Cristiano Ronaldo: People who love me never have any doubts

"That is how ambitious he is".

Real Madrid has heavily dominated the 10-men Bayern Munich but the Manuel Neuer denied any casualty after the second goal.

But the reality of this Real Madrid team is that they've always been about seizing the moment more than dominating games. The team also had a goal by Sergio Ramos disallowed for offside not long before the final whistle.

"We showed the willingness to get a good result after the first half and if we had gone in at 2-0, it may have been a different match", said Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

After being sent off in the first leg, Javi Martinez is suspended, while Jerome Boateng is out with an adductor problem.

"We didn't have so much possession and we were missing our usual self-assurance".

"We controlled it in the first half, but didn't make the most of our chances".

"[Manuel] Neuer was good, he made a few saves".

The pivotal moment of the game was Arturo Vidal's missed penalty according to Ronaldo. Vidal then missed a penalty kick late in the first half.

Ronaldo had faced criticism after struggling to find his best form in recent weeks, but the 32-year-old's two goals took him onto 100 in European club competition, and he has refused to recognise his critics. "Hopefully Real Madrid win and we get through to the semi-finals".

He, however, said Bayern still has the chance of progressing ahead of Real Madrid.

"They were unique because we were losing and I was very happy because I helped Real win. Not even had we scored another goal here would that have put the tie beyond them". Dembele pulled one back for Dortmund before Mbappe scored his second to regain the two goal lead.

Zidane did not say whether he will rest Ronaldo for the team's away game at relegation-threatened Sporting Gijon tomorrow in the Spanish league.

Atletico played wel l Wednesday and should have done better than the narrow 1-0 victory, but the players and coach Diego Simeone were celebrating the advantage they will be carrying into the return match on Tuesday.

Four-time world player of the year Ronaldo then slotted in the victor between goalkeeper Manuel Neuer's legs for the victor 13 minutes from time.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti, though, is determined to remain positive as he prepares to return to the Bernabeu for the first time since he left the Madrid club in 2015.
