Real Madrid came back from the brink last night to overturn a two goal deficit in the Champions League second leg against Wolfsburg.

It was their talisman Cristiano Ronaldo again who inspired Madrid to overcome the odds and claim a 3-0 victory after he remarkably scored his 35th hat-trick for the club.

Ronaldo was in imperious form last night. He hailed the team’s efforts calling it a “perfect night”, and took aim at critics who have said that the 31-year-old is having a bad season; despite scoring 46 times this campaign.

“35 hat-tricks. It’s not bad is it? Goals are in my DNA and I just want to keep scoring them for the team,” Ronaldo said.

“It had to be a magic night and it was,” he added.

“It was the perfect game in the end. We had to be patient for an hour but it was the perfect night.”

“Considering this has been a ‘bad’ season for me it has not been that bad. People can criticise me but I just keep in going and the numbers are there for all to see. I am very happy and with a month left of the season I can get even better.

“It was one of my best European nights, not the best but one of my best.”
