Ronaldo happy to hit 100-goal milestone - Zidane

Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid overturned a 1-0 half-time deficit to win 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions quarter-final at the Allianz Arena to take a huge step towards a record seventh consecutive semi-final.

Talk before the game was that Lewandowski was the only irreplaceable player in this Bayern side; as the second half went on, the absence of Mats Hummels at center back grew stronger.

Arturo Vidal headed Bayern into a first-half lead yesterday, but then skied a penalty attempt on the stroke of half-time before Ronaldo volleyed the defending champions level.

Zinedine Zidane's men will now go back to Madrid knowing they have two vital away goals to their name for the return bout at the Santiago Bernabeu next Tuesday.

He clearly had little time for those who claimed his powers are diminishing with age.

To be able to reach this mark is an honour and against a team like Bayern it is better still, ” Ronaldo, who scored both goals, told BeIN Sport Spain. You have to tell me who doubts me because none of it has come to me.

"We are still alive", said Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti after losing to his former side. Sometimes we score, sometimes we do not.

Real made a poor start, rarely threatening Germanys goalkeeper Neuer, back after minor foot surgery a fortnight ago.

Sergio Ramos jumps on his teammate Cristiano Ronaldo to celebrate their side's 2nd goal during the Champions League.

They also offered to help find resources to those with substance abuse issues without issuing jail time. In a follow-up tweet, the police department said: "All jokes aside, substance abuse is a real issue.

But the Chilean missed a chance to hit a double of his own after sending a penalty over the crossbar, and, as the game wore on, Real took charge. "They have a great team and great players", Zidane said.

"You are never going to kill off the tie", Zidane said.

Bayern had to play the final 30 minutes a man down after Martinez picked up two yellows in quick succession for fouls on Ronaldo, but the Bundesliga champions rode their luck to remain in the tie, much to Zidane's annoyance.

"We needed to dig in during the very first half, but we revealed that we understood the best way to set ourselves up on the pitch".

'I've worked with the fitness coach to be good for these two months. A few of these ended up in goals and we come away from here fantastic to have scored another, which might have made matters more comfortable in the return leg.

"I want to congratulate the team for the second-half performance".

The Frenchman is hoping Welsh winger Gareth Bale will be fit for the return having gone off in the second-half Munich with a leg injury.

"Nevertheless, we're joyful and are satisfied to have got a triumph here, which will be consistently really significant". He was replaced by youngster Marco Asensio, who went on to make the assist for Ronaldo's victor.
