Cristiano Ronaldo rescued Real Madrid from a shock Champions League exit as his injury-time penalty allowed the holders to edge out Juventus in the most dramatic of quarterfinals Wednesday, taking them through despite a 3-1 defeat.Mario Mandzukic's two first-half headers kept the dream alive before Blaise Matuidi capitalized on a Keylor Navas error to pull the Italians level with half an hour left. Edin Dzeko needed six minutes to set Roma on their way against Barcelona, but Juve needed just over one. Sami Khedira hung a deep cross to the back post where Mandzukic powered a header past Navas. Just after Mandzukic got his second goal, Raphael Varane rattled the crossbar with a header to which Buffon got his fingertips.Ronaldo exhaled and slammed it into the top right-hand corner to take Real into the semifinals.
