Her husband refereed the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final between Real Madrid and Juventus.

But, in injury-time, with extra-time just 30 seconds away, Real's Lucas Vazquez tumbled under the challenge of Juve defender Mehdi Benatia and referee Michael Oliver awarded a hotly disputed penalty.

"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.

Former Juve captain Del Piero has since been criticised by fans of the Serie A champions and the 43-year-old used Twitter to hit back.

"I don't think he deserved to be sent off", Zidane said. I had to let that out, even if it damaged my reputation'.

Ronaldo also appeared to whisper some comforting words into Buffon's ear after the Italian announced earlier this season that this campaign will be his last.

Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has defended keeper Gianluigi Buffon's reaction during his side's Champions League exit at Real Madrid.

Woman who drove SUV with family off cliff was drunk, police say
On April 6, a vehicle was reportedly submerged in the Eel River, a little north of the town of Leggett, during heavy rains. Several of the items have been positively identified, by family members, as belonging to the Thottapilly family.


And the Italian legend said he still believes that 33-year-old referee Oliver lacked experience.

The Serie A club roared into a 3-0 second-leg lead against Real Madrid to level the insane quarter-final clash.

"I'm sure Oliver will have a great career in future, but he's too young to officiate a match like that", Buffon added. Los Blancos' Cristiano Ronaldo then made matters worse, dispatching the penalty comfortably and sending Juventus out of the competition. It all ended there, but naturally in the heat of the moment one does feel I'm not saying penalised...

'Before being a Juventino, I am an Italian, and I really cared about Italian football doing well. I felt defrauded. Not defrauded of the result, but of the night.

"I am definitely sorry about that but I also know that I wasn't dealing with a person with a lot of awareness of feelings otherwise he wouldn't have made two big mistakes in the space of two minutes".

BBC Sport reported on Sunday that Oliver's wife Lucy, a women's Super League referee, had her mobile phone number posted on social media after the game, which led to her receiving abusive text messages.
