Buffon Top Five Keepers

Buffon Top Five Keepers

Italy's great goalkeeper was left incandescent by referee Michael Oliver's decision to award Real Madrid a debatable but decisive stoppage-time penalty.

Italy and Juventus goalkeeper, Gianluigi Buffon, was sent off in what might be his last Champions League appearance as his side nearly completed a comeback victory against Real Madrid, but failed.

The English official adjudged defender Medhi Benatia to have fouled Lucas Vazquez after Ronaldo's knocked down header, and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was sent off for his furious reaction. "I said even at the time that incident would decide qualification".

The goals cancelled out Real's resounding 3-0 win in Turin a week earlier but Lucas Vazquez won a disputed injury-time penalty.

Incensed by the decision, Chiellini referred to last season's controversial quarter-final between Madrid and Bayern, who lost 4-2 at the Bernabeu and 6-3 on aggregate after Ronaldo's extra-time victor came from an offside position, while Arturo Vidal was sent off.

"It was a tenth of a penalty", he said.

Confused as to why Buffon would make reference to the first-leg of the tie, citing that "football is like that, we analyse the present moment", Del Piero is certain that "in a few days, Buffon will have different words to say to the referee".

Muenster police president Hajo Kuhlisch said the man had four apartments and several cars, all of which were searched by police. Prosecutors said he had faced allegations of threats, property damage and fraud in 2015 and 2016, all of which were dropped.

"If you break a dream like this and ruin an epic feat it means that instead of the heart you have a garbage bin". If you don't have personality, you better watch the game from the stands with your wife and your kids while eating chips. "You can't destroy dreams like that".

"During the game Benatia and the rest constantly kicked us from behind".

Regarding the events at the Bernabeu, Ronaldo added: "We have suffered, but it helps us to learn".

Bayern, playing in their seventh straight Champions League quarter-final, never needed to hit top form against Sevilla but were in control throughout with the largely toothless Spaniards only rarely venturing into their opponents' box.

"We need to change the referee designator every two or three years".

"Madrid could've scored more goals but Juve and Buffon were good".

Many fans have been sympathising with the veteran shot-stopper, but one Juve legend has been critical of Buffon's actions last night.
