UEFA CL: Late Ronaldo Penalty Puts Madrid into Semifinals

0

Cristiano Ronaldo converted an injury-time penalty to prevent Juventus from pulling off another stunning comeback in the quarterfinals of the Champions League as Read Madrid advanced despite a 3-1 home loss on Wednesday.

The goal was enough to clinch a 4-3 aggregate win for Madrid, the two-time defending champion.

A day after seeing Spanish rival Barcelona blow a three-goal advantage against Roma in Italy, Madrid nearly did the same. But Juventus’ heroics came up just short after substitute Lucas Vazquez was pushed from behind inside the area deep into stoppage time.
