Ancelotti blames poor refereeing for Champions League defeat

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.

However, the Argentine is unlikely to have many more opportunities to add to that tally this season after Barcelona were thrashed 3-0 by Juventus in the first leg of their quarterfinal tie.

"We had thought of everything going into this game - except the referee", Carlo Ancelotti said in press conference.

A calf problem kept Gareth Bale on the sidelines, meaning that Isco joined Ronaldo and Karim Benzema in the final third for Real Madrid, while it was again Nacho alongside Sergio Ramos in central defence.

During Tuesday's 4-2 Real Madrid win, police with riot gear including masks, body armor and batons were seen entering the away supports section in Madrid and clashing with Bayern fans. Spanish clubs have won the European competition the last three seasons. "We all know that".

Which is why Bayern Munich left Madrid understandably furious with referee Viktor Kassai and his team of assistants after being unfairly knocked out of the Champions League in the quarterfinals on Tuesday.

Real boss Zidane said: "We played 120 minutes and in the end some players have finished a bit worse for wear".

Those involved in the bidding process say the team's price tag could go from $800 million to $1.6 billion. In its most recent valuation in 2016, Forbes estimated the franchise is now worth $675 million.

Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal's harsh 84th-minute dismissal was the first pivotal moment of a thrilling game, and then Ronaldo was clearly standing in an offside position to score Madrid's second in extra time.

But Neville believes Ronaldo will successfully make the transition to becoming a poacher-style striker, who will still deliver goals at the expense of being an influential figure throughout a match.

Much like the first leg, Madrid weathered the early storm and had plenty of chances to go in front before half time.

Real fans might not appreciate Ronaldo like they should, but his teammates certainly do. Last year, it lost in a penalty shootout. "It shouldn't happen at this level".

"The team was courageous", Bayern defender Philipp Lahm said. "We are not a big team like that, but we are very competitive, that's for sure. But now I'm feeling good and the team has been playing really well, that's what's important".

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.
