Champions League: Ronaldo shatters Juventus comeback to send Real through

Keylor Navas Real Madrid stay

Another headed goal by Mandzukic after 37 minutes really had Los Merengues on the ropes, the Croatian only the second Bianconeri player to score a brace versus Madrid, the other being club legend Alessandro Del Piero in 2008.

Maybe the only thing that made another climactic finish in a Champions League quarterfinal believable was the familiar scene of megastar Cristiano Ronaldo standing over the ball before again playing the hero - and again ripping his shirt off after another result-defining goal. Real looked a shadow of the side that dominated Juventus in the first leg, and the Italians came out for the second half needing just one goal to send the game to extra time.

But with their persistence and control, Madrid ever looked more likely to score the victor even as Mandzukic and Gonzalo Higuain were always a danger, especially on the break.

Once order had been restored, Ronaldo kept his composure to rifle the 97th-minute spot-kick beyond replacement stopper Wojciech Szczesny to send Real, Champions League winners in three out of the last four years, to the semi-finals.

Veteran Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, in what was likely his last Champions League game, was then sent off for furiously complaining after the penalty decision.

Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card.

Juve and particularly captain Gigi Buffon were absolutely furious at the penalty decision.

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.

Isco drove towards the bottom corner but Buffon's hand was there and the game looked to be drifting towards extra-time until the 93rd minute.

That verdict was thrown out by the judge , who didn't approve of VirnetX lawyers' references to the 2012 trial. The company's stock rose 44 percent today on news of the federal ruling in its favor, Bloomberg says.

"I don't understand why they protested the penalty", Ronaldo said. It was the first time Madrid was down 3-0 in the Champions League since losing 4-0 at Liverpool in the round of 16 in 2008-09.

The second half began with both teams creating chances, with Madrid looking to bring the game to Juventus rather than sit back and defend their slender lead.

Sami Khedira hung a deep cross to the back post where Mandzukic powered a header past Navas. Stephan Lichtsteiner made the cross from the right side and Mandzukic beat Dani Carvajal to the ball.

If it was not for the heroics of the goalkeeper, the La Liga giants could have been behind by more in the first 45 minutes, when he stopped former striker Gonzalo Higuain from finding the net. "By conceding the goal after a minute, you drop your head and give them life".
