Last-gasp Ronaldo goal sees Real Madrid through

Then during Wednesday night's Champions League drama against Juventus at the Bernabeu, he showed a huge amount of composure in possession for large parts, and although he gave it away twice during promising counter attacks, Isco impressed for the majority.

"It was a match in which we suffered", Ronaldo said.

With the game in the 97th minute, Ronaldo made no mistake from 12 yards, ensuring a 3-1 defeat on the night but a 4-3 win on aggregate.

The injury time penalty ensured the tie ended with fitting drama, Ronaldo beating substitute keeper Szczesny from the spot after Buffon was sent off when his protests at the spot-kick became too heated for referee Oliver.

"Semi-finals? Anything can happen in football".

Madrid won the first leg 3-0 in Turin last week, when Ronaldo scored with a spectacular bicycle kick for his second goal of the match.

Medcalf said a Chinese military base on Vanuatu would pose significant problems for Australian interests. It is China's first overseas naval base, but Beijing describes it as a logistics facility.

Hanging in the air at the back post, Ronaldo nodded down to Vazquez who looked certain to score from five yards before Medhi Benatia desperately challenged him from behind. Juventus players stormed toward English referee Michael Oliver, who apparently had help from his behind-the-goal assistant to make the call.

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. Wright suggested that Real Madrid are now the only team left in the competition that pose a real threat to the Merseyside club. Last season real Madrid beat German team in the quarterfinals, after which Bayern have expressed dissatisfaction with the work of judge Victor Cassano. 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.

Juventus took advantage of Madrid's depleted defense, which was without suspended captain Sergio Ramos and had 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo playing alongside Raphael Varane.

However, the fact that Ramos was able to converse with the Juve dugout is the crux of the matter here. Keylor Navas failed to collect a cross into the box and Matuidi was in the right place at the right time to poke the ball home for an improbable equaliser.

On the flip side, believe it or not, Real Madrid does have a fanbase.
