Real Madrid nearly suffered the same fate as their rival Barcelona by allowing Juventus to gain a 3-0 lead in the 2nd leg of the Champions League Quarter-Finals. However, Spanish forward Lucas Vazquez drew a penalty during stoppage time as he attempted to play off a cross from Cristiano. The Real Madrid star, CR7, then sealed Juventus' fate with a bullet into the top corner.

I see myself as the best footballer in the world, if you dont believe you are the best, then you will never achieve all that you are capable of.

The victory was claimed after a chaotic series of events in the final minutes of stopping time. After Lucas Vazquez was ruled to have been taken down by defender Mehdi Benatia, Juventus' goalie exploded on referree Michael Oliver leaving his backup to fend off Cristiano. 

Real Madrid now advance to the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 4-3 aggregate victory even after today's 3-1 loss.
