MUNICH — Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly had three pairs of soccer shoes stolen before Real Madrid's Champions League game against Bayern Munich. The new ones he'll get as compensation will make him fit right into the Oktoberfest this year.

German radio station Bayern 1 says it will donate a pair of Bavarian folk shoes to Ronaldo after the Portugal winger and teammates Mesut Oezil and Karim Benzema reportedly had shoes and shirts stolen from the dressing room at Allianz Arena.

Bayern won the first leg of the semifinal 2-1.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Madrid has filed a complaint with UEFA over the alleged theft.
