Watch How Referee Michael Oilver Awarded A Late Penalty To Real Madrid

Real Madrid were awarded a late penalty that decided the fate of the Real-Juve tie after the teams were locked 3-3 on aggregate with seconds left till stoppage time.

Juventus' defender Medhi Benatia appeared to have touched ball as Lucas Vazquez was brought down inside the box and the referee pointed to the spot.

Oliver hesitated before pointing to the spot, and then came a mass protest by the Juventus players, which led to veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon receiving a straight red card.

"Sevilla are a good team - for a long time we couldn't get a grip on the midfield, but we stopped them scoring - that was important", said Bayern winger Arjen Robben. Ronaldo exhaled and slammed it into the top right-hand corner to take Real into the semi-finals. "It's a shame it ends like this".

It seemed impossible for Juventus to overturn a three-goal first leg deficit in Turin but the story changed as the Old lady had other ideas. Max Allegri's side made the ideal start, as veteran striker Mario Mandzukic found space at the far post to head home a cross from Sami Khedira after just two minutes. Unbelievably the Turin giants score a third to level the tie on the hour mark, as midfielder Blaise Matuidi capitalised on a awful error by home goalkeeper Keylor Navas to score from close-range. If they didn't provoke the penalty, it would've been a goal. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd.

In the 2014 Champions League final, Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso had been in the stands but had entered the field of play. Juventus players stormed toward English referee Michael Oliver, who apparently had help from his behind-the-goal assistant to make the call.

For Real Madrid, it was more about survival than brilliance this time. Juve beat us and made things very hard for us with their tactics but our willingness to keep trying to get back in the game eventually gave us our goal.

Real Madrid will find out their Champions League semi-final opponents in the draw on Friday.

That save proved to be crucial as three minutes later Mandzukic scored with another back post header, this time from Lichtsteiner's cross from the right.

However, the fact that Ramos was able to converse with the Juve dugout is the crux of the matter here.

Real Madrid's captain Sergio Ramos is in the midst of a potentially detrimental battle with the UEFA league.
