A controversial 92nd-minute penalty was all Real Madrid needed to advance to the semi finals of the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Zinedine Zidane’s side had fallen 3-0 behind to a spirited Max Allegri-tutored side, drawing the game on aggregate until referee Michael Oliver awarded a penalty against Juventus for a foul on Lucas Vasquez.

The English referee also immediately showed a red card to Juventus captain Gianluigi Buffon for what appeared to be dissent.

Two first-half goals from Mario Mandzukic and a second-half Blaise Matuidi strike brought Juventus back from a 3-0 first leg defeat until the penalty, which was converted by Cristiano Ronaldo, settled the tie.
