Bayern complains to UEFA about Spanish police

20 April, 2017, 11:40 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has poured encomiums on history breaker and maker, Cristiano Ronaldo, in the wake of his performance in last night's champions league quarter-final against Bayern Munich. Rage, because we were swindled.

Not only did the Hungarian official send-off Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal in controversial manner, but he also allowed both of Cristiano Ronaldo's extra-time goals to stand, despite more than a hint of offside in both.

He hadn't been scoring a lot of goals and was even jeered at times by Real Madrid fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

He followed up the snapshots of the decisions with another Instagram post in his story that said: "One year of hard work, thank you referee, bravo".

"The only thing I ask is that they don't boo me because I give my best in every game", Ronaldo told Spanish TV station Antena 3.

According to reports in Spain, police were forced to remove three Bayern Munich players from the referee's dressing room following their tempestuous exit. "He was very wrong and that has knocked us out of Europe". But if you blame the team today you've seen the wrong match.

Winger Arjen Robben said: "It's such a shame that such a super game, such a top game, is decided by one man with a whistle".

In extra time, we played with 10 men against 14 [including the referee and his two assistants].

Robert Lewandowski was also incorrectly pulled back for offside when Boateng sent a long ball through for what would have been a good chance for Bayern. Vidal was fortunate not to have been shown his second yellow card earlier, in the 48th minute, for a challenge on Casemiro.

Bayern Munich accused Spanish police of "violent attacks" on their supporters during the Champions League defeat at Real Madrid and filed a complaint with UEFA on Wednesday.

Ancelotti made the case for video technology immediately after the game, saying the mistakes were unacceptable for the Champions League quarterfinals. No time to celebrate, as Bayern will take the lead on an own goal just 90 seconds after the equalizer. In Tuesday's second leg alone, Madrid had 12 attempts on target, compared to two for the visitors.
