Spanish giants Real Madrid ensured there were no surprises in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter final clash against Wolfsburg as the Germans toured Spain and left with a 3 – 0 beating on Tuesday 12 April, orchestrated by Portuguese international Cristiano Ronaldo who netted all the goals.
Real Madrid knew anything short of a 2 – 0 win the clash would have spelt doom for them and went on the rampage very early launching attacks from the onset and within the first six minutes had already won a corner, had an offside and hit the wood work.
Sergio Ramos went close on the fifth minute of the game with a strong header off Toni Kroos’ corner kick delivery but his attempt bounced back off the post.
Real Madrid’s early pressure paid off on the quarter hour mark with Cristiano Ronaldo getting the opener after latching onto a rebound to send home a right footed shot.
No sooner had the visitors recovered than they conceded a corner and from it Kroos floated in a cross that was met by Ronaldo on the 16th minute to power home, seeing Wolfsburg concede a second goal in two minutes.
Luiz Gustavo managed one attempt as Wolfsburg struggled to impose themselves in the match but it was too feeble for the Real Madrid shot stopper and moments later the Germans suffered a big blow with Julien Draxler going off injured to be replaced by Kruse.
Midway through the second half the Germans once again made a forced change with the injured Bruno Henrique giving up his place for Cagliuri.
Cristiano Ronaldo completed his hat trick on the 77th minute, netting with a free kick after Luiz Gustavo had fouled Luka Modric and after the first leg shocker, the ten – time champions will be watching out for their opponents in the semi finals.
