Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score one hundred goals in the Champions League when he netted a hat trick against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. He then used the occasion to ask for more respect from fans.
Ronaldo had cut an isolated figure up front for long periods, and was jeered by some home fans for not working hard enough off the ball. At one point he put his finger to his lips, appearing to attempt to shush the Bernabeu.
But they were all cheering his name at the end after he knocked home the goals that put Madrid through to the semifinals with a four-two win on the night, six-three on aggregate.
The Portugal captain is now ahead of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, who has ninety-four goals. Real Madrid moved through to the semifinals with a four-two win on the night, six-three on aggregate.
