Ronaldo: Don’t understand Juve

Cristiano Ronaldo claims he ‘doesn’t understand’ why Juventus protested Real Madrid’s penalty but believes ‘we were fair winners’ overall.

“We suffered, but we need to learn from this. It’s a lesson for us,” the tie-decider told BeIN Sports.

“In football, nothing is a given. You have to fight to the end. We could’ve scored more goals, but Juve and Buffon did well. We were fair winners [over both legs].

“The penalty? I don’t understand why they protested, Lucas was taken down from behind. If they didn’t provoke the penalty, it would’ve been a goal.

“Scoring in the 98th minute? Your heart beats quicker, but I calmed myself down. I knew I’d be decisive.

“Semi-finals? Anything can happen in football. We didn’t play well, but it serves as a lesson for us.”
