However, there was late drama in the second leg of the tie as Madrid were awarded a penalty and Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to finally ensure that his side goes through to the last four after Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon got sent off by referee Michael Oliver.

Serie A leaders Juve staged a stunning fightback in the Spanish capital after losing the first leg 3-0, levelling the tie with two goals from Mario Mandzukic and a tap in by Blaise Matuidi.

Oliver pointed to the spot after judging Juve defender Medhi Benatia to have fouled Lucas Vazquez as the half-time substitute attempted to convert Ronaldo's imperious knockdown.

Juve goalkeeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon angrily protested the decision before he was sent off for the first time of his storied career in the Champions League.

Madrid beat Juventus 4-3 on aggregate, courtesy of a Cristiano Ronaldo victor from the penalty spot in the 97th minute.

The last two Champions League quarter-final second legs saw Real Madrid and Bayern Munich head into the last four of Europe's elite competition.

Zinedine Zidane has warned Real Madrid not to underestimate Malaga when his side take on La Liga's bottom club on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

Pep Guardiola: Sergio Aguero out for Man City's 'important' game vs
We handled the pressure between the good and bad moments for the entire season, not just in this period. We can only try to focus and win at Tottenham and then Swansea".

"The Champions League is unforgiving and you have to be focused for the entire match", Vazquez said.

"We should face and we did everything possible to go through", the Brazil worldwide full-back said.

Similar to what happened to Barcelona on Tuesday night, Madrid almost got eliminated from the tournament after conceding three goals at the Santiago Bernabeu but for the timely intervention of Portuguese forward who scored a penalty to push the team through.

The Coach made some surprising decisions, using 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo in defence for suspended Sergio Ramos and picking Gareth Bale rather than Karim Benzema. For the penalty, my heart was beating hard, but I tried to stay calm.

Ronaldo set another new record, becoming the first to score in 11 straight Champions League matches.

AS admitted the European champions went from "the panic to the semi-finals", while Marca simply believed: "It was a penalty".

It was a penalty, they've told me it was a penalty. The ref awarded it and we can't change that, but I think it was a penalty. "He scored the penalty and we got the win".
