Juventus 0-3 Real Madrid | This is Ronaldo's crowning glory

Juventus 0-3 Real Madrid | This is Ronaldo's crowning glory”

Real Madrid won the match, 3-0. Many argued that similar goals have been scored by the likes of Andy Carroll, Trevor Sinclair and more recently by Ashley Barnes, without receiving anywhere near the same plaudits.

Having opened the scoring inside three minutes, the Portugal captain was at it again with an unforgettable bicycle kick in the second half.

After the goal, Juventus fans, who had been booing Ronaldo throughout the match gave him a standing ovation. Ronaldo responded by putting his hand to his heart, bowing slightly to the crowd. "The applause for Cristiano says it all", said Carvajal.

"Cristiano is simply a different player than all the others", Zidane said.

Hitting Coaches? What Do They Do? "When I coached in high school, I hope that I did that for my players". However, an already potent lineup upgraded over the winter and could be enough to put them over the top.

Should he continue at this rate, a third straight UEFA Champions League final triumph could loom, though Ronaldo was in no rush to say as much. Ronaldo would go on to score a penalty in extra-time as Real beat city rivals Atletico Madrid 4-1 in the final to claim their 10th European Cup or Champions League title.

An ESPN and Dario AS journalist, who is more commonly known on Twitter as MisterChip, revealed that Ramos' 222 yellow cards with Real Madrid make him the club's most booked player.

Cristiano Ronaldo thanked Juventus fans who applauded his stunning bicycle-kick goal for Real Madrid against the Italian side yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Juventus failed to avenge themselves from Madrid after their loss in the previous Champions League final match. "It's lovely. You don't see that everywhere".

Iran urges Saudi Arabia to end Yemen war, engage in dialog
They were once strong enough to force the legitimate government to flee, but the Saudi-led Arab coalition has weakened them. Saudi officials aren't concerned, however, as they're threatening to attack Iran over he missiles instead.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri admitted he was amazed by his ability to change his style of play in his thirties to adapt to losing some of his once-searing pace.

"I would love to be able to tell you how to score a goal like that, but I never have". And Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, himself considered one of the best players in history, clutched his head in amazement. "Certainly it's my best goal".

"It was one of the most attractive moments of this night, a stadium here in Juve where great players have played, applauding is a top moment", Ronaldo said. They were behind and they kept cheering their team on.

In a competition created to pit the world's best players against each other, one has built a podium above all else. The Portuguese worldwide burst onto the world stage as a promising young winger with Manchester United before morphing into the goal scoring cyborg we continue to see with Real Madrid today. "It's a pity that he did it to us", lamented defender Andrea Barzagli.
