Champions League Highlights Real Madrid vs Wolfsburg | Man City vs PSG
There were two goalscoring UEFA Champions League quarter-final heroes on Tuesday night, and both match-winners deserve the plaudits that come their way.
Heres the highlights for Real Madrid vs Wolfsburg –
Cristiano Ronaldo was left to marvel in his own brilliance after scoring a sensational hat-trick to guide Real Madrid to a famous comeback win. “A perfect, magical night.”
“Goals are in my DNA” beamed Cristiano Ronaldo and who can argue? The 31-year-old reckoned he had just about a “perfect, magical night” as he scored a stunning hat-trick to complete a famous ‘remontada’ (comeback) as Real Madrid beat Wolfsburg 3-2 on aggregate.
This treble was his 37th hat-trick for the Spanish outfit and in turn he became the first player to net three hat-tricks in one UEFA Champions League season. “It’s not bad, is it?” he joked with the media after the game.
Heres the highlights for Man City vs Paris Saint-Germain –
“Our main man from Belgium settled it,” said Joe Hart of Manchester City match-winner Kevin De Bruyne, an unassuming player who lets his football do the talking. And how!
Cristiano Ronaldo is a once-in-a-generation talent, but what Kevin De Bruyne does for Manchester City is often overlooked. De Bruyne is unlikely to be caught in a dressing-room snap on social media showing off his six-pack in his underwear, but like Ronaldo he has the ability to decide a game with a moment of magic. With 76 minutes gone against Paris Saint-Germain, the Belgian playmaker did just that; he gathered the ball outside the area with seemingly no shot on and curled in a goal that ensured City won 1-0, and 3-2 on aggregate, to reach a first UEFA Champions League semi-final.
