Guardiola slapped with UEFA charge following hot-tempered Champions League clash with Liverpool

Real Madrid narrowly qualified into the Champions League semi finals after a last gasp penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo helped Los Blancos to win 4-3 on aggregate against Juventus despite losing 3-1 at the Bernabeu.

The defender was also involved in an incident with Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri before Cristiano Ronaldo slotted home the decisive goal that sent Madrid into the semi-finals at the Italians' expense.

The time on the clock and the ramifications had made it a pressure penalty in general, never mind when Ronaldo has three minutes to digest the situation. But Juve pulled a goal back after just 90 seconds this evening at the Bernabéu - a back post header from Mario Mandzukic inspired hope of a comeback for the visitors and they were back in the game after he found the net again at the far post just after the half hour.

Over in Italy, Corriere dello Sport go with the headline "what a robbery!" with a picture of the Juventus players surrounding referee Michael Oliver after the penalty decision. He celebrated by taking off his shirt and running toward the euphoric Madrid crowd.

Like Real Madrid, Bayern Munich are accustomed to the latter stages of the Champions League.
