Champions League: Ronaldo sets record in 3-1 loss to Juventus

Madrid have been drawn to face Bayern Munich in the semi-final, with the first leg taking place at the Allianz Arena on April 25. We created chances and in terms of the penalty I don't know why they are arguing, because Benatia was behind Lucas.

"It's embarrassing when people talk about a robbery", AS report said Zidane as saying.

"We should face and we did everything possible to go through", the Brazil global full-back said. They played well but we were just average, the difference is we kept believing until the end.

"Games like these are great moments against the biggest clubs in the world. If you don't have personality, you better watch the game from the stands with your wife and your kids while eating chips".

They also claimed the referee "punished" them with a controversial penalty and the sending off of Buffon.

They say Ramos has learned Isco, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane will all have thoughts about which path to take following the conclusion of the season.

Uefa meted out a similar punishment to the suspended Xabi Alonso, a few years back, when he appeared on the team bench despite being banned from playing in the Champions League final, in Lisbon.

"It's normal for people to talk".

The game looked to be heading for extra time before a chaotic final few minutes saw even the calmest of players lose control.

But the bold move by the Frenchman paid off and the Spanish global won the winning penalty for Real Madrid in the final minutes of the game. It is what the referee has decided, we must accept it. "He scored the penalty and we got the win".

Real have endured a poor season so far in La Liga, sitting fourth in the table and 15 points adrift of runaway leaders Barca, who capitulated on Tuesday night to go out of the Champions League.

"In football, nothing is given away, you have to fight until the end".

"People are a bit obsessed [with Madrid], but we can do nothing about that".

"However, we have so much work to do in focusing on ourselves, that the rival takes more of a back seat". "That said, over the course of the two legs, I think both teams deserved to go through".

There have been calls for Buffon to apologise for his reaction, with Oliver's wife having received vitriolic messages on social media, but Zidane felt the veteran goalkeeper simply lost his cool.

"Life goes on", Buffon said.

"I am happy and we are in the semi-finals".
