There was, though, no controversy about Ronaldo's second goal with 17 minutes left as he lashed the ball in from the edge of the Atletico penalty area.
Cape Town - Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane praised Cristiano Ronaldo after his latest Champions League heroics on Tuesday night, but also congratulated his "brilliant" team.
Ronaldo is now just one goal behind Barcelona rival Lionel Messi as the Champions League's top scorer this season with 10. We are one step closer to [the final in] Cardiff and we are happy.
Ronaldo's treble was his second against Atletico this season and second straight in the Champions League after hitting three past Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.
Ronaldo now has his sights set on another final, having become the first man since Robert Lewandowski in 2012-13 to achieve complete domination of a semi-final clash.
Real Madrid have always disputed a ruling by Spanish soccer authorities that Pepe should be credited with a goal in their 2-1 win against Real Sociedad back in 2010, as he deflected Ronaldo's free-kick and was later given the goal.
"He has the instinct for goals, he's unique", said Zidane.
"Cristiano is a great player who always helps the team when needed". 'He knows that the games mount up over the season and over the years and that he has to rest from time to time, but I don't think that is the only reason.
"Atletico Madrid are a great team and they're in the semi-finals for a reason".
The visitors' best chance came during the high on adrenaline first-half, when Gameiro broke through after seventeen minutes but the attempt was foiled by Navas as he tried to round the Madrid goalkeeper.
"Atletico" another trend is the Diego Simeone's side won the first match (the "Bayer" and "Lester"), and then quietly in a favorite dry-style game. "We need to forget about this game", he said. "It was my turn to score the goals, but the team was phenomenal", added Ronaldo. These things can happen.
"We have to do something impossible and being Atletico Madrid we might be capable of it". "We hope that it will happen".
"The only thing he did was to stay calm and he proved himself on the pitch".
