The Legendary Cristiano Ronaldo Scores A Legendary 'Bicycle Kick' Goal

Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo

It could have been worse for Juventus as Ronaldo missed several chances to complete his hat trick, while Mateo Kovacic hit the bar late on. No player has more against a single opponent in the Champions League.

Ronaldo has either scored (14) or assisted (three) 68% of Real's 25 Champions League goals this season. Although said with tongue slightly in cheek, his fitness levels and unrelenting skill suggest that he could continue playing at this level for many years to come.

Ronaldo is the Champions League's all-time top scorer with 119 - 19 clear of Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

There was no doubting, however, the moment for which the match will always be remembered, by Juventus fans too, who rose to their feet to salute the celebrating Portuguese. Please, if you do one thing tonight make sure you see Ronaldo's second goal.

"Ronaldo? He's in a very good run of form and his teammates are very happy with him".

"Well, for me it was an unbelievable moment", Ronaldo said.

"It was one of the most handsome moments of this night, a stadium here in Juve where great players have played, applauding is a top moment", Ronaldo said.

"It's something that stays in your heart.I want to thank all the Italians who were here in the stadium and applauded me".

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane joked his own wonder strike in the 2002 Champions League final against Bayer Leverkusen was "better" than Ronaldo's. What's more impressive is the fact Ibrahimovic's bicycle-kick was the fourth goal he scored against England that day. Sometimes, it doesn't' work, but you always have to try. "Well, of course I'm proud", Ronaldo said, adding: "I didn't know until you told me". What can I say?

"I've been looking for it for a long time but they are part of the game".

The Portugal superstar leapt acrobatically to meet Dani Carvajal's cross from the right with the sweetest of overhead efforts in the quarter-final first leg in Turin.

Former England striker, Michael Owen tweeted: "OMG".

Players of Ronaldo's ilk attract hype due to the value of their exploits.

Real Madrid won the match, 3-0.

Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo scored the first goal in the third minute.

But, asked whose famous goal tops the lot, the Real Madrid boss was less effusive. Every time they ventured forward, they looked unsafe and posed a serious threat to Juventus' backline - and the quality of their goals showed the gulf in class. He collected a pass from Karim Benzema before a step-over and a drag-back saw him dance past both Aurelien Chedjou and Selcuk Inan and he angled a low shot past Fernando Muslera to seal a superb display. Ramos also has three senior honours with his country - one FIFA World Cup and two European Championship titles. 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.

"Winning here 0-3 isn't easy". Manouevring his body at will, he launched himself high into the rainy Turin sky to connect with an unforgettable overhead kick that reduced goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to the role of spectator.
