Every word from Gianluigi Buffon's furious post-match rant about Michael Oliver

Replays appear to show that referee, Michael Oliver, made the correct decision to give a penalty when Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia bundled into the back of Madrid's Lucas Vazquez.

Gianluigi Buffon of Juventus argues with referee Michael Oliver after conceding a stoppage time penalty in their Champions League quarterfinal defeat.

Buffon was dismissed for his furious reaction towards Oliver after the English official pointed to the spot following Medhi Benatia's clumsy challenge on Madrid's Lucas Vazquez.

"The referee gave a penalty and it's left a bitter taste in the mouth, but I don't want to talk about these incidents". "I don't understand why they are protesting".

"I just told him [Oliver] that it wasn't a clear penalty", Allegri said.

Two Mario Mandzukic headers and Blaise Matuidi's second-half goal had remarkably dragged Juve back into the contest before Cristiano Ronaldo's late penalty sent Real through.

The Juve captain said after the game: "It was a tenth of a penalty". I don't know if it was his last game.

"I'm disgusted more and more with this football world, because when you make an effort like that, a referee can not give a penalty like that in the 93rd minute and destroy people's hopes".

Confused as to why Buffon would make reference to the first-leg of the tie, citing that "football is like that, we analyse the present moment", Del Piero is certain that "in a few days, Buffon will have different words to say to the referee". "You can't destroy dreams like that". If a referee doesn't have the character to walk on this pitch, you should sit in the stands and eat crisps.

"Clearly you can not have a heart in your chest, but a bag of rubbish".

The last few days have seen some of the most electrifying match-ups across Europe, with comebacks being the core of every single game.

"Coming here you have to know about Juve and Madrid's history given what happened in the first-leg".

As you may be aware, Juventus saw their Champions League voyage brought to a shuddering halt in the most dramatic of circumstances on a fateful Wednesday evening at the Bernabeu.

"It's a shame it ends like this, " Buffon said in comments translated by Spanish media.

"Napoli are still waiting for a misstep from us, but on Sunday we have an important match [against Sampdoria] which would allow us to stay ahead of Napoli, with six games to the end".
