Ronaldo's hat-trick fires Real Madrid in Champions League semis

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrated his 100th Champions League goal with a stunning hat-trick as Real Madrid stormed to a 4-2 victory over Bayern Munich.

The Chilean saw red in the 84th minute after picking up a second yellow card after appearing to win the ball in a sliding tackle.

"In the key moments Ronaldo is always there", said Zidane after the game.

"Madrid were better, it's not easy to score six goals against Bayern".

"We don't know. The important thing is to not make a mistake".

Bayern was trying to become only the third team to reverse a first-leg home loss in Champions League history, along with Inter Milan in 2011 and Ajax in 1996.

"Maybe they will not whistle Ronaldo any more".

After a scoreless first half at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Bayern Munich opened the scoring early in the second with a Robert Lewandowski penalty kick.

Casemiro was harshly penalised when Arjen Robben tumbled inside the Madrid box, whilst Lewandowski was also offside in the build-up to Ramos's own goal.

For the fourth time in a row, Bayern Munich were knocked out of the Champions League by a Spanish side.

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti agreed with Vidal and said in his media conference that the referees needed video help.

However, Ronaldo scored the equaliser in the 76th minute before Bayern responded just 36 seconds later as Sergio Ramos' own goal forced extra time.

Two more goals from Ronaldo - both of which looked offside upon replays - and a Marco Asensio strike catapulted Zinedine Zidane's men past their German opponents. They turned up at the Bernabéu having lost 1-2 in the first leg and still managed to force extra-time.

Five minutes later, and Ronaldo had completed his treble when receiving a ball from Marcelo after the left-back made a dazzling run through the Bayern defence.
