Road To Cardiff: Madrid’s In, Who Is Next?
By Adenike Olusiku
From zeros goals in the last six champions league game to to five in his last two matches and new record of a hundred champions league goals Ronaldo shows he is anything but finished.
In eight years Cristiano Ronaldo has broken every record there is at Madrid and every time you think he is done and you underrate him boom! He does it again, leaving the football world in adoration of his greatness.
Lewandowski opened the scoring of the tie after arjen robben was fouled by Casemiro in the box, then Cristiano scored an equalizer meaning Bayern would need to score a goal more to take the match into extra time, and that they did minutes into Ronaldo goal with a clumsy Ramos own goal.
Arturo Vidal received his marching orders after his foul on Marco Asensio deep into normal time which worsened Bayern chances, Madrid where back ahead when Ronaldo scored for what seems to be from an offside position,he would later complete his hat trick with Asensio also adding fuel to fire.
Leicester City’s fairytale Champions League run also came to an end but they didn’t go down without a fight. Atletico Madrid opened the scoring through Saul header on 26 minute to give a crucial away goal but Jamie Vardy gave Leicester a life line at the 60th minute mark.
They came close to adding to their tally through Ndidi and substitute Ulloa but fell short as the game ending 1-1 draw with Atletico advancing to the next round on away goals.
