In one of the biggest UEFA Champions League nights, Cristiano Ronaldo's brilliance proved too much for visiting Bayern Munich as Real Madrid romped to a 4-2 win at the Bernabeau.
The Bundesliga giants opened the scoring via a penalty kick by Robert Lewandowski in the 53rd minute.
Cristiano Ronaldo then leveled things up with a classical header in the 76th minute, but as the home fans were celebrating, a defensive blunder cost Los Blancos as Sergio Ramos scored an own goal in the 78th minute.
Bayern's undoing occurred barely 5 minutes to the end of regulation time when Arturo Vidal was shown a second yellow card and was sent off; the game then proceeded into extra-time.
Real Madrid then dominated the whole night, Ronaldo scored twice and then Marco Asensio wrapped things up.
It ended Real Madrid 4-2 Bayern Munich, with Zinedine Zidane's men winning 6-3 on aggregates and are through to the semi-final.
