Real Madrid win at Bayern, Griezmann gives Atletico slender lead


[4/12/2017 4:23:41 PM]

AMMONNEWS - Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 100 European goals as Real Madrid defeated Bayern Munich 2-1 in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Wednesday.

Chile international Arturo Vidal headed Bayern into a 26th-minute lead but then missed a penalty on the stroke of half-time. Ronaldo levelled just after the interval with his 99th European goal and went to three figures after 77 minutes.

Elsewhere, Antoine Griezmann scored a first-half penalty as Atletico Madrid beat Leicester City 1-0 at home in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final first leg.

Griezmann won a 28th-minute penalty after he was barged to the ground by Marc Albrighton, and the France international converted from the spot to give Atletico a slim advantage ahead of next Tuesday’s return.

At 1-1, Real Madrid would have had the slightest of edges in the standout tie of the quarter-finals.

Ronaldo’s second goal put the Spanish side in control against Bayern Munich going into the second leg in Madrid. It was also the Portuguese star’s 100th goal in UEFA club competitions.

Is he seriously only 18? Kylian Mbappe continues to live up to the hype, and his second goal against Dortmund was an absolutely stunning finish. Monaco will fancy their chances of reaching the last four after taking a 3-2 lead into their home leg.
