"Maybe they will not whistle him any more", said Zidane in defense of his star man. "We played really well and were so close to the semifinals. They were decisive scenes".
Of course, the game was not without controversy as Cristiano Ronaldo's hat trick pushed Real Madrid to beat Bayern Munich. "It wasn't even a foul".
Cristiano Ronaldo is "verging on ridiculous" after reaching a Champions League record of 100 goals, according to his former Manchester United team-mate Michael Carrick. "You have to say that", Hummels acknowledged.
And reporter Jose Luis Sanchez, of Atresmedia TV programme "El Chiringuito de los Jugones", said Robert Lewandowski, Arturo Vidal - sent off in the 84th minute for a controversial second yellow card - and Thiago Alcantara entered the official's dressing room and insulted him before police intervened. He did make contact with Marco Asensio but only after he got his toe to the ball.
"The referees sometimes give for you and others take it away".
10-man Bayern Munich, who had seen Arturo Vidal sent off by that point, were initially gritty and positive. The linesman's flag was not raised, though, and the Portuguese obliged with a lethal left footed finish.
