The 64th-minute bicycle kick, Ronaldo's second goal of the match, came in a 3-0 win over Juventus on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals.

Ronaldo's second was sensational, but his first - scored in the third minute - was perhaps more significant, making him the first player to score in ten successive UEFA Champions League games, having started that sequence ten months ago in the final defeat of Juventus in Cardiff. "To be applauded in a stadium like this, which has been graced by so many great players, was a top moment for me".

"A lot of the Juventus fans stayed behind to applaud Ronaldo".

"However, LA Galaxy player, Zlatann Ibrahimovic, still believe Ronaldo's goal is not worth the hype it is receiving as he said in an interview".

Ronaldo had earlier admitted that he did not expect to score his bicycle kick.

"We played against champions of an incredible level".

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been in superb form in 2018 so far, has climbed to the top of this season's scoring chart after struggling in the first half of the campaign. The Champions League will generate €1.27bn of revenue this season that's shared by participant clubs.

Said Allegri: "We had defended very well and allowed Real very little until their second goal". I think we deserved to score at least one goal, but we faced a very strong and well-prepared team and we're sorry that we lost in this way.

With a staggering 40 goals in just 38 appearances, it looks like the race for the Ballon d'Or will be as close as ever and you certainly wouldn't write of Real Madrid in Europe.

The goal was so good that even the Juventus fans rose to applaud Ronaldo - after previously jeering his every touch.

Legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, whom Ronaldo has beaten with nine of past 11 shots on target, called his conqueror an "extraordinary champion ... to be compared to Maradona and Pele".

Ronaldo is the only player to have scored in the 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016 European Championships, as well as the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups.

The fanfare around Ronaldo's goal is also in part due to his status as a showman.

For the Old Lady, the 3-0 scoreline does not paint a just picture of the match, as for significant periods of the game they were pressuring Madrid and creating chances.
