Also, two of Ronaldo's goals appeared to be offside in extra time at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Portuguese star singled out the Bernabeu crowd after becoming the first player in Champions League history to score 100 goals in the competition in Madrid's 4-2 win.

But despite having the momentum, they were at the distinct disadvantage of having to play extra-time with 10 men, and eventually crumbled to Madrid's might.

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. We scored two goals. I spoke to [Madrid coach Zinedine] Zidane after the game and he agreed with me that the refereeing performance was negative.

Luka Modric hailed Real Madrid's supporters after Tuesday's Champions League win at home to Bayern Munich as he called for the same atmosphere in the upcoming Clasico against Barcelona.

Lewandowski, who had missed the first leg because of a right shoulder injury, calmly scored from the spot with a right-foot shot, sending Keylor Navas the wrong way.

The Gamecocks were down as many as 14 in the second half, but responded with 14 straight points to tie it at 65. South Carolina, meanwhile, enters its first Final Four having never been close to this deep a run.


Lewandowski scored first via penalty in the 53rd minute, after Casemiro fouled Arjen Robben in the Madrid box.

Bayern probed for an early breakthrough, with a disciplined Real Madrid sitting deep to keep Bayern at bay.

"He scored three goals and the fans will be grateful for what Cristiano has done".

"We don't know. The important thing is to not make a mistake".

However, Real's celebrations were very short-lived as just a minute later the ball ricocheted around their box and Ramos turned into his own net.

Ronaldo put Madrid back in control when he chested down a pass by Ramos and fired a left-foot shot that went underneath Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the 105th minute.
