Ronaldo backs referee over controversial spot-kick

16 April 2018

Real have endured a poor season so far in La Liga, sitting fourth in the table and 15 points adrift of runaway leaders Barca, who capitulated on Tuesday night to go out of the Champions League.

A win for Madrid will lift them above Valencia into third in the table, while Malaga realistically need a win to have any chance of avoiding relegation. The crowd got nervous when Mario Mandzukic added his second goal before halftime, and the unlikely comeback was almost complete when Blaise Matuidi scored the third about 15 minutes into the second half.

And he continued to sound off on Oliver in the mixed zone: "If a referee doesn't have the character to walk on this pitch, you should sit in the stands and eat crisps".

Former Arsenal and England striker Ian Wright believes Real Madrid are the only team left in the Champions League that are a real threat to Liverpool, but still believes Jurgen Klopp's side can be crowned European champions. It was his header that Lucas was about to control when Benatia was adjudged to have fouled the Madrid man six yards from goal.

BJP treating Kathua, Unnao cases in religious, community perspective: Congress
Rahul Gandhi, the chief of the main opposition Congress party, led a candlelight march in Delhi on Thursday night. She said that women and children have no religion and that no politics should be done over such issues.

Then it was Real Madrid's turn to attack, as Gareth Bale came close to answering with what would have been an incredible backheel goal.

The 34-year-old defender could face a UEFA charge after appearing to make a bribery hand gesture at Real centre-back Raphael Varane in the midst of the penalty incident too. The entire Juventus squad argued with the referee, feeling let down by a dubious decision.

It was the first time in 22 home Champions League matches that Bayern had failed to score, while Sevilla's misery was compounded in stoppage when Correa was sent off.

"There was no VAR tonight".

If that isn't a tough road to the final we're not really sure what is.

The Spaniard was involved in a verbal exchange with Allegri near the final whistle after Ronaldo tucked his penalty away. "Juve played well, but we believed to the end and over the two legs deserved to go through".

"There are people that are anti-Madrid and we can't change that", added Zidane.

Having been beaten by the same scoreline at home in the first leg, they looked set to take the tie to extra-time despite being completely written off.

Giroud leads Chelsea to overcome Southampton 3-2
The abiding sense is of a club, once the envy of many in the Premier League, coming to the end of its cycle in the top flight. The turnaround was complete with 12 minutes left when Giroud reacted quickest to loose ball to volley into the bottom corner.

"I'm not going to say anything to him, I'm not interested in what Guardiola says", the Frenchman said.
