Ronaldo hat trick puts Madrid into Champions League semis

Apr 19, 2017, 09:43

Bale was taken off during the second half of their 2-1 win in the first leg last week and was also missing for their 3-2 victory at Sporting Gijon last weekend.

Bayern saw midfielder Arturo Vidal sent off for what looked a harsh second caution to go into extra time with just 10 men.

Zinedine Zidane's men are looking to become the first team to defend the Champions League and go into this game with great momentum, following Alvaro Morata's last gasp victor at Sporting Gijon on Saturday, which made it ten wins out of 11 in all competitions.

In the other quarter-final match also played on Tuesday, Atletico Madrid held off a spirited Leicester City to reach their third semi-finals in four years.

Real Madrid will discover their semi-final opponents when the draw is made on Friday.

Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates hat-trick goal for Real Madrid against Bayern Munich.

Not long before the penalty, Marcelo had prevented Bayern from scoring by making a goal line clearance after a shot by Robben had beaten Navas.

Five minutes into the second period and Marcelo powered into the Bayern box before squaring for the waiting Ronaldo to sidefoot into an empty net and end Bayern's resistance.

Emerging nations urge rich countries to honour climate finance pledges - statement
The moves threaten to upend the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change backed by more than 190 nations including the US and China. Trump has made no secret of both his scepticism about climate change and his desire to revive the USA coal industry.

City took the game to Atletico after the break and gave themselves hope via Jamie Vardy's close-range finish which drew the tie 1-1 on the night but 1-2 aggregate.

Bayern's preferred centreback duo Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels face a race against time to be fit, while Javi Martinez is suspended after being sent-off in the first leg. And the first clear chance was for the German side, but Robben missed it.

In the Champions League, the defending European champions haven't lost at home in 12 consecutive matches, winning nine of the last 10.

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti said that "Lewandowski is OK - he trained yesterday with everyone and is fine".

However Ramos put the ball beyond his own goalkeeper to register an own goal two minutes after Ronaldo's goal to bring the aggregate score at this point to 3-3.

Ramos almost put the hosts ahead after the otherwise superb Manuel Neuer spilled a shot, but Boateng somehow blocked his effort on the line.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand. We know how hard Bayern are home and away.
