Bayern drew first blood through a Robert Lewandowski penalty in the 53rd minute. Ronaldo equalised for Madrid in the 73rd minute with his first goal of the night.
Bayern made it two in the 84th minute when Madrid captain, Sergio Ramos slotted into his own goal.
As the game was set to go into extra time based on aggregates, Bayern midfielder Arturo Vidal was sent off for a second bookable offence.
In extra time Ronaldo scored his second and third in the 105th and 110th minute respectively. Substitute Marco Asensio put the tie to rest with Madrid’s fourth on the night in the 112th minute.
Madrid went through to the semis 6-3 on aggregate with Ronaldo scoring five over both legs.
