'Referee Had A Bad Game', Bayern Rages After Loss To Real Madrid
It's a shame: Robben Winger Arjen Robben said, "it's such a shame that such a super game, such a top game, is decided by one man with a whistle".
The Portuguese star was narrowly offside two times in extra time as he set Real on course to a 6-3 aggregate victory while Bayern were also left fuming after Arturo Vidal was wrongly given a second yellow card for a clean tackle.
The hat trick made him the first player to score 100 Champions League goals.
In a controversial, bad-tempered clash, Arturo Vidal was sent off for Bayern, who forced extra-time in Madrid after Robert Lewandowski converted a penalty and Sergio Ramos scored an own goal to make it 2-1 after 90 minutes.
Even Gerard Piqué wanted to speak about the game and the referee and he tweeted the following from his Twitter account.
Neuer will not need to undergo surgery but will play no further part as Bayern look to secure a fifth successive Bundesliga title, with the club also in the hunt for back-to-back German cups.
Ronaldo celebrated his first goal - a thumping header from a Casemiro cross - by putting a finger to his lips and turning towards the stands.
Ancelotti, who left Real after two seasons in 2015 having won the Champions League in the previous campaign, felt the Germans had done themselves proud despite the final result. "I always give my best, I work and I help Real Madrid". It's not easy to score six goals against Bayern and we deserved it. "I have to say, I'm filled with unbelievable rage for the first time today".
"We had thought of everything going into this game - except the referee", Carlo Ancelotti said in press conference.
"The dressing room is very sad, very angry".
"Meanwhile, Barcelona defender Gerard Pique - who has often claimed referees favour Real - tweeted "." following a string of decisions which went the way of the Madrid club. "It was an unfortunate, undeserved and bitter defeat". You can not just go home and say "things like this happen" after what happened here.
"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.
