Zinedine Zidane Claims Real Madrid Deserved to Progress Despite Spirited Juventus Comeback

Real, 3-0 up from the first leg in Turin, found themselves down to two Mario Mandzukic headers in the first-half and conceded a third when Blaise Matuidi netted after the break following a fumble by keeper Keylor Navas.

After being on the back foot for the majority of the game, the home side were awarded a controversial penalty in the second minute of injury time at the end of the game for a foul on Lucas Vazquez by Medhi Benatia.

Gianluigi Buffon was infuriated by referee Michael Oliver's decision to award Madrid a penalty in the 93rd minute and was sent off for his aggressive reaction but Marcelo insisted there was no doubt over the spot-kick.

Juventus was attacking relentlessly and the tie was heading towards extra time when the entire flow of the game changed and the Bernabeu side was given a penalty upon Mehdi Benatia's challenge on Lucas Vázquez.

"I don't understand why they are protesting", he said to reporters after the game.

"We suffered and this will help us to learn".

Yet again he stepped up for his club, Real Madrid, while Gianluigi Buffon, at the tail end of 17 seasons of loyal service to Juventus, let his down with a tantrum rightly punished with a red card.

That means the Spanish global has only given the ball away twice in the month of April, which is absolutely ridiculous when you think about it.

The Bavarian powerhouse, which clinched its sixth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday, progressed to the final four of Europe's premier competition thanks to its 2-1 win in the first leg in Spain.

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane also had little sympathy for the Italians.

Zidane was asked about his thoughts on the penalty incident, to which he responded, "It was a penalty, they've told me it was a penalty".

Real Madrid head to Malaga this weekend still on a high following their dramatic aggregate win against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

"But we are happy and we are in the semi-finals".

"Since I've been here there's always been a bad performance in this competition and I always believed we would come through", Carvajal said. "That said, over the course of the two legs, I think both teams deserved to go through".
