The referee's decision to award a penalty kick in favour of Real Madrid against Benatia's push on Lucas' back.

Juventus players were outraged by the decision with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon being dismissed in his final Champions League game.

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas 5, Daniel Carvajal 5, Raphael Varane 6, Jesus Vallejo 5, Marcelo 5, Casemiro 5, Luca Modric 6, Toni Kroos 6, Isco 6, Cristiano Ronaldo 8, Gareth Bale 6.
