The forward was the star of the 3-0 win over Atletico Madrid with his hat-trick putting the club within touching distance of the Champions League Final.

"I'm very happy. It was a match filled with emotion, the team was phenomenal and scoring three goals made it a special night", he said.

Ronaldo moved onto 100 European goals in the quarter-final win over Bayern Munich, when he scored five times - including a treble in the second leg. "He's got great concentration and quality" added Zidane.

"I don't think that we are euphoric and imagining ourselves in the final". We'll enjoy this one tonight and then rest up.

He said: "We will fight and give our all in the second leg". "Atletico are very strong, they are not in the semi-finals by chance and we have to concentrate on Wednesday". We can hurt any side with our weapons. To win 3-0 is huge.

Ronaldo's second, in the 73 minute, after a ball played towards him by Karim Benzema, was a pure strike - slamming a bouncing ball into the top corner with ridiculous power.

"Football is a marvellous game and anything can happen. We know that we're going to have to perform just as well and put in a ideal performance if we're to progress", he added. I'm very lucky, and I am from this planet!

His jaw-dropping tally now stands at 399 goals in just 389 games.

"The three goals give us an advantage, but the tie is not over and you can not joke around with football".

"Every time I see him I am amazed at his drive and determination to be the best in the world - and on Tuesday it was a "wow" performance from him. He knows that himself because he is intelligent". "I'm pleased with all of my players". He is unique. All the players were brilliant.

"Today Isco played as a No. 10 and was fantastic. I'm pleased with all of my players".

There were contrasting emotions for Atletico boss Simeone.

Real Madrid in the first semi-final will not help bale and Pepe, Atletico is also a loss - Juanfran, giménez and Fernandez missing a game, and part Vrsaljko is at issue.

"You also need to have a bit of luck as well, because I prepared myself and things have been going well, for me and for the team".

And Simeone is clinging to the hope of something similarly unexpected. However, we haven't won anything yet and we need to be just as on it as we always are.
