Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo was clearly offside for crucial ET goals vs Bayern Munich (Video)

The holders win

Real Madrid are on course to retain the Champions League trophy after sweeping aside Bayern Munich in the last eight. But they had no shortage of assistance for the match officials.

If there wasn’t enough controversy surrounding Arturo Vidal’s red card, Madrid’s second goal was a joke.

Ronaldo’s offside goal

As we put it at the time, Cristiano Ronaldo was only a few days offside for the goal.

The ball was hit over the top of the Bayern defence for Ronaldo to make it 2-2 on the night and 3-2 on aggregate. He would later add a third before Marco Asensio rubbed salt in Bayern wounds with a fourth goal.

But the second goal shouldn’t have counted. Ronaldo chested it down before volleying home.

His third goal also appeared to be scored from an offside position.
