Ronaldo Stars in Real Madrid's 4-2 Quarterfinal Win Over Bayern

Marco Asensio also scored late for Madrid, who advanced 6-3 on aggregate after a 2-1 first leg win in Germany.

"Lewandowski is a real number nine and a bonus for Bayern", Madrid coach Zidane said at a press conference.

However, Zidane insisted the 11-time European champions are not assured of anything despite having the advantage thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo s second-half double at the Allianz Arena.

The reigning The Best FIFA Men's Player of the Year scored a hat-trick to become the first player to score 100 Champions League goals.

However, the Portuguese's second and third goals were offside, whilst visitors Bayern had Arturo Vidal sent off five minutes from the end of normal time.

Both sides only know how to attack, and I think we could be in for another thriller.

Bayern's fatigue was apparent as Marcelo danced around Kimmich, then laid the ball off for Ronaldo to tap home - again with a suggestion of offside - and complete his hat trick with a landmark goal.

Zinedine Zidane's men are looking to become the first team to defend the Champions League and go into this game with great momentum, following Alvaro Morata's last gasp victor at Sporting Gijon on Saturday, which made it ten wins out of 11 in all competitions.

Erdogan President says Turkey could hold referendum on European Union membership bid
Turkey's High Electoral Board made a last-minute decision on Sunday to count ballots that had not been stamped by officials. But Erdogan told the mission to "know your place", saying Turkey had no intention of paying any attention to the report .

The reigning EPL champion held Atletico to a 1-1 draw at King Power Stadium in the second leg of the quarter-final but went out 2-1 on aggregate after the Spanish outfit won the first leg 1-0.

Lewandowski has haunted Madrid in the past, scoring four times in a famous semi-final, first leg rout for Borussia Dortmund on their way to the Champions League final in 2013.

"We played a lot of hard matches this season, but this one was the most hard one", Zidane said.

"We'll go there and try to turn the tide", Bayern defender Philipp Lahm said. "It hurts to go out in extra time, but we were a man down for over an hour across the tie".

The Poland global missed the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final tie due to a shoulder injury but is expected to return to the starting XI in Spain.

However, it was Bayern who took the lead when Casemiro fouled Robben in the area and Lewandowski sent Navas the wrong way from the spot.

Jerome Boateng bailed out a rare mistake from goalkeeper Manuel Neuer as he cleared off the line from Ramos after Neuer fumbled a simple cross. Cristiano Ronaldo levelled with a deft header, before Sergio Ramos' own goal swung the tie back in Bayern's favour.

Ramos almost put the hosts ahead after the otherwise superb Manuel Neuer spilled a shot, but Jerome Boateng somehow blocked his effort on the line to keep his side in the tie.
