Real Madrid stuns Bayern to take lead in CL tie

Bayern were without leading goalscorer Lewandowski as they suffered a 2-1 defeat to the defending champions at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo's double inspired Real Madrid to a 2-1 victory over 10-man Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday as the Spaniards hit back from a goal down to steal an away win. Soon after the first goal, Bayern and Vidal got one more opportunity to score by penalty but the midfielder failed to score, reports BBC.

By the way, Barcelona and Real Madrid compete in the El Clasico, which for many is the greatest rivalry in club football. The second challenge may not have touched Ronaldo, but it was cynical enough for Rizzoli to issue another yellow and perhaps doom Bayern.

Real pressed home the numerical advantage as Ronaldo tapped the ball between the legs of Bayern's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer for the victor on 77 minutes.

Ronaldo had been sitting on 98 European competition goals since September.

From Cristiano Ronaldo's new record to Dortmund fans' hospitality, relive the best of the UCL quarterfinal first legs.

The goals were the 99th and 100th by Ronaldo in European club competition, giving him the milestone almost seven months after he had scored his last Champions League goal in a 2-2 group-stage draw at Borussia Dortmund.

The former Real Madrid and Juventus player felt that his side should have scored more in a game that saw Carlo Ancelotti's men play with ten for around half an hour as Javi Martinez was sent-off for a second bookable offence.

Despite scoring 28 goals in 37 outings this season - including 19 in La Liga - Ronaldo has been scrutinised by different pundits this season for a perceived lack of form and commitment. First, it was failure of finding the net after a cross from Arjen Robben, which was followed by a very important penalty miss that changed the game completely for the hosts. "But we have the advantage and will play at home".

"We played a very good first half". We don't need a miracle like Barcelona had in their return match against Paris. Hopefully, it will be another great game and that Real Madrid can demonstrate they can win the Champions League and a League title in the same year.
