Ronaldo gets to landmark as Madrid win 2-1

Ronaldo gets to landmark as Madrid win 2-1

The French manager seemed a bit disappointed with the result they achieved today, despite of winning in a hard stadium as Allianz Arena: " We suffered a lot in the first half, but in the second half we played really good.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA competitions when he struck twice as holders Real Madrid came from behind to win 2-1 at Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday. He first opened his European goal-scoring account in Manchester United's 3-0 win over Hungarian side Debrecen on August 9, 2005.

Post match, he said "I don't know who doubts me, they must be in the minority". "I am very happy about that record and the fact he is so motivated to be on top. We scored, then Bayern had a man sent off and things suddenly became easier for us".

While Ronaldo and Benzema, along with goalkeeper Keylor Navas, will rest when Madrid visits Sporting Gijon, coach Zinedine Zidane said on Friday that an unidentified leg injury will keep Bale from playing.

It proved a costly miss as Ronaldo swept in an equaliser two minutes into the second half before Bayern's defensive midfielder Javi Martinez picked up two quick cautions to leave the home side a player down for the final half-hour.

But Madrid's first task is Sporting, who are five points adrift of safety in the battle to avoid relegation - a fight against the drop that makes Zidane wary.

Madrid may well have got two vital away goals at the Allianz Arena, but the tie clearly isn't over yet, with the decisive second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu to be played next Tuesday.

"There is still a return game to come, even with another goal tonight it would not have been over".

"We didn't have so much possession and we were missing our usual self-assurance". I'm glad of my team because we suffered a lot in the first half. Dembele pulled one back for Dortmund before Mbappe scored his second to regain the two goal lead.

Mbappe gave Monaco a 19th-minute lead shortly after Fabinho had missed a penalty for the visitors, and they went further ahead when Dortmund defender Sven Bender headed into his own net. With patience and by winning the ball from our opponents, the second half was very good.

Bale had to be replaced for the final half hour of Madrid's 2-1 win in Munich on Wednesday after aggravating an ankle injury that saw him miss almost three months earlier this season.

"Gareth felt something at half-time and I didn't want to take any risks, he didn't feel very well, we hope it's nothing major, nothing big", said Zidane.
