Ronaldo Hits Historic 100th UCL Goal As Real Advance Past Bayern

The defending champions led 2-1 from the away first leg, but lost 1-2 for a 3-3 aggregate at full time in the home second leg before Ronaldo's intervention.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to send Real Madrid through to the Champions League semi-finals with a 4-2 extra-time win against 10-man Bayern Munich to seal a 6-3 aggregate victory in controversial circumstances.

But the game was marred by some dodgy refereeing: Bayern's Viktor Real was sent off and two of Ronaldo's goals in extra time were clearly off-side.

"I think we played well overall and we can leave with our heads held high", Bayern defender Jerome Boateng said.

The city of Madrid's love affair with the UEFA Champions League will continue into the semi-finals of this season's competition after both Atletico and Real triumphed in their quarter-final ties on Tuesday evening.

There will be a strong sense of injustice, but it should be a source of pride to Carlo Ancelotti that his side looked threatening throughout the early stages of extra time despite being a player short and with Lewandowski subtituted to shore things up.

Ancelotti continued via Mediaset Premium : "We had thought of everything going into this game - except the referee".

"In the first half we could have scored one or two goals; it was the same in the second half, but we conceded".

Ronaldo took advantage at not being flagged for offside as he controlled and fired low past Neuer to become the first man to reach a Champions League century. "We're fair winners", he added.

"He scored three goals and the fans will be grateful for what Cristiano has done".

He needed a hat trick against Bayern Munich in the second leg of their quarterfinal tie to reach the milestone, and he did just that. That moment in the 84th minute was a defining one for the match and 10-man Bayern found themselves no match for Madrid as play went into extra 30 minutes.

Ronaldo equalised in the 76th minute when a flawless lofted pass from Casemiro found him. Luka Modric flickered in patches, and their best player on the night was Marcelo, who put in a powerhouse performance and would not have been begrudged a goal had he elected to shoot instead of square to Ronaldo for his third.

Security guards and Bayern fans got into a confrontation at the stands at halftime but the altercation ended quickly.
