Real Madrid: We are not in the Champions League final yet – Ronaldo
Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, has insisted that they are not in the Champions League final yet, after scoring all of his side’s goals in a 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid in Tuesday’s semi-final first leg.
Ronaldo headed Real in front in the 10th minute, before lashing in the second in the 75th. The Portugal forward completed his treble with five minutes left.
“It was a total game from the team, we played phenomenally well,” he said after the game.
“We have a good advantage, but it is not over yet. Atletico are very strong, they are not in the semi-finals by chance, and we must keep our concentration next Wednesday.”
Ronaldo went level with Lionel Messi with his seventh hat-trick in the competition, but chose to remain humble after his record breaking feat.
“The whole team deserves to be congratulated, they were tremendous. It just felt to me to score the goals.
“We played very well from the start to finish, and the goals came naturally. We deserved a complete game against them. In La Liga we did well, but [Atletico keeper Jan] Oblak made a lot of saves, and today the ball went in.
“I am very happy for the goals that I have scored, and to reach 400 with Real Madrid,” he added.
