Bayern want silverware to remedy Madrid heartache

Share

"In the big moments, Ronaldo always comes through", Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. The Bavarian giants were reduced to 10 men in both legs (red cards were shown to Javi Martinez in the first leg and Arturo Vidal in the second leg) and were on the backfoot for the majority of the 210 minutes as the second leg went into extra time.

"I watched both games against Bayern. The referee put us out of the Champions League".

With five Bundesliga games left they are eight points clear of second-placed RB Liepzig, seeking a fifth straight title.

Cristiano Ronaldo is "verging on ridiculous" after reaching a Champions League record of 100 goals, according to his former Manchester United team-mate Michael Carrick.

"He sustained the injury during the third goal, which was offside".

Vidal appeared to mainly get the ball in his challenge on Asensio, although he could have received a second yellow earlier for a foul on Casemiro.

Mainz were the last Bundesliga club to beat Bayern at home when they poached a 2-1 win at the Allianz Arena in March 2016.

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

The Bundesliga leaders now sit eight points clear of second-placed RB Leipzig with five matches of the season remaining, while they face Borussia Dortmund in the DFB Pokal semifinals later this month.

"When we led 2-1 they were scared".

Robert Lewandowski was also incorrectly pulled back for offside when Boateng sent a long ball through for what would have been a good chance for Bayern. "We have been shafted in the truest sense of the word", Rummenigge said in quotes reported by The Times. The highlight was arguably the save towards the end of the first leg where he simply held his arm out to block a Ronaldo rocket.
