VIDEO Real Madrid Defeats Bayern Munich, 2-1: Highlights From 2017 Champions League Quarterfinals Match

Ronaldo, the four-time world player of the year, volleyed Real level at the Allianz Arena, then reached his milestone by slotting home the victor 13 minutes from time in the first-leg with the return on Tuesday in Madrid.

"Cristiano was unhappy because he couldn't score a third, that's how ambitious he is", Zidane said. "We're all content, because it's never easy to win at Bayern".

That being said, the tension told when Marco Asensio, on as a substitute for Gareth Bale, clipped a delightful ball into Ronaldo's path on the 77th minute, and the forward got to the ball first to clip in the victor.

"I wanted to reach this record".

The four-time world player of the year then slotted in the victor between goalkeeper Manuel Neuer's legs 13 minutes from time.

Zidane could have a headache ahead of the second leg with Bayern after Isco staked his claim, with Lucas Vasquez also able to play in Bale's position.

The goals were the 99th and 100th by Ronaldo in European club competition, giving him the milestone almost seven months after he had scored his last Champions League goal in a 2-2 group-stage draw at Borussia Dortmund.

Robert Lewandowski was back in Bayern Munich training on Sunday following the club's scoreless draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

"We had everything under control in the first half, but didn't use the room consistently", said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.

The visitors from Madrid ensured the first promising chance of the game when Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer had to tip Karim Benzema's header on the bar with 18 minutes played.

He said of the 24-year-old midfielder: 'He has made a great game, he gave the team victory with his second goal.

With Pepe and Raphael Varane already sidelined due to injuries they sustained earlier this month, Gareth Bale will also miss the all-important Bayern Munich semifinal 2 leg after suffering a knock to the soleus muscle of the calf.

Bayern should have been 2-0 up at the break, but Vidal sent his penalty well over the bar after Dani Carvajal was adjudged to have handled the ball. We got the equaliser at the start of the second half and that changed the complexion of the match.

With 13-minutes left in the game, Ronaldo stabbed the ball past Neuer to take his tally to 100 European goals and left Bayern Munich on the verge of elimination.

Conte back at Old Trafford and hoping to celebrate again
Chelsea's preparations for the game were affected by the loss of goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois with an ankle injury during the week. The Manchester rivals meet at City's Etihad Stadium on April 27. "We don't want that to happen a third time", Pogba told MUTV .

Ronaldo hailed the German's efforts in his post-match comments and added: "Neuer was very good, he made some saves".
