Ronaldo hat-trick fires Real into semis

21 April 2017

Ronaldo hit a hat-trick on Tuesday to add to the double he scored in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final, his goals helping to seal a 4-2 win in the Spanish capital and a 6-3 triumph on aggregate.

Bayern were victim of two harsh calls, as midfielder Arturo Vidal saw red, and Cristiano Ronaldo scored an effort which appeared offside.

Twice European champions Juve lacked the spark and power of their thrilling first-leg victory in Turin, but there was rarely any doubt they would exact revenge for their defeat by Barca in the 2015 Champions League final by reaching the semis for a 12th time.

"In the first half we had many opportunities and we could score a goal or two, also in the second half too".

Tuesday's treble extended Ronaldo's lead over Barcelona rival Lionel Messi as the top scorer in Champions League history.

"After 90 minutes, we won 2-1 in Madrid and I have to pay a massive compliment to the team for their performance over the 120 minutes", he added. "You have the decisions that penalized us a lot, Arturo's card was not a card and then two goals for Cristiano were offside", Ancelotti said.

"In extra time, we played with 10 men against 14", said defender Jerome Boateng, meaning the ref and his assistants were on Real's side.

"We had thought of everything going into this game - except the referee", Ancelotti was quoted as saying by the BBC on Wednesday.

Neuer, outstanding in both legs against Real, was injured in extra-time and will miss the final stretch of the season with Bayern leading by eight points in the Bundesliga with five matches remaining.

"I think we played the game very well, we deserved more".

Real fans might not appreciate Ronaldo like they should, but his teammates certainly do.

Bayern has now been eliminated in four straight seasons by Spanish sides.

In his most recent start, those seven hits led to seven runs, which was a big reason why he started the game with a 7.00 ERA. When the Marlins then put two runners on base against Marshall, manager Scott Servais summoned Rzepczynski for the final out.

Gerard Pique, who has been a critic of Real in the past, tweeted "when Ronaldo's 76th-minute goal, which was shown to be offside by TV replays, was allowed to stand".

"The referee has a very hard job", said Zidane.

Ronaldo levelled the scores after Robert Lewandowksi's opener as he headed home Casemiro's cross.
