Six of Real Madrid’s most bizarre modern-day signings
The Champions League's highest ever goalscorer will have been boosted by his 85th-minute winning goal against Barcelona at the weekend. J ese is now stationed out on the left, and works himself into уольфсбург space on the edge of the Wolfsburg box.

Please refresh the page and retry. C ristiano Ronaldo inspired Real Madrid to a record sixth successive Champions League semi-final with a hat-trick as the Spanish giants overturned a first leg deficit to beat Wolfsburg in dramatic fashion. Ronaldo struck twice in just over a minute to bring Madrid level in the tie inside 17 minutes. Y et, the time winners were forced to wait until 13 minutes from time to find the winner when Ronaldo's dipping free-kick escaped the clutches of Diego Benaglio to find the bottom corner.
A re strutting on social media where we shall leave them to their rewarding observations. But this was not a one-man performance. His work-rate and movement is key to their system. Why Arsenal keep going for him when Real Madrid cannot afford to lose him is beyond me.
A word for Sergio Ramos, too, who played very well. I can only echo Jim Royle's cry. M anchester City and Real Madrid are through. Barcelona and Bayern Munich have first-leg leads to defend tomorrow. Michael Owen wonders if one of the lesser teams Atletico? I'd fancy them against anyone save for Barcelona and I reckon they'd have a good chance against them in a one-off final.
O ver whether the free-kick was any good. Robbie Savage and Owen Hargreaves think it was poor defending. I still think Ronaldo banked on them moving to score his third Champions League hat-trick of the season. Sixteen in 10 European Cup games this season. R eal Madrid are through.
A Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick puts them into the semi-finals. W olfsburg stick it in the mixer, pumping it long but Ramos clears, Jese picks it up and heads into the box. Robbie Savage who would not, indeed has not, criticised Bale for not heading immediately for the corner a minute ago, slates Jese.
R eal Madrid finally go 'the full Leicester' and make camp by the corner flag until the referee and linesman gives a throw-in to Wolfsburg that was very disputable.
D ost flicks a header into the box that Ramos hammers clear up to Jese who holds the ball up with the tie won and finally passes to Bale. He cannot resist a shot and taps a low right-footer tamely to Benaglio which gives Wolfsburg a chance to launch it. That's dreadful 'game management' from bale who nonetheless is praised for that very, erm 'quality' 30 seconds later when he stays on the floor after a foul for a minute. F or the first time Real Madrid do not commit men forward for the corner and Wolfsburg clear without pressure.
Naldo and Dost are mimicking Shearer and Sutton, fighting for headers as a twin 'Large and Large' strikeforce as Wolfsburg go all long ball. B enaglio makes another spectacular save from Jese who had tacked in from the right wing and spanked a diagonal riser at the keeper. D ante sends Ronaldo flying as BT Sport show a montage of his celebrating his third goal. Facial celebrations?
T he whistling that started immediately after the kick-off following Ronaldo's third crescendos around the Bernabeu. Jese replaces Benzema to eat up 30 seconds while Wolfsburg switch to with Bas Dost on for Guilavogui. S till, Wolfsburg only need to score to turn the tables on Real Madrid. Ronaldo scythes down Arnold to go into the book but then Real Madrid break when the Wolfsburg free-kick breaks down and Benzema wriggles through the box on the left.
