-- Cristiano Ronaldo after he converted a penalty kick in the eighth minute of stoppage time -- giving him goals in his last 11 UEFA Champions League games -- to give Real Madrid a 4-3 aggregate win (3-1 loss on the night) over Juventus in their quarterfinal series. The controversial penalty kick was awarded for Mehdi Benatia's shove on Lucas Vazquez in a wild scramble in the area seconds before stoppage time. (BBC Sport)
