Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has come down heavily on the standard of refereeing in the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid, saying such poor standards of officiating should never happen at this level.

"We had thought of everything going into this game -- except the referee," Ancelotti was quoted as saying by the BBC on Wednesday. "You can't decide a semi-final spot like this. It shouldn't happen at this level."

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.

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane commented on Friday that he thinks Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich, currently under the guidance of former Spanish capital club coach Carlo Ancelotti, is evenly balanced.

The tie, which not only pits Madrid against a historic rival, sees them take on former coach Ancelotti, who led the Spanish side to their tenth European crown. The draw has given Madrid a slight advantage in that they play the first game in Munich with the return leg in front of their fans in the Santiago Bernabeu.
