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.

Victory seals a place in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals for the sixth season running and it is also the sixth successive campaign in which the No7 has passed 45 goals in all competitions.

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.

“It’s a great feeling,” De Bruyne said. “I needed to control the ball because I saw some players diving in. So I just took my shot and fortunately for us it went in.”
