Cristiano Ronaldo is undoubtedly the best footballer in the world. After his consistently impressive performances that always leave his fans chanting his name, it seems that he will lead his team to Champions League glory at Cardiff after beating Bayern Munich 4-2 to qualify for the Champions League semis. He scored an impressive hat trick in the game and increased his tally of total goals scored in all UEFA competitions to 137 far ahead of Messi's 97.he also darted his 41st hat-trick across eight seasons at the Bernabeu.

Barcelona fails to progress to the semis.

The only threat to them would have been Barcelona who staged a comeback last month against Paris Saint-Germain only to be eliminated from the Champions League after a goalless draw at Camp Nou. Barcelona faced Juventus who have proved to be a formidable side going for 531min in the champion’s league without conceding a goal. Their defensive lineup had far too much quality to allow Messi easy access to Buffon. It’s obviously a sad season for Barcelona after they have been evicted from the champions league at this stage for the second time in 2yrs despite the good quality of players at the team. Juventus have an apparent hunger and experience to win the Champions League having won it last in 1996.

They painfully lost in the 2014 champions league finals, and this time they seem to have fixed all those leaks in the team.

Leicester is out.

Athletico another champion’s league favorite beat Leicester 2-1 a team that has lost its form trailing at the 12th position in the premier league with 37 points. They were unbeatable a time like this last season under Claudio Ranieri and were the clear premier league winners upsetting all title favorites.

Athletico’s Diego Simeone the guy in the dark suit has always shown passion for his team, barking orders to his players for a full 90 mins and upping the fans to cheer the players whenever there is a lull in the game. He has led his team to the semis for the 3rd time in 4yrs an impressive feat, but the sad truth is masking that achievement that they have been knocked out in all the three by Real Madrid.

Monaco stages a surprise win.

Monaco the Ligue one leaders have reached the semis for the first time since 2004.although the Monaco boss has promised his team would not abandon their aggressive style under forwarding Falcao, in the semis, it will be hard for them to progress irrespective of which team they are drawn against.

Cristiano dashed the dreams of Athletico last may in San Siro winning his team the coveted Champions League trophy. No one will be surprised if the four-time Ballon d’Or winner does the same this time at Cardiff.
