Champions League: Ronaldo sets new milestone as luckless Bayern Munich go out

But he preferred to focus on the match officials who played their part in Bayern's exit by allowing two off-side Real Madrid goals and sending Arturo Vidal off for a second bookable offence that was not even a foul.

Cristiano Ronaldo may have dominated the headlines on the pitch as his hat-trick fired the defending European champion to a 6-3 aggregate victory, yet the scenes in the stands at the Bernabeu provided an unfortunate sideshow.

In addition to that, Bayern had key midfielder Arturo Vidal sent off after he received a yellow card for what was a perfectly timed tackle.

Ronaldo's ton, scored in just 137 matches, includes 85 goals for Real and 15 for previous club Manchester United.

Bayern were left incensed, though, as Ronaldos second and third goals were clearly offside.

"I have to say, I'm filled with unbelievable rage for the first time today". In the first half we had a lot of chances, but failed to score and it's to be expected that we would have to dig deep in a game like this one.

"This robbery cannot go on in the Champions League".

Lewandowski, who missed the first leg with a shoulder problem, had put the Germans ahead on the night from the penalty spot to level the tie on aggregate following Real's 2-1 win in Munich, where Ronaldo scored twice.

But Bayern can take hope from the fact that they can still turn the season into a domestic success with two titles.

"I said after the first leg that I was preparing to reach the end of the season in good shape", Ronaldo said.

Bayern manager Carlo Ancelotti was furious, criticizing Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai after the game and asking for the introduction of video review technology.

"The Champions League was important for us but it's unfortunately over".

Four minutes into the second period of extra time he had Marcelo to thank for a brilliant run and unselfish pass that allowed the Portuguese the simplest of finishes to complete his hat-trick despite again being in an offside position.

Madrid boss and Ancelotti's former assistant Zinedine Zidane had a different version of events as both Bayern's goals also came about in controversial fashion.
