C.Ronaldo pushes Real Madrid to the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League

The 2nd leg of the UEFA Champions League battle between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich was held on April 18 of 2017 and the Spanish club came out on top with a 4-2 which was more than enough for the team of Zinedine Zidane to advance into the semifinals of the European football competition.

Cristiano Ronaldo secured a hat-trick in this match as the Portuguese player scored 3 times while Marcos Asensio was also able to find the back of the net. Bayern Munich tried to make a comeback and stay alive with Robert Lewandowski scoring a penalty set-piece and an own goal of Sergio Ramos kept the hope of Bayern Munich alive but they failed to score any other goal and the aggregate scoreboard showed 6-3 with Real Madrid emerging victorious.

When the match was over, Zinedine Zidane showed particular praise to Cristiano Ronaldo as the Portuguese player was able to mark his name in the history-books of the UEFA Champions League after becoming the very 1st footballer to score 100 goals in the European competition.

The 2nd top goal-scorer of all time in the UEFA Champions League is Lionel Messi who has scored a total of 94 goals.

During the post-match conference of Zinedine Zidane, the French manager highlighted the impact that C.Ronaldo had in the match as he said: "He has shown that in the key moments, he is there. He makes the difference. When he has to be, he is. He is unique and we are happy for him and for the team. And for the people who have helped us in the Bernabeu."

This victory over Bayern Munich has allowed Real Madrid to qualify for the 7th successive time into the semifinals of the UEFA Champions League and the Spanish club is hoping to win it once again.
