  1. Good night

    And we'll call that a day there.

    Another Ronaldo show, another step closer to the final for Real Madrid.

    Tomorrow it's Monaco v Juventus. Yes please!

  2. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    No club has defended the Champions League trophy since it became the Champions League.

    You'd back Real Madrid from here, wouldn't you?

    Done as much as he can?

    SMS Message: Not sure if you agree guys but how is Simeone going to take this Atletico side and win the Champions League and be the best team in Europe when they can't beat Real in 5 attempts? Maybe he's done amazing up until now but he's not the man to take them to the next level and be that elite club to challenge in the games against the big boys. Just a thought? from Callum

  4. 'Not impossible'

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Atletico manager Diego Simeone: "Coming back from 3-0, I do not think it's impossible. There's a return and we have our options."

  5. 'Much more than we expected'

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos on BT Sport: "It's a very good result, much more than we expected, but it is just the first leg.

    "We had the extra man in midfield and we controlled the game, we were able to pass the ball in dangerous areas.

    "We deserved the win but now we go to the Calderon.

    "It is great to have a player like Ronaldo. You need someone to score to get the result and he is unbelievable."

  6. Post update

    It is amazing really that Cristiano Ronaldo has had to ask - as he did against Bayern Munich in the last round - for some patience from the crowd.

    Maybe they'll sign someone better in the summer eh?

  7. 'Don't whistle me'

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo: "It was a total team match.

    "We have a good advantage, but this is not closed. Atletico is very strong, they are not in the semi-finals by chance and we have to concentrate on Wednesday."

    Ovation of the Bernabeu: "I just want you not to whistle me. Otherwise, I will always try to give everything for them."

  8. 'Tore them apart'

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Henry Winter

    Chief Football Writer for the Times on BBC Radio 5 Live

    This is not a cheap defence, this is not a side who give away goals cheaply. This is a side that has Diego Godin that back line and Cristiano Ronaldo absolutely tore that defence apart tonight. 

  9. 'That man again'

  10. 'They deliver on the big occasion'

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    I feel embarrassed to say Cristiano Ronaldo is greater than Messi but you just need to see his performance tonight - he is 32 and has scored a hat trick in the semi-final of the Champions League. 

    I have goosebumps here thinking of that performance.   

    One without the other wouldn't be as successful. What sets them apart from every other player, is that they deliver on the big occasions.

    Muscab Ali: Ronaldo is a good goal scorer but he is not at the level of Messi, there is a a difference between an eagle and a falcon

    Antony Short: Messi or Ronaldo, who cares, let's just enjoy it while it lasts 

  12. 'He makes the sacrifices'

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Phil Neville

    Former Manchester United defender on Radio 5 live

    Messi and Ronaldo are the best players who have ever lived but I am biased because I saw the sacrifices Ronaldo made at Manchester United to be as good as he is. 

    Carrington training ground was about two or three miles around and he used to take a ball and run the whole way around doing his tricks all the way and that was after training. 

    His professionalism is staggering - he will go home tonight, get in an ice bath, he will be refuelling with the right food and taking care of himself.  

  13. 400 up?

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    There seems to be a slight element of doubt over how many goals Cristiano Ronaldo has now scored for Real Madrid - but the club themselves are saying 400, so let's go with that.

    Just let that sink in. Four HUNDRED goals.

    If someone gets 50 for my club they are pretty much immortalised.

    We can agree with that. I don't see anyone coming through who can match Ronaldo or Messi when it comes to goalscoring, do you?

    We'll be back to thinking 30 goals in a season is a lot soon...

    SMS Message: The Messi vs Ronaldo argument can rumble on but they are both undoubtedly MILES ahead of the next best players. Incredible talents that won't be seen again for many years. from Dan.

  16. 'It's a 'wow' from me'

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Ronaldo

    Real Madrid were far too good tonight. They totally outclassed Atletico. 

    It could have been two or three at half time and we have seen some sensational footballing performances from the man of the moment.

    He has put one foot into the final in Cardiff. Real Madrid keep raising the bar and I am amazed at Ronaldo's drive. 

    He keeps wanting to get better as a footballer - his was a "wow" performance tonight. 

  17. 7-7

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    For those of you keeping score, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have now both scored seven Champions League hat-tricks.

    Ronaldo

    Sho Rahman: Can't believe how one sided this game has been. Shocked by how poor Atleti have been

    Sean McGreal: Diego Simeone & Atletico look utterly broken after that. No way back I fear. 

    DubsGuy: It's hard to argue with Phil Neville here. I know Ronaldo won't win a World Cup, but he single-handedly won Portugal the Euros.

  19. Post update

    Real Madrid 3-0 Atletico Madrid

    Cristiano Ronaldo was jeered by some of the Real fans against Bayern.

    Before his hat-trick, obviously.

    Now those still inside the Bernabeu are serenading the number seven as he goes through some post-match interviews.
