  • Buffon's rant over red card from Oliver

Gianluigi Buffon described referee Michael Oliver as having a "trash can" for a heart after awarding a controversial penalty that saw Real Madrid progress to the Champions League semi-finals at the expense of Juventus.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon lost his temper after the added time penalty call and received a red card for grilling referee Michael Oliver.

Real were beaten 3-1 by Juventus with Cristiano Ronaldo slotting an injury-time penalty to advance 4-3 on aggregate after winning the first leg 3-0 in Turin.

"I know the referee saw what he saw, but it was certainly a dubious incident".

Volkswagen's Diess goes from lame duck to top dog in two years
The move is part of an effort to reorganize the company to do business more efficiently, the company said. Mr Diess joined VW from German rival BMW in mid-2015, shortly before the scandal erupted publicly.

"I can promise you, I did not push him", said Benatia. "I also told him that in the first leg at minutes 92 there was a penalty on [Juan] Cuadrado", Allegri said.

"To award such a doubtful, or super doubtful, penalty just ahead of the final whistle and destroy the work of a team who gave absolutely everything you have to have a rubbish bin instead of your heart", Buffon said.

"It's not [only] Juve, but Roma had penalties denied against Barcelona, Milan went out of the Europa League with Arsenal, us tonight", Agnelli said. It means you don't know where you are, what teams you face, what football is: "you don't really know shit".

"Otherwise he [Michael Oliver] should be in the stands eating crisps, drinking Sprite, Coca-Cola or orange juice or whatever he wants".

Syria air base attack: 14 killed, including Iranian forces
The children of Eastern Ghouta, in the suburb of the capital Damascus, have already suffered through years of violence. He added that it also hit posts outside the base used by the Iranians and Iran-backed fighters.

"I don't understand why they are protesting", he said in quotes published by Marca.

"You can not ruin the dreams of a team". And especially you need personality to referee a game like this.

The Real Madrid forward's acrobatic effort helped his side to a 3-0 lead in the quarter-final first-leg as the reigning champions eventually booked their place in the final four.

Buffon, playing what could be his last game in European competition, was sent off for his protests. All that we can take from it is what we showed on the field, where we played a great game and always believed.

Fake candidates list for Karnataka election sends Congress into tizzy
The first list of BJP, comprising 72 candidates, for the upcoming May 12 Karnataka assembly elections has been released. The meeting discussed the names of probable candidates for rest of the seats in the 225-member state Assembly.
