  • Wedded officiators Lucy Oliver referees in the FA Women’s Super League

The FC panel examine the biggest moments between Real Madrid and Juventus, including the late penalty for Real Madrid, Gianluigi Buffon's red card and more.

The couple have been targeted in the wake of last Wednesday night's Champions League quarter-final, second-leg clash between Real Madrid and Juventus, during which Northumberland match official Oliver awarded a disputed injury-time penalty from which the Spaniards won the tie.

Buffon, playing his final Champions League match, was sent off by English referee Michael Oliver for his enraged protests at the decision to award a penalty when Medhi Benatia fouled Lucas Vazquez.

Cristiano Ronaldo smashed home the penalty to send Madrid through while Buffon continued his protestations and slammed Oliver after the game, with the Italian attracting strong criticism as a result. But that means you're alive, and that's why I came into the world. I am in harmony with the club, I go on vacation when the transfer window opens because I trust the club completely.

Italy icon Buffon has said this will be his last season and he announced his worldwide retirement after Italy's dramatic failure to qualify for the World Cup finals for the first time in 60 years.

The same officials say Syria has continued to produce or procure chlorine, which is also has industrial and agricultural uses. But instead of putting US muscle behind that proposition, Obama deflected Syria's growing upheaval, over and over, to the UN.


Buffon told La Iene: "I don't have to make up for anything, because I am a human being who puts passion, sentiment and anger into what I do".

"Being captain of the national team is the greatest gift that life has given me", said Buffon, who returned to play friendlies last month against England and Argentina with the Azzurri.

"But at certain levels, you have to be careful about what you say".

"I know other people are supporting her, she's always been a dynamic educator and a good referee", he said.

"Uefa strongly condemns the abuse directed at Michael Oliver and his wife", said European football's governing body in a statement to BBC Sport.
