Cristiano Ronaldo had been stuck on 98 European club competition goals from September even as Real Madrid progressed through the UEFA Champions League, until he scored twice to chalk up his century in Wednesday's 2-1 win at Bayern München. "To be able to reach this mark is an honor and against a team like Bayern it is better still", Ronaldo, who scored both goals, told BeIN Sport Spain. The return match against Bayern is on Tuesday.

Real pressed home the numerical advantage but Zidane warned the slender lead may not be enough.

Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored 97 of his European goals in the UCL, with another in the qualifiers and two in the European Super Cup.

Ancelotti says the Germans still have a fighting chance in Madrid.

"We don't have a big chance, but we still have a chance - we're still alive", said Ancelotti. Neuer might have done better for the second goal as Ronaldo's toe poke squirmed agonisingly through his fingers, but he nearly single-handedly kept Bayern in the tie with at least eight top class saves from the "BBC".

Keylor Navas: He looked a bit insecure in the match, in fact we think he could have saved Bayern Munich first goal despite the good header of Arturo Vidal.

Bale underwent surgery on his right ankle at the end of November, sidelining him until he made a return as a substitute against Espanyol on February 18. Germany striker Thomas Mueller says the Bavarians have the necessary belief.

The second leg of Madrid's Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich takes place just three days later, before Barcelona visit Santiago Bernabeu for El Clasico next Sunday. Juventus' defense is one of the best in the world and it might not be the same story as the historical 6-1 victory over PSG in the return leg.

"With patience and by winning the ball from our opponents, the second half was very good".

"The history of the club, the way we know that we have to give everything".

"You have to pick your chin up, put the extra percent on it, and put in an outstanding performance in Madrid", he said.

We only have to go back to last year's semifinals against Atletico Madrid for Bayern paying the penalty for spot-kick profligacy. "Hopefully Real Madrid win and reach the semifinals", he said.

"It's important to finish the game with 11 men", said Neuer, on his first game back after foot surgery.

Bale: We saw the Welshman all the first part was more anxious about the physical discomfort he could have, stretching and throwing his hand to the thigh, than the game.
