A Cristiano Ronaldo hattrick in the second leg of Real Madrid's Champions League quarter-final clash against Wolfsburg proved to be enough, as the Spanish giants overturned a 2-0 1st leg reverse to qualify for the semis on Tuesday, 12 April.

The Portuguese forward scored twice within a couple of minutes in the first half at Santiago Bernabeu, to restore parity in the tie. With Real needing to win by at least a three-goal margin to qualify, the 10-time European champions continued to pile the pressure on Wolfsburg.

Ronaldo then scored again through a free-kick late in the second half, as Real Madrid secured a 3-0 win to clinch the tie 3-2 on aggregate, thus securing a spot in the last-four.

In the other game of the night, Kevin de Bruyne scored for Manchester City in the second half to send the club to its first ever UEFA Champions League semi-final.

De Bruyne's goal secured a 3-2 aggregate win for City, with the first leg in Paris having been a 2-2 draw.
