Ronaldo hat-trick sends Real Madrid into semi-finals after thriller

We scored two goals.

Bayern were stunned when Vidal, left, was shown his second yellow card, in the 85th minute.

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.

The Portuguese, who now has eight goals against Bayern, is the third player to score a hat-trick against the German heavyweights in the Champions League after Roy Makaay (Deportivo La Coruna) and Sergio Aguero (Manchester City).

"The referee's task is quite hard, whether it's for or against us I won't get into it", said Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick, including two crucial strikes that were offside, as 10-man Bayern rued their luck at the Estadio Bernabeu.

"We played a lot of hard matches this season, but this one was the most hard one", Zidane said.

Durant shines in Golden State playoff debut in Game 1 win
Their lead scorer at the time was Kevin Durant with 16 points. "But I've known Draymond Green since he was at Michigan State". It was an incredible effort from both players, as they picked up their level of play to match the intensity of the Warriors .

The Bayern manager said the official's performance was "worse" than that his team's after a questionable second yellow card for Arturo Vidal on 84 minutes, and two Cristiano Ronaldo goals that probably should have been ruled offside.

Lewandowski, who had missed the first leg because of a right shoulder injury, calmly scored from the spot with a right-foot shot, sending Keylor Navas the wrong way.

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

Needing to score at least twice to avoid exiting the competition, Bayern produced a strong start as former Real winger Arjen Robben fired into the side netting.

However, Real's celebrations were very short-lived as just a minute later the ball ricocheted around their box and Ramos turned into his own net.

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