the one in Turin [a penalty not given on Juan Cuadrado], decided the qualification".

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, he said: "The referee lost the plot, I accept that".

Real had plenty of chances in the first half but Buffon made three strong saves to thwart Gareth Bale, Ronaldo and Isco, who was also denied a goal by the offside flag. Giving a penalty like that after a memorable match, sending off someone who has never been red-carded for dissent in his life in my final game, is simply not acceptable. "I know the referee saw, it was certainly a dubious incident".

"You can not ruin the dreams of a team. You can't destroy dreams like that".

"I don't understand why they are protesting", he said. If a referee doesn't have the character to walk on this pitch, you should sit in the stands and eat crisps.

"If you don't have the personality, stay in the stands eating potato chips with your wife and don't take on a feat like this", Buffon added. "I think he exaggerated the part about a crime against the humanity of sports being committed, but it should be understood that it was his last game in the Champions League and he expected to win it". We must remember that we beat Real Madrid 3-0 on their own turf and only a insane person would've believed that going in. "Above all, for great matches at European level, we need big players, coaches, supporters and referees".
