Real Madrid came from behind to beat 10-man Bayern Munich 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.
Arturo Vidal sent Bayern ahead in the 25th minute of the contest, but the Chilean missed a penalty on the stroke of the interval, before Cristiano Ronaldo’s double in the second period turned the last-eight tie around.
Ronaldo’s brace in Germany moved him onto 100 European club goals, and has placed Los Blancos in a commanding position ahead of the return match at the Bernabeu next week.
Leicester City suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Atletico Madrid thanks to a controversial penalty from Antoine Griezmann .
The Premier League side battled gamely at the Vicente Calderon, but they were denied a positive scoreline after Griezmann netted from 12 yards after Marc Albrighton was adjudged to have committed a foul inside the box, with replays suggesting that it took place just outside.
The referee’s error was harsh on Leicester but they will take belief from being able to restrict last season’s runners-up to just the one goal at a ground where they are so formidable.
