Real Madrid 3-0 Wolfsburg (agg. 3-2)
Posted on: April 12, 2016, 09:06:33 PM
A brilliant hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo saved Real Madrid's Champions League campaign, as the Spaniards battled back to down Wolfsburg 3-0 and progress to the semi-finals.

Madrid appeared to have a sizeable task in front of them having lost the first leg in Germany 2-0 but were rescued in stunning fashion as Ronaldo continued his magnificent goalscoring form in the Champions League.

The former Manchester United forward netted two goals in the space of 90 seconds to bring Madrid level in the tie, before completing his treble and the turnaround with 13 minutes remaining.

Ronaldo halved the aggregate deficit with a composed 15th-minute finish and just one minute and 26 seconds later Madrid were all square as he headed home Toni Kroos' corner.

Wolfsburg did not lie down following that devastating spell and threatened on multiple occasions to turn the tie back in their favour.

But Ronaldo refused to be denied and capped a stunning individual performance in fitting fashion with a sublime free-kick that marked his 16th Champions League goal of the season and kept Madrid's hopes of an 11th European crown very much alive.
