Real Madrid booked their place in the semi-finals of the Champions League after a controversial 4-2 win at home against Bayern Munich in the return leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie to see them qualify 6-3 on aggregate.

Defending a 2-1 lead from the first half, Madrid were taken into extra time by the German club, who had midfielder Arturo Vidal unjustly sent off in the closing minutes of normal time, while Madrid's midfielder Casemiro could have seen his second yellow card of the night on two separate occasions, only to be pardoned by the referee both times.

Real Madrid snatched a 2-1 comeback win after Christiano Ronaldo scored twice to beat 10-man Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final. Bayern were unable to defend their opener as Real turned up in the second half with two goals from Ronaldo on Wednesday evening. The visitors from Madrid ensured the first promising chance of the game when Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer had to tip Karim Benzema's header on to the bar with 18 minutes played.

Nevertheless, the opening goal of the match was scored at the other end of the pitch as Arturo Vidal headed home a corner kick from Thiago Alcantara to break the deadlock seven minutes later. Bayern should have doubled the lead before the break but Arturo Vidal was unable to convert a penalty in the dying minutes of the first half.
