Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti: "It will be hard in 90 minutes in Madrid but we are still alive".

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo celebrates scoring his side's first goal during the Champions League quarterfinal first leg soccer match between FC Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, in Munich, Germany, Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

That being said, the tension told when Marco Asensio, on as a substitute for Gareth Bale, clipped a delightful ball into Ronaldo's path on the 77th minute, and the forward got to the ball first to clip in the victor. And that is without talking about all the other goals he has scored!

"We were the best team in the second half and it could have been two or three nil up", the goalie said. Two minutes after the break, Ronaldo delivered a right-footed shot from the center of the box to level the match off a solid cross from Daniel Carvajal.

Bayern's Arturo Vidal opened the scoring and missed a penalty before Ronaldo volleyed the equalizer in the 47th minute and scored the victor 13 minutes from time when he was picked out by Marco Asenio and finished calmly.

However the score could have been well different if Vidal would not have missed the penalty at the last minute before the break when Bayern led 1-0. a 2-0 lead going into the second half would have been much different.

He had not scored in the Champions League in 659 minutes before Wednesday night, last finding the net in a 2-2 group stage draw with Borussia Dortmund in September a year ago.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer produced a string of saves and believes his team can book a sixth straight semi-final berth.

The second leg of Madrid's Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich takes place just three days later, before Barcelona visit Santiago Bernabeu for El Clasico next Sunday.

"We know that it's a very important game and we're going to have to produce a great performance if we're to put any points on the board".

After cutting a frustrated figure following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Madrid rivals Atletico, Cristiano Ronaldo was back in top form to help drive Real on to victory with a second-half brace.

Zidane did not say whether he will rest Ronaldo for the team's away game at relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon tomorrow in the Spanish league.

"We'll have to see what his injury is", Zidane said. We now have six days until the second leg. With Barca in big trouble in their tie against Juve, Los Blancos are as short as 3.0 to become the first side ever to retain the Champions League.
