Sergio Ramos Says Real Madrid Deserved More Against Bayern Munich

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to end Bayern Munich's record run of 16 straight Championship League wins at home

Real overpower Bayern 2-1 in UEFA Champions League

I'm very happy. I want to thank Real Madrid for the opportunity to make a brilliant career at this club and my teammates as well.

"I'd describe the goals in a very simple way: impressive".

Ronaldo's second-half goals allowed him to end a six-game scoring drought in the Champions League, and kept Real on track to defend their European title.

"We know that April is a hard month, a decisive one, and the team looks good".

While Ronaldo and Benzema, along with goalkeeper Keylor Navas, will rest when Madrid visits Sporting Gijon, coach Zinedine Zidane said on Friday that an unidentified leg injury will keep Bale from playing.

Vidal could have given the hosts a two-goal cushion from the spot in first-half stoppage time following Dani Carvajal's handball, but stepping up in place of injured striker Robert Lewandowski he blazed the penalty over the bar.

Ronaldo scored his 100th UEFA goal in his 143rd game, over 11 years after his first (Aug. 9, 2005, against Debrecen).

Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich was seen as the flagship match of the quarterfinals of Champions League.

Ronaldo struck twice in the second half to secure the valuable victory after Bayern had led through Arturo Vidal, who also missed a penalty at the end of the first period. "I am very happy about that record and the fact he is so motivated to be on top".

That being said, the tension told when Marco Asensio, on as a substitute for Gareth Bale, clipped a delightful ball into Ronaldo's path on the 77th minute, and the forward got to the ball first to clip in the victor.

Real Madrid would catch another break with fouls from Martinez in the 58th and 61st minute that led to his sending off.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti, though, is determined to remain positive as he prepares to return to the Bernabeu for the first time since he left the Madrid club in 2015. We are all happy because getting a result here is not easy. "The coach [Zinedine Zidane] has managed things well, with good squad rotation, and we're ready for the final stage of the season".

"The medical department did a geat job trying to get him fit, but the risk was too great", Rummenigge said after the defeat. "In the return leg we will have to dig and we know that". Hopefully we'll win and reach the Semi-Final.
