Real Madrid on Thursday defeated Bayern Munich 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

Real Madrid punished Bayern's wastefulness after the restart as Christian Ronaldo restored parity after volleying home a cross from Daniel Carvajal with two minutes into the second half.

If Vidal had scored the penalty, it would have been a different game. "The team reacted very well, it is not easy to play here, against a very hard team. We'll have to see if the one goal lead is enough". "He always plays best on the wing and before the game we thought that he has to has be on the move, switching positions with Bale and Benzema".

"We had everything under control in the first half, but didn't use the room consistently", said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.

Ronaldo then hit the victor as substitute Marco Asensio, on for Bale, put in a low pass for Ronaldo to tap the ball home between Neuer's legs.

The Portuguese, who scored his third and fourth goal of this season's UEFA Champions League campaign on the night, became the first player to net 100 goals in European competition.

Bayern played the last half an hour a man down after centre-back Javi Martinez was sent off for two fouls on Ronaldo within three minutes.

"It's not easy to play here against a really hard team and, losing 1-0 in the first half, we had good feelings about the second". "With our second half, playing very well, keeping the ball from the opponent and the chances we had, it is clear that another goal would have been better". He said he found it hard to believe they could stage another remarkable comeback in the second leg as they did against Paris St Germain in the previous round.

Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer made a number of superb stops to deny Los Blancos from increasing their lead and Ronaldo was full of praise for the German: "I think if Neuer had not been on such form we would have scored more goals". We showed patience and we showed the willingness to get the right result.

Antoine Griezmann converted a first-half penalty kick to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win over Leicester in their first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday, keeping the Spanish club on track to make it to the final for a second straight season. The second half is hard to judge.

"At half-time he was feeling something and, as always we did not want to take any risks", Zidane said.

"With patience we got the equaliser at the start of the second half, and from there it was another game".
