Ref has garbage bag instead of heart - Buffon

One insane minute, at the end of an incredible Champions League quarterfinal second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, perfectly summed up the contrasting fortunes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gianluigi Buffon in club football's most prestigious competition. During the game, Benatia and the rest of them had already been kicking us from behind. "But he's driven by setting new records and the dream of winning Champions League".

As with Zidane, though, the ignominy of Buffon's exit could become a part of the legend. He would've left it running, turned around and let the two teams fight it out in extra time.

Costa could have ended up seeing his current club drawn against his parent side in Friday's semi final draw if Max Allegri's men had managed to see off Real at Santiago Bernabeu.

"I'd say them all again - maybe with a different type of language".

The term has since been etched into football's lexicon.

The 40-year-old veteran goalkeeper was incensed by Oliver's decision to award Real Madrid a penalty in the closing stage of the game.

"The team gave its all, but a human being can not destroy dreams like that at the end of an extraordinary comeback on a dubious situation", the 40-year-old said, per BBC Sport.

"A human being can not whistle for an incident so doubtful after a game like that, unless you have a garbage bin instead of a heart".

Replays, however, showed that there was contact between Benatia and Vazquez, who was denied a chance to score.

Playing what many believe was his last UEFA Champions League encounter Juventus captain and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon couldn't hold back his emotions, saying that he regrets leaving the way he did.

Ron said: "I don't understand why they protested the penalty. I had to let that out, even if it damaged my reputation", he said.

Before Oliver's intervention, the Italian champions led the return leg 3-0. When Keylor Navas fumbled Douglas Costa's cross on the hour, allowing Blaise Matuidi to stab home, Juve were on the cusp of ensuring there would be no Spanish representative in the last four.

"On top of that, if you don't have the character to walk on a pitch like this in a stadium like this, you can sit in the stands with your wife, your kids, drinking your Sprite and eating crisps".

"Everyone knows that this match had to go into extra-time and the best team would have won".

Gianluigi Buffon has refused to apologise for his comments on referee Michael Oliver.

Coincidentally, Oliver's first time officiating a Serie A side was Juve's 2-1 win against Sporting Lisbon in October 2017, in which he booked two players on each side.

When the pushing and shoving was eventually brought under control, the much-decorated Buffon was red carded and, in my opinion, rightly so.
