Bayern complains to UEFA about Spanish police

Arturo Vidal bemoans

After Arturo Vidal was sent off for a highly dubious second yellow card, Cristiano Ronaldo tucked away two goals which both appeared to be from an offside position.

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

The Bavarians cancelled out their 2-1 quarter-final first leg defeat to take the game to extra-time in Madrid.

He hadn't been scoring a lot of goals and was even jeered at times by Real Madrid fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

His triple took his UEFA Champions League tally to an incredible 100 goals - a milestone no other player has achieved in the competition's history.

Germany worldwide Muller stressed that Bayern "did not put in a flawless performance", but added: "We were in great shape mentally after we went 2-1 up and still had 11 players on the pitch".

With the German side needing to score twice, Ronaldo finished his hat-trick and Asensio also scored as Madrid twice caught Bayern on the break.

"I think we deserved more", fumed Ancelotti.

Keane also gave his views on the introduction of video replays to assist match officials, after a series of high profile errors cost Bayern Munich in their two games with Real Madrid. Ultimately Bayern went toe-to-toe with the reigning European champions, a side turned into a winning machine by coach Zinedine Zidane, and came up only marginally short. We've had a lot of tough games, but tonight's was the most hard of them all.

"Bayern feel the behaviour of the Spanish police is utterly out of place and excessive, and have lodged a complaint with UEFA about the actions of the Spanish police".

Ronaldo levelled the scores after Robert Lewandowksi's opener as he headed home Casemiro's cross.

For Alonso, this farewell was made all the more poignant because it was against Real, the club at which he spent five years of his career - playing his part in helping them reach the 2014 'La Decima'-clinching final in Lisbon.

"If the referee didn't make mistakes we don't know what would have happened", added Ancelotti, who was returning to the Bernabeu for the first time since being sacked as Real boss in 2015.
