Juve shouldn't be surprised by 'laughable' penalty - Chiellini

15 April 2018

Tempers flared during Real Madrid and Juventus' UEFA Champions League clash following Cristiano Ronaldo's last-minute penalty on Wednesday, which reportedly led to some players clashing in the tunnel after the game.

Mario Mandzukic's first-half brace stunned the Santiago Bernabeu before a awful error from Keylor Navas saw Blaise Matuidi wipe out what remained of Madrid's commanding 3-0 first-leg advantage. The referee's decision to award a penalty kick in favour of Real Madrid against Benatia's push on Lucas' back.

Ronaldo showed he can wait, and not be exhausted of waiting, as Buffon's replacement, Wojciech Szczesny, took an age to ready his gloves and prepare himself for the penalty kick that referee Michael Oliver awarded correctly. "We are here and we deserved it, and I am really happy about that", he said.

I will say this: The United States has a lot to offer, with the greatest and most powerful economy in the history of the world. It is fair to surmise that Trump had no idea what was in the TPP and could not identify anything specifically wrong with it.

It finally caught up to the Moroccan, as he gave Real a life line which they duly made expert use of, sending the Bernabeu faithful into a state of delirium after Ronaldo's penalty sailed into the net.

To further add to the controversy, referee Michael Oliver dismissed Gianluigi Buffon for his complaints in what is expected to be his final European game before retirement.

"Lucas was pushed from behind and if the penalty was given, it's a goal". Mario Mandzukic scored the first after just two minutes, heading home Sami Khedira's deft lofted pass, and the Croatian doubled Juventus's advantage on 38 minutes, this time powering home Stephan Lichtsteiner's cross with his head. Juventus will not argue that the offside call on Isco in the first half was an incorrect one but they will argue that Real Madrid get favours from referees - what gall!

Out of the four states recently or now undergoing teacher protests, only Arizona does not have state-determined teacher salaries. The Arizona Educators United coalition had called for 20% pay raises, but it wasn't satisfied after Ducey's announcement.

And on Wednesday night, Real Madrid progressed into the semi-finals in the most controversial of circumstances against Serie A's Juventus. Vincenzo Montella's side had their chances in the first half with Joaquin Correa and Sergio Escudero both failing to convert.

"I walked up the stairs and somebody told me (Roma had gone through) - I really thought it was a joke", he said after the win over City. He scored the penalty and we got the win. "It shows that nothing is a given in football, you have to fight until the end". Oliver pointed to the spot, sending Gianluigi Buffon into a rage.

Real Madrid now joins the likes of AS Roma from Italy, Bayern Munich from Germany, and Liverpool from England to battle for a place in the final which will be played in Kyiv.

Most rockets in Western attacks on Syria were intercepted - Russian Federation
Intelligence and open source accounts indicated that the Syrian government was behind the attack on Saturday, according to the PM. Dunford said there was some "activity" by Syrian surface-to-air missiles, but there were no reports of USA or allied casualties.

Juve made a ideal start and went on to build on the frailties of Los Blancos as the contest headed for extra time.
