Bayern complains to UEFA about Spanish police

Doyle BarkerApr 29, 2017

Tuesday's treble extended Ronaldo's lead over Barcelona rival Lionel Messi as the top scorer in Champions League history.

With a 10-man Bayern then chasing the game in the closing minutes of extra-time, further goals from Ronaldo and Marco Asensio sealed the tie. He came into the series against Bayern in a scoring drought of almost seven months in the European tournament, and had scored only once in his last five Madrid games in all competitions.

Bayern were left incensed, though, as Ronaldo's second and third goals were clearly offside.

The Italian champions barely gave Barca a glimmer of hope of repeating their historic turnaround against Paris St Germain in the last 16 and protected their healthy advantage from the first leg by starving the hosts of space and clear sights of goal.

It is not the first time the Bernabeu natives have booed Ronaldo and he grew increasingly desperate to find the net with a series of wild efforts, including at one point ignoring strike partner Karim Benzema to go for goal himself, infuriating the home crowd.

Ancelotti made the case for video technology immediately after the game, saying the mistakes were unacceptable for the Champions League quarterfinals.

"But I take the positive things".

"It was a very hard-fought game, but in the end, we got a good result, which I believe we deserved".

'I think we've seen the transformation of a player.

But they had Arturo Vidal sent off with a controversial second booking, eventually losing 4-2 - 6-3 on aggregate - to miss out on the biggest club prize in Europe and have goalkeeper Manuel Neuer ruled out for eight weeks with a broken foot.

Following the clashes between Leicester City supporters and officers that preceded last week's quarter-final first leg between Atletico Madrid and the Premier League champions, authorities in the Spanish capital pledged to reinforce its police presence for Bayern's visit.

"We knew that, if we didn't play really well, Bayern can score goals on any pitch", he said. "What Cristiano is doing is impressive". "The goals, the way he finishes them, in such key moments..." We're happy with the players who played, those who came on and those that didn't feature. He turned towards the stands in celebration before putting his finger to his lips after being the subject of jeers during the first-half.

Bayern has now been eliminated in four straight seasons by Spanish sides.

"We are just winners", Ronaldo told the Real Madrid website. "We are going to fight for it".

The French mentor said: "Perhaps the fans won't boo him anymore, but this is the Bernabeu and it can happen from time to time and he knows that".

"All I ask is that they don't boo me here, that's all", Ronaldo said. "We need everyone in the team to help".
