The defender did what his captain, Gianluigi Buffon, who he was also very hard with Michael Oliver, referee in charge of whistling the game: “If you have the cynicism of conceding a penalty like that in minute 93 you are not human, you are an animal.” If you have no personality, stay in the stands eating potatoes with your wife and do not carry a historic feat, “he said in statements to BeIN Sports.
Both players complained after achieving a comeback that could be historical Juventus needed to turn around the 0-3 of Turin and the truth is that it was ready. Mandzukic scored twice in the first half and left the tie clear for his side. So much so, that Zidane made changes in the second half: he entered Lucas Vázquez and Asensio and retired Bale already Casemiro . Subsequently, he would also send out Kovacic which replaced Luka Modric.
However, the Italian side followed suit and scored the third. Matuidi took advantage of an error by Keylor Navas at the start to push the ball into the goal and tie the tie. But a takedown of Benatia on Lucas Vázquez in the last minute that the referee considered a penalty, changed everything. Ronaldo placed the ball at the 11-meter point and put it into the squad. And the end of the story: Madrid qualified for the semifinals and the Italian side left indignant for the arbitration. In fact, Pjanic in his Instagram wrote: “Vergüenza”.
