Cristiano Ronaldo Consoles Buffon With A Hug After Champions League Match (Photos)
Cristiano Ronaldo has been spotted giving a hug to goalkeeper, Buffon after the heavy clash between Real Madrid and Juventus.
Cristiano Ronaldo once again grabbed the glory in the Champions League last night – and still found the time to console Gianluigi Buffon after Real Madrid’s controversial victory.
Buffon was sent off when protesting a very late penalty call in Real’s 3-1 victory over Juventus.
Juve had battled back from their 3-0 first-leg deficit and looked set to take the quarter-final into stoppage time.
But Michael Oliver’s decision to award a penalty for a challenge on Lucas Vazquez sparked outrage among the Juve players.
Buffon was red carded and Ronaldo scored the subsequent penalty.
Following the match, Buffon criticised the referee for the decision while Ronaldo insisted it was the correct call.
But the Italian goalkeeper appeared to let bygones be bygones when greeting Ronaldo in the mixed zone after the match.
