However, referee Michael Oliver then awarded a contentious spot-kick in added time after ruling Mehdi Benatia had bundled Lucas Vazquez over in the box.

Cristiano Ronaldo is now the first player in Champions League history to score in 11 straight games, and has put Real Madrid on his back to lead them to their record 13th Champions League semifinal.

Ronaldo, who scored his 120th Champions League goal before celebrating with his shirt off in front of the Real fans, admitted he had to calm himself down before stepping up for the memorable victory.

"We suffered, but we need to learn from this".

"I do not understand why they protest against the penalty", Ronaldo told beIN Sports after the match.

"I think they are an even better team this season than last", Zidane said. He doesn't feel pressure.

"We want to win everything".

"There is nothing left to say".
