Real Madrid has managed to fend off Bayern Munich at Santiago Bernabeu in one of the most controversial matches in recent times as the referee made some cruel decisions against the German giants.
Cristiano Ronaldo has hit the headlines as he managed to score a hattrick which proved decisive as holders clinched a place in the semifinals. The 32-year old has looked off guard for most of the match before opening the scoring for Los Blancos.
However, Bayern have managed to force the game into extra time and have looked bright throughout only to see Arturo Vidal getting sent off on a clean challenge.
Speaking after the game, Ronaldo who has now managed 100 goals in Champions League, said: “Either we played well or Bayern would beat us.
“They always score in every game and they’ve shown they’re an excellent team, but Real Madrid are Real Madrid and we’ve shown we’re superior.”
Cristiano added: “We are used to suffering and that’ a good thing. We were better, I don’t think there’s any doubt. To score six goals against this team is never easy and we deserved to go through.”
The Portuguese captain had a tough time for the first one hour before moving to a striker role. But the Madrid crowd have booed the Portugal international due to his anonymity in the first one hour and Ronaldo has asked the fans to not whistle him.
“I only ask that they don’t whistle me here. Never. I’m not bothered about anything else, but I don’t want them to whistle me.
“I always give my all and when I don’t score I try to work hard for the team.”
Finally, he said: “The positives from the game stay with me, without a doubt. We still can’t smell the 12th European Cup, but it’s getting close. We hope we can win it.”
Real Madrid have managed to reach their seventh successive semifinal which is a new record in Champions League era. But the social media got burst with the poor refereeing that has been the most talking point in an iconic night at Madrid with Bayern Munich clearly robbed off a victory.
