Ronaldo hat-trick seals Real Madrid win
Real Madrid are in the Champions League semi-final for the seventh successive year, having defeated Bayern Munich 4-2.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to take his Champions League tally to 100 goals as holders Real Madrid controversially overcame Bayern Munich in extra time to reach the semi-finals.
Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal’s was sent off on 84th-minutes with a tough dismissal, Ronaldo was then clearly offside to score Madrid’s second in extra time.
Needing at least two goals to progress, Bayern had led when Robert Lewandowski confidently scored a penalty.
Madrid struggled to press at the Bernabeu before Ronaldo headed in Casemiro’s precise cross.
Bayern responded just 36 seconds later as Sergio Ramos’ own goal forced extra time, but then crumbled after Ronaldo illegally fired in Madrid’s second.
Ronaldo then tapped in the third – for his 100th Champions League goal – after Marcelo’s marauding run, with Marco Asensio sealing victory by firing into the bottom corner.
Madrid will discover their semi-final opponents when the draw is made on Friday.
