Thanks to the heroics of Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid are moving on to the semi-finals of the Champions League for the eighth year in a row. Even though it looked like they would not be. Juventus attacked relentlessly, taking Real to the end with a 3-0 lead, until, with less than a minute remaining, Vázquez went down in the area. The referee, Michael Oliver, pointed to the penalty spot. As Juventus’s players surrounded him, Gigi Buffon was sent off, his last European game ending with him walking from the field.
