PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! END OF IT. END OF THE DRAMA. IT'S JUST HOW IT IS, EH? MICHAEL OLIVIER WITH THE RIGHT DECISION. BUT CRISTIANO RONALDO DELIVERED WITH THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON HIS SHOULDERS! THIS MAN, I MEAN, WHO THE HELL COULD REAL HAVE TURNED TO TO BURY THAT ONE? WHO COULD ANYONE HAVE TURNED TO IN THE LAST MINUTE OF THE GAME TO SALVAGE A GOAL THAT WILL SEE THEM THROUGH TO THE SEMI-FINALS?

CRISTIANO FREAKING RONALDO.

WOOF WOOF WOOF. 

"FOOTBALL, BLOODY HELL."

I NEED TO WALK THIS ONE OFF, LADS. OFF HERE. HOPE YOU DIDN'T MISS THIS ONE.

CIAO.
...
YOU JUST DO NOT SAVE THAT. RONNIE BOY HAS LEATHERED IT INTO THE TOP CORNER. THIS IS UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. THIS IS CRISTIANO RONALDO. THIS IS REAL MADRID. PUT IN THE SPOT. DO IT OR GO DIE. AND HE HAS THUMPED IT TO THE NET. WHO ELSE, EH? WHO ELSE COULD POSSIBLY DO JUSTICE TO THE SCENARIO?! CRISTIANO RONALDO. THE ONE AND ONLY.
...
RONALDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EMPHAATIC! EMPHATIC! 
...
I haven't seen anything quite like this. Juventus executed their plan to perfection for the entirety of the game save the last 30 seconds.
And the stage is set for none other than Cristiano Ronaldo to seal it for Real Madrid here.
...
Still drama. Ronnie boy is yet to take the kick.
...
94' Cristiano Ronaldo is on it! PRESSURE.
...
93' OH MY GOD! PENALTY FOR REAL MADRID! OH MY LORDY LORD!

Last minute of stoppage time. Marcelo down the left flank finds Asensio who plays it in for Kroos! Kroos dinks it in for Ronaldo and Vazquez looks all set to tap it in and Benatia gets rightly penalized. And BUFFON HAS ABSOLUTELY LOST IT! BUFFON GETS A RED CARD. WHAT IS THIS MADNESS?!
...
91' 3 minutes added on.
...
90' Yellow card for Benatia as he runs into both Asensio and Lucas Vazquez subsequently near the centre circle.
...
89' Some good defending from Benatia takes Asensio away from goal as the Spaniard tries to work some space to get a shot out.
...
88' Isco tries to play a lovely dinked ball into the box but Chiellini heads it out for a throw-in.
...
88' Carvajal tidies up at the back for Real Madrid after Matuidi's ball threatened to play Mandzukic clear.
...
87' Can Real Madrid strike back or are we headed for extra time?!
...
85' A teasing cross from Carvajal from the right flank and Ronaldo was waiting at the far post and he couldn't wrap his head around it and he skies it. That was beautifully set up for him!
...
84' It's Miralem Pjanic territory but they take it short and make a mess of it. Sigh, come on, Juve. Gotta do better than that. Navas collects it and sets a Real Madrid counter in motion.
...
83' Vallejo brings down Higuain 30 yards outside Navas' goal and Juve have a freekick.
...
82' Real Madrid finding it hard to battle out from the back now. Marcelo tries to lob the ball into Isco's path but it, unfortunately, goes out of play near the centre of the park.
...
80' What a killer last 10 minutes this is going to be!
...
79' Madness, madness here. Raphael Varane almost gets there to head it home but for Chiellini who flicks it away from the danger area to thwart yet another dangerous looking Real Madrid attack.
...
79' OH OH! CHIELLINI JUST ABOUT DEFLECTS A CROSS OVER THE CROSSBAR.
...
78' OH VARANE! SO SO CLOSE!
Real Madrid recycle possession after the corner goes kaput and they work it to good effect as Varane goes for goal from inside the box with his back against the goal. His shot is just wide of the mark. He had the beating of Buffon there though.
...
77' OH ISCO! 
Isco forces a brilliant, brilliant save out of Buffon after Marcelo dragged it back for him from the left side. They win a corner but it's nothing spectacular.
...
75' Khedira couldn't take the shot! Mario Mandzukic with a delightful dinked ball into the box and Khedira tries to sidefoot it past Navas with his right but Jesus Vallejo steps in with a timely challenge to turn it out for a corner. But Juventus don't work the corner well and Real Madrid are back in possession.
...
75' Substitution for Real Madrid.

Modric off. Kovacic on.
...
74' Real Madrid take their sweet time to create space in their final third but Ronaldo goes the selfish route and tries to go for goal from an unlikely angle but Juve block it for a corner. Nothing comes from the corner.
