Arturo Vidal bemoans "robbery" in Champions League tie

Cristiano Ronaldo praised Real Madrid's winning mentality after his hat-trick helped them through to the Champions League soccer semi-finals with a 4-2 second-leg win over Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

Zidane said about Ronaldo after the game: "He has shown that in the key moments, he is there".

Juve are through to the final four of the competition after holding Barcelona to a goalless stalemate at Camp Nou on Wednesday evening, meaning that they progressed with their 3-0 win from the first leg in Italy.

He was being outshone by the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar both in the Spanish league and in the Champions League.

However, it was Bayern who took the lead in the second half when Casemiro fouled Robben in the area and Lewandowski dispatched the penalty.

"We played very well, obviously I am very happy to score all three goals, but the team has been great". It was not a red card, and for their goals it was offside for one, maybe two.

According to reports in Spain, police were forced to remove three Bayern Munich players from the referee's dressing room following their tempestuous exit.

"This robbery can't happen in the Champions League". Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti also criticized the referee's performance after the game, while his players were unanimous in pinning the blame for the defeat on Kassai. "I think everyone was a witness to a game that wrote history today", Rummenigge said.

His Real Madrid counterpart Zinedine Zidane did not want to discuss the refereeing but he claimed Bayern's second goal could have also been ruled offside. "There are decisions that have penalised us a lot".

Just what Ronaldo deserved - his goals may have been offside, but he was once again the hero.

Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos has paid tribute to the Bayern Munich fans who cheered his son scoring a goal on the Bernabeu pitch after their Champions League quarter-final second-leg.

"The referee probably wasn't up to the task", said the Italian, a former Real boss.

Ulreich has been rumored to be looking for a more regular starting opportunity elsewhere, so this could be his chance to showcase what he's able to do.
