Bayern blasts referee after Champions League loss to Madrid

Scans on Wednesday evening revealed Neuer, 31, suffered a break to a metatarsal in his left foot in the second leg of Bayern's Champions League quarterfinal defeat to Real Madrid.

A celebrating Ronaldo also graced the front page of rival sports paper Marca with the headline: "Madrid rules Europe" as Atletico Madrid edged out Leicester City 2-1 on aggregate to reach the last four of the Champions League for the third time in four seasons.

The game was marred by a number of questionable refereeing decisions, though, as Kassai dismissed Arturo Vidal for what seemed like a fair challenge, before Cristiano Ronaldo scored two goals from what appeared to be offside positions.

However, Bayern's numerical disadvantage told after Vidal saw his second yellow card and Ronaldo made the most of an assistant referee's leniency to complete his hat trick. You could kill yourself.


Munich led 2-1 at the end of the 90 minutes to force the game to extra-time, but Vidal was dismissed on 84 minutes after picking up a second yellow card. But then the referee started with his show and with a man less it is very hard.

The Portugal captain is already Madrid's leading goalscorer and is also the all-time leading goalscorer in the Champions League with six goals more than Barcelona forward Lionel Messi. "You have the decisions that penalized us a lot, Arturo's card was not a card and then two goals for Cristiano were offside", Ancelotti said. "I always give my best, and even when I don't score I'm trying to help the team".

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

CRISTIANO RONALDO HAS called on Real Madrid fans to stop whistling him at the Santiago Bernabeu following his match-winning display against Bayern Munich.


The thought of some Madridistas booing one of the greatest players to have ever played the game is just ridiculous.

"I'm fortunate enough to have scored three really important goals", he said.

Bayern probed for an early breakthrough, with a disciplined Real Madrid sitting deep to keep Bayern at bay.
