Arturo Vidal bemoans "robbery" in Champions League tie

Arturo Vidal bemoans

It's a shame: Robben Winger Arjen Robben said, "it's such a shame that such a super game, such a top game, is decided by one man with a whistle".

Two of Cristiano Ronaldo's three goals looked off side, adding to Bayern's anger with the referee's decisions as they were eliminated by a Spanish team for the fourth straight time in the competition. The team's manager, Carlo Ancelotti said after the game, "We're not happy". He makes the difference.

"It was a very hard-fought game, but in the end, we got a good result, which I believe we deserved".

VARs - which rule on key incidents concerning goals, red cards, mistaken identities and penalties - could be used in English football as early as August, with the EFL Cup first round touted as a possible initial testing bed for the technology.

Bayern went down 4-2 on the night after extra time and 6-3 on aggregate, but felt hugely aggrieved by a number of contentious decisions at the Bernabeu.

Real made their numerical advantage count as Ronaldo grabbed his second of the match in the 105th minute - which saw the forward become the first player to score 100 Champions League goals - although he appeared to have been off-side.

London [U.K], April 19: Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is likely to miss the rest of the football season after suffering a left foot injury against Tuesday's clash against Real Madrid. First Vidal was sent off for the an non-foul on a Real Madrid simulation. "I think everyone was a witness to a game that wrote history today", Rummenigge said.

TV station El Chiringuito claims that the incensed Chilean, Robert Lewandowski and Thiago Alcantara marched into referee Victor Kassai's dressing room after the match to confront him. "It was an unfortunate, undeserved and bitter defeat".

He was being outshone by the likes of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar both in the Spanish league and in the Champions League.

"If you look at the way things went, it is extremely hard when you are playing with 10 against 14..."

After we went 2-1 up and with 11 players, we were in great mental shape and then we had the wind taken out of our sails.
