New Delhi:

Real Madrid on Thursday defeated Bayern Munich 2-1 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final. 

It was a record-setting game when Bayern's Arturo Vidal opened the scoring and missed a penalty after which star player Christiano Ronaldo scored the equaliser in the 47th minute and managed winning goal 13 minutes from time.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA competitions when he struck twice in the match. Ronaldo netted his 100th European goal to give holders Real Madrid a 2-1 comeback win at 10-man Bayern Munich.

"I wanted to reach this record. To be able to reach this mark is an honour and against a team like Bayern it is even better," Ronaldo, who scored both goals, told BeIN SportSpain.

Earlier in the game, Bayern started strongly and took the lead when Vidal met Thiago Alcantara's corner with a thumping header in the 25th minute.

Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer denied Ronaldo and Gareth Bale with fine stops and the tie firmly swung in Real's favour in the 61st minute when Javi Martinez was sent off following two quick-fire yellow cards.

The result left Bayern with much to do in the second leg on Tuesday, while Real remained on course in their bid to become the first side to retain the Champions League crown.
