KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Oliver awarded the Spanish side a 93rd-minute penalty for Mehdi Benatia's foul on Lucas Vazquez, which Cristiano Ronaldo scored to send Real through 4-3 on aggregate.

Legendary Juventus striker-turned-pundit Alessandro Del Piero has admitted that he struggles to understand Gianluigi Buffon's point of view after the veteran goalkeeper launched a scathing attack on match officials following Juventus' Champions League elimination at the hands of Real Madrid.

The BBC has reported that police are investigating abusive text messages sent to Oliver's wife - a Women's Super League referee who also officiates men's non-league football - after her mobile number was posted on social media.

However, as Allegri spoke to the media during Juve's latest press conference, he was quick to give his support to Buffon, saying "I challenge anyone not to react in that situation".

"Right there, you can not ask a man who lives sport as deeply as I do to be balanced, because even if I expressed these feelings in an exaggerated way, they were still logical thoughts". On top of that, if you don't have the character to walk on a pitch like this in a stadium like this, you can sit in the stands with your wife, your kids, drinking your Sprite and eating crisps.

"You can not ruin the dreams of a team". Many have sympathised with Buffon, whereas others have condemned him.

"Oliver was doing his job and hard to argue against his decisions".

The English global praises his countryman for staying cool in the situation, claiming he was "as cool in that moment as Cristiano Ronaldo".

"Buffon's reaction has caused great debate".

The 40-year-old Italian worldwide added: "You find a way to speak, right or wrong, that at times can seem excessive - but this is me, I am Gigi Buffon". I felt defrauded. Not defrauded of the result, but of the night.

"I am not defending Buffon but, at that moment, the emotions could not have been more highly charged". I'm not saying it wasn't a penalty, I am saying it was a dubious situation.
