Ronaldo in a league of his own - Zidane

  • Bayern's Arturo Vidal gestures after being shown a red card

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, centre, celebrates after scoring as Bayern players react. "The referee put us out of the Champions League".

Cristiano Ronaldo is "verging on ridiculous" after reaching a Champions League record of 100 goals, according to his former Manchester United team-mate Michael Carrick.

'In the game today I think we could have won and played the next round but the referee made a lot of errors, ' Lewandowski said after the game.

The penalty that was awarded to Bayern, when Robben went down under Casemiro's challenge, was not clear-cut, and two Bayern players were offside as Madrid captain Sergio Ramos scored an own goal in the 78th.

Carlo Ancelotti's Bayern are closing in on a fifth successive Bundesliga title.

Thursday's confirmation means that in addition to missing the rest of Bayern's league games, Neuer will be unavailable for the German Cup semi-final against Borussia Dortmund next week.

Their joint retirements signal the end of an era at Bayern, with time also running out for veteran wingers Franck Ribery, 34, and Arjen Robben, 33, who both have contracts until June 2018.

While we were tempted to pick Gianluigi Buffon for keeping not one but two clean sheets against mighty Barcelona, the truth is that he was helped by the defence and was hardly called into action as much as Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer was against Real Madrid.

However, Martin Schmidt's side are 15th, only avoiding the relegation places on goal difference, although they broke a five-match losing streak with a 1-0 win home to Hertha Berlin last weekend.

For the third time in four seasons, both Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have made it to Champions League semifinals. "We have been shafted in the truest sense of the word", Rummenigge said in quotes reported by The Times.
