#UCL: Ronaldo scores hat-trick as Madrid beat Bayern | Leicester City’s fairytale run ends

Cristiano Ronaldo made history Tuesday as he became the first player in history to score a hundred goals in the UEFA Champions League.

The World Best achieved the feat by scoring a hat-trick for Real Madrid against Bayern Munich in the competition’s second leg quarter-final tie between both sides.

Bayern drew first blood through a Robert Lewandowski penalty in the 53rd minute. Ronaldo equalised for Madrid in the 73rd minute with his first goal of the night.

Bayern made it two in the 84th minute when Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos slotted into his own goal.

As the game was set to go into extra time based on aggregates, Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal was sent off for a second bookable offence.

In extra time Ronaldo scored his second and third in the 105th and 110th minute respectively.

Substitute Marco Asensio put the tie to rest with Madrid’s fourth on the night in the 112th minute.

Madrid went through to the semis 6-3 on aggregate with Ronaldo scoring five over both legs.

English Champions, Leicester City have been knocked out of the UEFA Champions League.

Leicester played a 1-1 draw with Spanish side Atletico Madrid on Tuesday at The King Power Stadium to lose 2-1 on aggregate.

Atletico took the lead on the night in the 26th minute through Saul Niguez. Jamie Vardy pulled one back for The Foxes in the 61st minute.

Leicester needed to score two more goals to qualify for the semi-finals but were held by Diego Simeone’s men.

Atletico won the first leg at the Vincente Calderon via a penalty from Antoine Griezmann.

Tonight’s victory means that Atletico has qualified for the semi-finals of the competition three times in the last four years.

Leicester’s defeat has brought to an end a remarkable campaign by the English side who are playing in the competition for the first time in their history.
