Photo Gallery – Real Madrid’s best captured moments of the match against Wolfsburg
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a cap trap to guide Real Madrid past Wolfsburg and into the semi-finals of the 2016 UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, as Los Blancos beat the Germans, 3-0, at the Santiago Bernabeu in the second leg of their tie and 3-2 on the total. Wolfsburg entered the match with a two-goal point of preference, yet a snappy prop from Ronaldo in the primary half saw Real recapture control of the tie in the match against Wolfsburg. Los Blancos continued pushing for a definitive third goal and were compensated when Ronaldo finished his cap trap following 77 minutes, sending his team through to the next round. An early goal appeared to be inescapable, and after only 15 minutes, Ronaldo struck surprisingly. Dani Carvajal let go in a low cross, and the Portugal worldwide effectively opened home from short proximity.
Wolfsburg was reeling, and Real pushed on looking for an equalizer. Straight from the restart, the hosts won a corner, and at the end of the day, Ronaldo ended up in the ideal position to sack his second goal of the match. With Wolfsburg’s two-goal point of preference followed only 17 minutes, the guests attempted to pick up a solid footing in midfield, yet Real kept on ruling play. The counter demonstrated Wolfsburg’s just weapon against Los Blancos, with Julian Draxler giving a significant portion of the peril. Gustavo attempted his fortunes from far out, yet Keylor Navas effortlessly managed the shot. On the opposite side of the pitch, Benzema set Diego Benaglio to work, yet he couldn’t put his shot past the Swiss worldwide. Benzema let go a volley over Benaglio’s goal as Real’s quest for a third objective proceeded, and following 77 minutes, they were at last remunerated. Ronaldo created one of his common free-kicks, sending it through the divider and leaving Benaglio no possibility.
