Cristiano Ronaldo

Real Madrid and Manchester City are the first semifinalists of the current edition of Champions League.

The match at Bernabéu ended 3-0, a hat-trick of Cristiano Ronaldo. Madrid leveled the tie quickly. In fact it took them 17 minutes to score two goals, both by Cristiano Ronaldo (17th and 15th minute). However, after putting the 2-2 overall, the team relaxed and Wolfsburg had some occasions.

At the beginning of the second half, Real Madrid started to attack strongly. Ramos sent a ball to the post in the 66th minute (as he had done in the 6th of the first half). Wolfsburg was much closed and the 3rd, also by Cristiano, came through a free kick in the 76th minute. The ball passed in between two players of the wall, which confused the goalkeeper. Thus, the hat-trick of Portuguese Madrid allowed them to go to the next round.

Manchester City, the other semifinalist (3-2 overall against PSG)

The other semifinalist of the Champions League is Manchester City. The match against PSG ended 1-0, 3-2 on aggregate. The only goal of the match was scored by De Bryune at the 76th minute.

The match was marked by two goals of PSG canceled. The first one, on Lucas Moura in the 54th minute (offside of Maxwell in the moment of the assist) and the second on Ibra in the 86th minute, also due to offside.
