The 32-year-old first found the net during Manchester United's 3-0 win over Hungarian outfit Debrecen in a Champions League qualifier in August 2005, with Wayne Rooney and Ruud van Nistelrooy also on the scoresheet that night. Everyone that watches soccer was motivated to see the game and it did not disappoint in a fan's perspective. With patience and by winning the ball from our opponents, the second half was very good.
"We suffered here but all-in-all it's not easy to play here".
Real top the standings on 72 points from 30 games, while Barcelona have 69 from 31.
Madrid has gone a Spanish record 53 straight games scoring at least one goal. They couldn't live with Bayern Munich, who went 1-0 up and should've had a second only for Arturo Vidal to put his penalty high into the stands. This was his first full training session since injuring his shoulder in the second half against Borussia Dortmund.
Ronaldo had been sitting on 98 European competition goals since September.
His goals helped give Real the upper hand ahead of next Tuesday's second leg.
But the reality of this Real Madrid team is that they've always been about seizing the moment more than dominating games.
"We're happy with the game we played".
It was Madrid's Taliman Cristiano Ronaldo again to the rescue.
Real Madrid are fully aware of the threat Lewandowski poses as in the 2012-13 campaign the Poland worldwide scored four goals while playing for Borussia Dortmund, knocking the Spaniards out of the tournament. "The team is playing well and so is Cristiano". Bayern Munich had many attacking options even without Robert Lewandowski and Madrid excelled defensively. Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were Bayern most risky players.
Zidane said he wasn't sure if Bale would be ready to play the return leg of the quarterfinal against Bayern next week. Robben's left shot is very unsafe and letting him shoot is the worst you could do as a Bayern opponent.
Arjen Robben only shot twice on goal and they were all contested which made the shots, not threats.
The Portugal global was presented with a commemorative shirt by Real president Florentino Perez on Thursday to mark the accomplishment, and told the club's official website: "It's a great honour to reach 100 goals in Europe".
