Watch: Insane Scenes As Last Minute Penalty & Buffon Red Card Spoil Juventus’ Comeback

One of the craziest matchups of the season ended in the most unbelievable of fashions as Real Madrid stunned Juventus at the very last.

What a conclusion.

It really did seem as though Juventus were destined to pull off an incredible upset as they levelled the scorelines after falling 3-0 behind in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final matchup with Real Madrid this evening.

The odds were well and truly stacked against them but after a Mario Mandzukic brace in the first-half followed by a Blaise Matuidi equaliser in the second, it did appear as though something special was in the air.

Unfortunately for them, with extra time just seconds away, Real Madrid were awarded a penalty and after that, they saw their talisman Gianluigi Buffon sent off for his aggressive protests.

Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to the plate and tucked home with a goal that broke the hearts of the Juventus-faithful in the most dramatic of fashions.
