The Spanish worldwide was suspended for his side's second-leg clash with Juventus having picked up a yellow card in the first leg, and with his side trailing 3-0 and headed for extra-time given that the scores were locked 3-3 on aggregate - the Real captain broke a UEFA rule as he left the stands and went to the side of the pitch for the closing moments of the match. The crowd got nervous when Mario Mandzukic added his second goal before halftime, and the unlikely comeback was almost complete when Blaise Matuidi scored the third about 15 minutes into the second half.
The Spanish side progressed to the last four despite losing 3-1 to Juventus on Wednesday but won a thrilling tie 4-3 on aggregate.
Juventus goalkeeper Giannluigi Buffon was then sent off for remonstrating with the English referee, which led to protests from his teammates.
'What happened to Barcelona wasn't going to happen to us because we're Real Madrid'.
Alonso had jumped over the barrier and celebrated with his teammates when Gareth Bale had scored in the win over Atletico Madrid. He was hauled off at half-time, with Real two down, and replaced by Marco Asensio.
Sami Khedira hung a deep cross to the back post where Mandzukic powered a header past Navas.
"There are no favorites in this stage", Madrid right back Dani Carvajal said.
In between, Real had dictated possession and created chances of their own, but Buffon was in imperious form. "But in the end we deserved to advance".
Real, though, were shaky at the back, the channel between Marcelo and 21-year-old Jesus Vallejo regularly offering Juve hope.
On the hour-mark, the visitors drew level in the tie.
The penalty came as Vazquez was in position to score in front of the goal after Ronaldo headed down a cross into the area.
