Cristiano Ronaldo sends message to Juventus fans who applauded his bicycle kick


"Obviously it'll be hard, but right now we're preparing to play well on Saturday".

"One of the most lovely goals in the history of football", said Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane.

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.

Paulo Dybala was sent off for a second yellow card just minutes later for a kick on Dani Carvajal, as he turned around, unaware of the right-back's presence and collided with him in an attempt to control the ball.

Casemiro told reporters that people should enjoy everything Ronaldo brings to the team, and not just his spectacular goals, for as long as possible. Ronaldo says "certainly it's my best goal". "To be applauded by the Juventus stadium, where so many great footballers have played, is a top moment for me".

"It's something that stays in your heart".

"I can't fault my players at all: they playing against an incredible team and the best centre forward in the world, who has scored 14 goals in nine Champions League matches so far".

"Other times it has gone wrong, but you have to always try. I tried and I scored", he added.

"A great goal. What can I say?"

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past two days, you will have seen Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning bicycle kick against Juventus.

"I've been looking to do it for a while, but it depends on the circumstances of the game".

I'm happy for Cristiano Ronaldo and we're happy to have him in our team. Of course the first leg complicates things.

Ronaldo's brace gave him the Champions League record for goals scored in consecutive games.

Former England striker, Michael Owen tweeted: "OMG". Giorgio Chiellini prodded a ball past his own keeper Buffon, which Ronaldo kept in play.

Marcelo then made it 3-0 to kill off the game, and the tie effectively, but all anybody was talking about afterwards was Ronaldo's overhead kick. Ronaldo has scored some sensational goals in his career.

Both sides continued to have chances after the break. Just four minutes into the game, Rafael van der Vaart was fouled by Edouard Cisse some 35 yards from goal.

Substitute Mateo Kovacic hit the bar before Ronaldo saw a shot saved and then fired over as Real Madrid all but secured their place in the semi-finals.

After the game, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor conceded: "It was probably the best goal of my career". When you come up against one of the best in the world like Ronaldo, you need to be ideal.

"Winning here 0-3 isn't easy".

Marcelo put the icing on the cake in the 72 minute, linking up with Ronaldo with a lovely one-two before lifting the ball over a scrambling Buffon, putting the tie very almost beyond doubt.
