Real Madrid beats Juventus in Champions League

Real Madrid beats Juventus in Champions League

Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of the Champions League's great goals as his incredible bicycle kick helped Real Madrid demolish Juventus in the quarter-final first leg.

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo made 152 Champions League appearances, while Casillas played 171 games.

Real Madrid smacked Juventus 3-0 in the Champions League quarter-final in Turin, the home city of Juventus.

Ronaldo admitted he had been trying to score a goal as spectacular as that "for a long time" as he scored his 13th and 14th goal in the Champions League - five shy off his record 17. "To be applauded in a stadium like this, which has been graced by so many great players, was a top moment for me". "I want to thank all the Juventus fans as they have done something fantastic that has never happened to me during my career". "This was one of the nicest moments".

After the game, Zinedine Zidane said: "Cristiano Ronaldo is different".

The goal was Ronaldo's second on the night, having earlier given his side the lead.

Ronaldo's longstanding rival Lionel Messi is one of three players, along with Lazio's Ciro Immobile and Benfica's Jonas, who follow with 36 strikes in joint-third place.

Some terrible defending from Juventus early gave Isco the space on the left flank to supply Ronaldo for the opener, with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon helpless to stop the Portuguese's expert flick. He always has a great desire to do great things in the Champions League, he never gets exhausted of doing what he does. When you come up against one of the best in the world like Ronaldo, you need to be ideal.

While many of those dismissing Ronaldo's goal as nothing special were no doubt simply being contrary for contrary's sake, or wishing to appear aloof and enigmatic, for many it was an understandable reaction to the sometimes overwhelming hype surrounding the game's great and good. "I always thought that" Ronaldo told France Football when he won his fifth Ballon d'Or.

Do you think Real Madrid will win the Champions League this season? What they did for me was unbelievable.

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. I am happy for what he did.

"The wonder goal he scored. he's the best in the world".

But, asked whose famous goal tops the lot, the Real Madrid boss was less effusive.
