Real Madrid v Juventus - story of the match

Inside the second minute of the game, Douglas Costa drove towards the Real Madrid defence before Sami Khedira clipped a delightful ball in towards the far post, where an unmarked Mandzukic was waiting to head the ball beyond Keylor Navas.

Real Madrid's forward Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates after scoring a penalty Wednesday against Juventus.

The Italian giant came agonizingly close to overturning Real Madrid's three-goal first leg lead in the Spanish capital, but instead went down to a late penalty. Benatia booked and furious Juve players surround the referee, incensed at the decision.

Former Arsenal 'keeper Wojciech Szczęsny came off the bench to face Ronaldo from the penalty spot, but unsurprisingly, the Madrid man produced the flawless penalty, firing high into the net to put his side into the last four of the competition.

After suffering a 3-0 loss in last week's opener in Turin, the Serie A champions had to score four goals in order to move on to the next round - and they had to do it at the Santiago Bernabeu, of all places, against an in-form Ronaldo.

The Italian veteran, who is set to leave Juventus at the end of the season, was given a standing ovation from the home fans as he walked off the pitch in what is likely to be his last act in a long and eventful career in the Champions League.

Real Madrid are through to the Champions League semi-finals after a stunning clash with Juventus at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid v Juventus - story of the match

"I had to make changes, as I wasn't happy with the way we were playing". Cristiano Ronaldo finished it and Real advanced, 4-3 on aggregate, just when the match appeared headed for extra time.

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of this evening's Champions League fixtures!

And with his 29th birthday looming on the horizon this summer, should one of England's big guns fork out the mammoth fee it would take to prise him away?

That save proved to be crucial as three minutes later Mandzukic scored with another back post header, this time from Lichtsteiner's cross from the right.

The game looked to be heading for extra time before a chaotic final few minutes saw even the calmest of players lose control.

Buffon showed great reactions as he palmed an Isco shot which took a wicked deflection off Mehdi Benatia, then Varane flashed an effort just wide from the penalty area.

Ronaldo, from a similar position from where Mandzukic score his second, failed to find the target with five minutes remaining in normal time.
