Arturo Vidal has slammed Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai after Bayern Munich's 4-2 (6-3 on aggregate) defeat to Real Madrid in the quarter-final of the Champions League on Tuesday night.
The goal gave Real Madrid the ultimate advantage, as they managed to find two more goals; Ronaldo completed his hat-trick and Marco Asensio netted one as well.
Ronaldo's bullet diving header in the 76th minute then looked to have sent Real through, but a weird own goal from captain Sergio Ramos moments later levelled things up at 3-3 overall.
In an exciting match that had fans glued to the screens with no time to blink, Ronaldo came to the rescue of the Spanish leaders to beat Bayern Munich 4-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Vidal was fortunate not to have been shown his second yellow card earlier, in the 48th minute, for a challenge on Casemiro.
"There are decisions that have penalised us a lot", said Ancelotti.
The 2014 Spanish champion, Atletico is third in this year's Spanish league, 10 points behind leader Madrid, which is trying to win the competition for the first time since 2012. "I don't need to watch a video because you could see that Vidal got the ball".
Carlo Ancelotti warned "it's time for VAR, because you can't decide a Champions League semi-final spot like this" after Bayern Munich's controversial loss to Real Madrid.
Madrid and Atletico made it all the way to the final in 2014 and 2016, with Madrid coming out on top both times.
"When we led 2-1 they were scared".
"I don't know", Zidane said when asked about VAR after the match.
"After we went 2-1 up and with 11 players, we were in great mental shape and then we had the wind taken out of our sails", he said.
"In the first leg, Bayern were wrongly awarded a penalty".
Bayern's statement did not say how long the Germany global would be out for, but he will in all likelihood not play again this season. "It hurts to go out in extra time, but we were a man down for over an hour across the tie. We deserved to go through". Arjen Robben lashed the rebound into the side-netting.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick, adding to his double in Munich, with Marcelo setting up the forward's third with a superb solo run through the Bayern defence.
