New, comments

Unbelievable performance.

After Bayern Munich opened the scoring in the second half to give Real Madrid a scare, Cristiano Ronaldo headed in to bring Los Blancos back in front just for a short period of time. An own goal tied everything up and send the tie into Extra Time.

On the brink of the Extra Time halftime, Ronaldo put Madrid back in front after a nail-biting finish to regulation time.

He’s done it again. Cometh the moment, cometh the man. Cristiano Ronaldo has clinched his hat trick to send Real Madrid to the Champions League semifinals. After scoring the club’s only goal in regular time, he’s notched two in Extra Time to kill off Bayern Munich.

His third came off an amazing run by Marcelo through the heart of the Bayern defense to layoff for Ronaldo to tap-in his 100th career Champions League goal. Unbelievable performance by the legend.

Marco Asensio has added another late on to secure passage to the final four.
