Ronaldo hits two as Real Madrid go through


Real Madrid reached their second successive Champions League quarter-finals under Jose Mourinho after years of failure with his predecessors thanks to a 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow at the Bernabeu last night.

Gonzalo Higuain set Real on their way in the 26th minute, turning in Kaka's cross from close range. That put them 2-1 ahead on aggregate and Cristiano Ronaldo made the tie safe 10 minutes after half-time with a long-range strike

Substitute Karim Benzema added a third almost immediately after coming on, and while former Manchester United winger Zoran Tosic got a late consolation for CSKA, Ronaldo's second, deep in added time, wrapped things up for Real.
