Ronaldo: 'Great honour' to set goals record

With the second leg to come next week, Lewandowski feels he has recovered from a shoulder problem and should be fit to feature against Los Blancos.

Ronaldo was presented with a commemorative shirt by club president Florentino Perez after setting the latest record in his illustrious career. "Hopefully there'll be another double at the [Santiago] Bernabeu".

Ronaldo's last Champions League goal prior to Wednesday's game-winning display came against Borussia Dortmund all the way back in September, but he silenced many of his critics against one of the tournament's favourites in midweek. "But we leave with a sour taste because we could have scored more goals". "But after they missed the penalty, we knew that the team would be lifted and the second half was ours".

"In the last few years I got to the end of the season at the limit and with small injuries, but I have worked hard with our fitness coach to be in the right shape for the final two months".

"Meanwhile Germany global Thomas Muller has urged his colleagues to believe they can recover from a one-goal deficit to send Real packing out of the competition".

Bayern Munich's Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal (2R) celebrates with teammates scoring during the UEFA Champions League 1st leg quarter-final football match FC Bayern Munich v Real Madrid in Munich, southen Germany on April 12, 2017.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was delighted with his brace in victory at Champions League opponents Bayern Munich. "The results are going our way and I'm happy because of that". If he'd scored, Bayern would have lead 2-0.

The Bayern defensive midfielder had not long picked up a caution for a foul on Ronaldo when the Portugal forward went to dash clear again. If Madrid plays as well as this game especially on the defensive side they will be able to win their next game against Bayern but nothing is for sure.

Madrid faces Sporting Gijon in La Liga on Saturday before hosting Bayern and Barcelona in what could prove to be a crucial week of its season.

"You never decide a tie like this in the first-leg, but we created our chances and we could have scored more goals", said Zidane. Barcelona is coming off disappointing losses at Malaga in the Spanish league and at Juventus in the Champions League.
