FT: What a football game. Every single Juventus player got extremely mad at the referee for that call even though it seemed to be the right one while watching it on replay. Tough call to make but the right one.

90th minute: RONALDO SCORES THE DECISIVE GOAL OFF A PK AND EARNS THE TICKET TO THE SEMIFINALS. Buffon was sent off after the call as he complained to the referee. Madrid are through after a big scare.

60th minute: Disaster. Keylor Navas let one cross go and Matuidi just gave Juve a 0-3 lead. All the work done in Turin was for nothing.

46th minute: Lucas Vázquez and Marco Asensio have replaced Casemiro and Gareth Bale.

HT: Real Madrid are in serious trouble as they just can’t control the tempo of the game and make Juventus actually care about defending. Varane hit the crossbar off a set piece on the very last play of the half but other than that Zidane’s men are harmless.

37th minute: Carvajal can't defend Mandzukic and the Croatian striker is taking advantage of it as he scores Juventus' second goal with yet another header.

1st minute: Real Madrid under heavy pressure as Mandzukic has given Juve a 0-1 lead after just one minute. They need two more goals to send the game to ET assuming Madrid don't score.

Real Madrid published their starting lineup for the upcoming match against Juventus in the return leg of the 2018 Champions League Quarterfinals —20:45 CET—.

Real Madrid starting XI: Navas Carvajal, Varane, Vallejo, Marcelo, Casemiro, Modric, Kroos, Ronaldo, Bale, Isco

Juventus starting XI: Buffon; De Sciglio, Benatia, Chiellini, Alex Sandro; Khedira, Pjanic, Matuidi; D. Costa, Higuain, Mandzukic

Los Blancos must take advantage of their 0-3 lead and find a way to secure their presence in the Semifinals. If they do so, they will be just three games away from their third straight Champions League title, salvaging what has been a mediocre campaign in the Spanish competitions.
