Ronaldo delighted with "magic night"

Forward fires hat-trick to send Real through

Cristiano Ronaldo has described his delight at a "magical night" for him which sent Real Madrid through to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Trailing Wolfsburg 2-0 from the first leg in Germany last week, the former Manchester United player scored twice in three minutes to level the tie in the first 17 minutes at the Bernabeu.

The Spanish side completely dominated the game and Ronaldo completed his hat-trick with 13 minutes remaining to book Real's spot in the last four.

"Considering this has been a 'bad' season for me it has not been that bad," he said in reference to criticisms he has received this campaign, including being booed by his own fans during the previous round against Roma.

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

"It was a magic night for me. I'm very happy after having scored three goals and raise my numbers, but the most important thing was the team. The team was intense and played very well. It is a beautiful night."

"People can criticise me but I just keep on 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's not bad, is it? Goals are in my DNA and I want to keep scoring them for the team."
