During Real Madrid's 2-1 victory over Al Jazira on Wednesday, chants of "Messi!"

Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale were both on target in Wednesday's semi-final win over Al Jazira, at Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Sports City.

A win would make it the third time that Real Madrid have won the trophy, equalling the achievement of their great rivals Barcelona.

Then it was time for Cristiano Ronaldo to get going.

Since the beginning of the match, Real started to attack to the opponent goal post.

The first-choice goalkeeper was forced off only six minutes into the second half but performed heroics to keep Real out during the opening period. Among them, seven shots were directed to the target but could not find the net.

In 51st minutes of the game, coach of Al Jazira replaced the current stopper Ali Khasif by Khaled Al Senani.

A superb free-kick from Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock after 53 minutes, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor clipping the ball over the wall and into the bottom corner. Just two minutes after a shot of Marco Asensio went outside of the cross bar.

Despite dominating throughout, Madrid trailed at half-time to Romarinho's opener in a match also marred by use of the video assistant referee (VAR) that ruled out a goal for both sides.
