English referee Michael Oliver called the penalty in the third and final minute of stoppage time, leading to Cristiano Ronaldo's goal that eliminated Juventus in the quarterfinals of the Champions League despite a 3-1 win against the defending champions at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.The penalty call came after Juventus defender Medhi Benatia tried to keep Lucas Vazquez from scoring from close range after Ronaldo headed down a ball back toward the area.Buffon rushed toward Oliver immediately after the call and quickly got into his face to complain, prompting the red card.Buffon had a good performance to keep Juventus alive until the penalty call.Buffon said in June that this would be his final season unless Juventus won the Champions League.
