Centurion and Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo thankful after 100th European goal

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, front, celebrates after scoring his side's 2nd goal during the Champions League quarterfinal first leg soccer match between FC Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, in Munich, Germany, Wednesday, April 12, 2017.

"It is not easy to play here, Bayern have great players and are a great team, but we still needed to play well in the second half".

Forward Ronaldo said it was a moment to savour.

"I'm very happy. I want to thank Real Madrid for the opportunity to build a wonderful career at this club, and to my teammates as well".

Arturo Vidal's thumping header steered manager Carlo Ancelotti's side into the lead before Ronaldo equalised early in the second half and added a late victor after Javi Martinez's 60th-minute sending off.

Ronaldo would answer back just two minutes into the second half, with the 32-year-old volleying home a low cross from Carvajal, before Bayern's night got worse when Javi Martinez was sent off for two bookable offences.

Ronaldo reached his milestone by slotting home the victor 13 minutes from time.

Bayern was without club top-scorer Robert Lewandowski after he failed to recover from a knock to his right shoulder.

A Farmington, New Hampshire, songwriter even posted a music video on YouTube called, " I'm Going Crazy Waiting (For A Giraffe )". According to the Associated Press , a live stream of April's enclosure has been streaming since February.

"We had the game under control in the first-half, but we losed our efficiency after the break". So let's see if we can get over it.

"Even another goal would not have made that much difference". We're backing Under 2.5 Goals at 2.6.

Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale will miss the game against Bayern Munich and possibly Barcelona after picking up a knock to his calf - as reported by Marca.

It, matter of factly, reported that Ronaldo scored two goals to beat Bayern Munich, but the seemingly pleased anchor said, it was for Barcelona. Madrid went on to win the title with Carlo Ancelotti, the current Bayern coach, in charge at the time.

Leicester will welcome Atletico Madrid to the King Power in the second leg knowing an improved performance is needed to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

"Their goalkeeper saved lots of chances".

"We played 11 against 10 for the last 30 minutes and had a lot of possession which changed the match and the result".

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos echoed Zidane's sentiments that nothing is decided.
