Ronaldo can not understand Juventus penalty protests

Nothing is handed to you in football, you have to fight until the end.

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.

In a scintillating first half, Mario Mandzukic had scored with two far-post headers from right-wing crosses as Juventus looked to become the second Italian side in consecutive nights to overturn a three-goal deficit, following Roma's dramatic comeback against Barcelona.

The confrontationsaw Chiellini claiming that Madrid's players had bought the referee (as he already had said on the pitch) and other members of the team confronting the match officials and members of the Spanish side.

The goals cancelled out Real's resounding 3-0 win in Turin a week earlier but Lucas Vazquez won a disputed injury-time penalty.

"Lucas was pushed from behind and if the penalty was given, it's a goal".

Ronaldo has scored 21 goals in his last 11 matches in all competitions, and has netted in 11 straight Champions League matches.

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.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo was the hero for the home side, converting a controversial 97th-minute penalty.

NAIJ.com previously reported that The semi finals draws for the UEFA Champions League have been concluded and back to back defending champions Real Madrid will face Bayern Munich while Liverpool will trade tackles AS Roma.

Spanish website Diario Gol reports that Barcelona players feel Oliver made the right decision, though sympathise with Juventus.

It can happen. We didn't play well.
