Real Madrid wins MU and goes to Champions League quarter-finals
Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund powered their way into the quarter-finals of the Champions League with defeats of Manchester United and Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday in the round of 16 second legs.
Real came from behind to win 2-1 at United with goals from Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo, after Real defender Sergio Ramos had given United the lead with an own goal. The Spaniards went through on a 3-2 aggregate.
The game turned on the rather harsh sending-off of United winger Nani 35 minutes from time with the score at 1-0, for a high kick on Alvaro Arbeloa.
Dortmund had an easier time of it against Shakhtar with goals from Felipe Santana, Mario Goetze and Jakub Blaszczykowski. The Germans went through on a comfortable 5-2 aggregate, having drawn the first leg 2-2 in Ukraine.
