Ancelotti blames poor refereeing for Champions League defeat

Questions remain over whether two of his goals should have stood - and that's an understatement, because they were both offside - but you can't take anything away from him. Never. I'm not bothered about anything else, but I don't want them to whistle me.

VARs - which rule on key incidents concerning goals, red cards, mistaken identities and penalties - could be used in English football as early as August, with the EFL Cup first round touted as a possible initial testing bed for the technology.

Bayern also complained about the referee sending off their Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal for a foul, which according to Bayern players he did not commit.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to propel Madrid into the final at the expense of the German club who Kroos spent four years at from 2010 to 2014.

A statement released by Bayern on Wednesday read: "During the half-time break of Bayern Munich's Champions League match at Real Madrid on Tuesday, Bayern Munich's fans came in for some violent attacks by the Spanish police".

"We wanted to go through and there's a lot of anger in that a match of such intensity is decided by the referee".

In an exclusive behind-the-scenes video from Dugout.com, the Portuguese star is applauded by his team-mates and manager Zinedine Zidane after his hat-trick in the 4-2 win over Bayern Munich in the Champions League last eight. Replays showing at least one of the goals was offside didn't puncture his happiness. "I have to say, I'm filled with unbelievable rage for the first time today".

"As for my limits, I always try to play well, and I'm fortunate enough to have scored three really important goals (on Tuesday) and I'm over the moon (about my record)".

"Perhaps the fans won't boo him any more, but this is the Bernabeu and it can happen from time to time and he knows that", said the former France captain.

"The dressing room is very sad, very angry. It was an unfortunate, undeserved and bitter defeat".

His triple took his UEFA Champions League tally to an incredible 100 goals - a milestone no other player has achieved in the competition's history.

"A year of hard work down the drain".
