However, Zidane walked away as a happy man as Cristiano Ronaldo’s hat-trick powered Real Madrid to a 3-0 win over Wolfsburg to send the Spanish football giants to the Champions League semi-finals for the sixth straight year.
After losing 0-2 to the upstart German club in last week’s quarter-final first leg at Wolfsburg’s Volkswagen Arena, the Blancos on Tuesday took the field at the Santiago Bernabeu knowing that they had 90 minutes to preserve their hopes of winning a trophy this season, reports Efe.
The 10-time Champions League winners needed a goal in the first third of the match to make a comeback feasible, but an impatient Ronaldo scored in the 16th minute on Dani Carvajal’s cross. The two combined again seconds later only for the Portuguese superstar’s shot to bounce off a defender to set up a corner.
Toni Kroos delivered and Ronaldo headed the ball into the net to make it 2-0 on the night and 2-2 on aggregate at the 17-minute mark amid euphoria in the stands at the Bernabeu. Real came back from the half-time break recharged, returning to the pace of the opening minutes, though the vital third goal was slow in coming.
With just 13 minutes in regulation, it was Ronaldo to the rescue, completing the triple with a free-kick that eluded Bengaglio. (With Inputs from IANS).
