UCL round-up: Madrid win at Bayern, Atletico beat Leicester

Sport360 staff 01:01 13/04/2017

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 100 European goals as Real Madrid defeated Bayern Munich 2-1 in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday.

Chile international Arturo Vidal headed Bayern into a 26th-minute lead but then missed a penalty on the stroke of half-time. Ronaldo levelled just after the interval with his 99th European goal and went to three figures after 77 minutes.

Elsewhere, Antoine Griezmann scored a first-half penalty as Atletico Madrid beat Leicester City 1-0 at home in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg.

Griezmann won a 28th-minute penalty after he was barged to the ground by Marc Albrighton, and the France international converted from the spot to give Atletico a slim advantage ahead of next Tuesday’s return.

MOMENT OF THE NIGHT

At 1-1, Real Madrid would have had the slightest of edges in the standout tie of the quarter-finals.

Ronaldo’s second goal put the Spanish side in control against Bayern Munich going into the second leg in Madrid. It was also the Portuguese star’s 100th goal in UEFA club competitions.

BEST GOAL

Is he seriously only 18? Kylian Mbappe continues to live up to the hype, and his second goal against Dortmund was an absolutely stunning finish. Monaco will fancy their chances of reaching the last four after taking a 3-2 lead into their home leg.

BEST STAT

PLAYER OF THE NIGHT

Kylian Mbappe. His brace had a similar impact as Cristiano Ronaldo’s – one-goal away wins for their teams – but Ronaldo is supposed to do that. Mbappe is 18 and yet has been one of the most influential players of the Champions League knockout stages.
