Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid star's goal stunned Masters 2018 hopeful Sergio Garcia

Cristiano Ronaldo: Real Madrid star's goal stunned Masters 2018 hopeful Sergio Garciaā€¯

Even by Ronaldo's record-breaking standards, this one was special.

"To all of the Italians in the stadium I just want to say: 'Grazie"'.

The jeers of the home fans turned to applause and earned him a standing ovation after 64 minutes when Dani Carvajal crossed back into the area where Ronaldo connected with an outrageous bicycle kick.

"I am like everyone", Zidane said at a postgame news conference. "He shows that every time". For me he's the best player in history. "I'm the coach but I'm also a football fan, when I see something like that ... that's why Ronaldo is different from others because he can do that kind of thing. That's why I put my hands on my head".

Real Madrid welcomes Juventus to Santiago Bernabeu in a fortnight for the return leg of the Champions League- quarter final.

"Their ability makes everything much more hard and it forced us to become less precise than usual".

"Obviously people are talking about my second goal - it was a spectacular goal, possibly the best of my career", he said.

Los Blancos became the first team in history to win the Champions League in consecutive years when they conquered Juve in 2017, and could well be on their way to making it a three-peat if current form is anything to go by.

Real Madrid's No7 remains the king of the Europe - but the man wearing the number now is in a league all of his own.

Taking the game away from Juventus in the manner he did means the Italian champions face an nearly impossible ask in the second leg.

AUDIO: Kansas Jayhawks' First Full Day In San Antonio
Both teams play pretty well and yet there were some things each team did that they don't normally do and still stayed in the game. The Midwest Region champion Jayhawks will take on the top seed out of the East Region, Villanova , at 7:49 p.m. on Saturday.

"You never know in football", Allegri said.

Ribery and Thiago represent Bayern Munich in the midfield of this XI alongside Sevilla's hard-working Sarabia, and the deliverer of Liverpool's second-goal rocket, Oxlade-Chamberlain. But Ronaldo once again came out on top.

Ronaldo increased his scoring rate to 14 goals in nine matches in the 2017/2018 Champions League.

In a competition created to pit the world's best players against each other, one has built a podium above all else.

Both sides continued to have chances after the break.

The free-kick from Dybala deflected off the wall and dropped just wide of the top-left corner, with Navas wrong-footed.

"Given the result, maybe it's for the best that I'll miss the second leg".

The match changed shortly after the hour mark.

Ronaldo eventually doubled Real's lead with a goal of the highest quality.
