Posted April 19, 2017

Faustino Asprilla labelled Real Madrid a "team of rats" after the Champions League titleholders were beneficiaries of some contentious decisions against Bayern Munich.

The 31-year-old was injured in extra time during the buildup to Cristiano Ronaldo's third goal as Bayern lost 6-3 on aggregate.

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo ticked off yet another major milestone on Tuesday as his side secured a dramatic extra-time win over Bayern Munich to advance to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

"We suffered a lot but got what we wanted", the midfielder said after the match. "In the end, over the two legs, we deserved to go through".

"The dressing room is very sad because we really wanted to go through but we have to keep improving and hope these things will not happen again".

Marcelo twice cleared off the line for Madrid and Jerome Boateng did the same for Bayern in a thrilling game, which was tilted in Madrid's favour by Arturo Vidal's dismissal for two yellow cards, the second of which was harsh.

After Robert Lewandowski had scored a 53rd minute penalty for Bayern, an own-goal by Madrid defender Sergio Ramos in the 78th had given the German side a 2-1 lead in regulation time, and sent the game into extra time.

Bayern were stunned when Vidal, left, was shown his second yellow card, in the 85th minute.

"In the big moments, Ronaldo always comes through", Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said.

Casemiro was harshly penalised when Arjen Robben tumbled inside the Madrid box, whilst Lewandowski was also offside in the build-up to Ramos's own goal.

"Cristiano answers on the pitch, and he scored three goals, five in two games, what else can I say", Zidane added.
