Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo on his 100th European goal - News

Bayern had Javi Martinez sent off in the second half, paving the way for Ronaldo's 77th-minute victor.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti felt his side can still turn the tie around.

However the score could have been well different if Vidal would not have missed the penalty at the last minute before the break when Bayern led 1-0. a 2-0 lead going into the second half would have been much different.

"They could have killed it (the tie) by scoring another goal, but they didn't. We've won the first match, the second is still to come", he added.

The Bavarians now have it all to do for the return in Madrid next Tuesday.

When the second half started it was all Real Madrid and Ronaldo made a wonderful goal from a great cross that Carvajal made.

The first-leg turned after the break as Ronaldo equalised, then Real dominated Bayern with the numerical advantage and peppered the Bayern goal.

"We have six days, we hope they will both be back", said the Italian.

In the first half of this Champions League quarter-final, Ronaldo was anonymous and his Real Madrid team were nowhere.

With the second leg to come next week, Lewandowski feels he has recovered from a shoulder problem and should be fit to feature against Los Blancos.

Marca reports that the return Champions League leg against Bayern will definitely be too soon for the player, and it remains to be seen whether he will make it back to play in the crucial El Clasico match the following weekend. With patience and by winning the ball from our opponents, the second half was very good.

The 32-year-old first found the net during Manchester United's 3-0 win over Hungarian outfit Debrecen in a Champions League qualifier in August 2005, with Wayne Rooney and Ruud van Nistelrooy also on the scoresheet that night.

Cristiano Ronaldo has not quite been his usual ridiculous goalscoring self this season, with questions, slowly but surely, being asked over the Real Madrid superstar's powers waning as age finally catches up.

Madrid extended their lead over Barcelona at the top of La Liga to three points last weekend, with a game in hand still left to play.
