Inside, it described Ronaldo as "Di Stefano 2.0", highlighting that Real had not beaten Juventus away since the late Alfredo di Stefano scored the only goal in a 1962 European Cup quarter-final first leg win.
Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted his stunning bicycle kick in Real Madrid's win over Juventus on Tuesday was probably the best goal of his whole career.
Following his strike, Juventus fans stood up to give Ronaldo a warm ovation, and the Portugal worldwide has thanked the supporters for their reaction. They realised that this was a moment to appreciate what they'd just seen, and to put their side's nearly certain elimination to one side.
After the game, Zinedine Zidane said: "Cristiano Ronaldo is different". Ronaldo had scored the first goal within the opening 3 minutes of the match and with the bicycle kick scored the second. The general consensus seems to be that people are glad they are alive while Ronaldo played.
Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been in superb form in 2018 so far, has climbed to the top of this season's scoring chart after struggling in the first half of the campaign. He has found the net in his last 10 Champions League games, so it's not a surprise.
Said Allegri: "We had defended very well and allowed Real very little until their second goal". The Portuguese global 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.
The Argentine No10 has also won the trophy four times, scored in finals, and engraved his name deep into the competition's history. I think the game was awesome, we scored three goals against Juve - a great team.
Home fans inside the stadium immediately rose to their feet to applaud what they had seen, even though it had all but certainly ended their interest in this season's Champions League.
"I would love to be able to tell you how to score a goal like that, but I never have". The ball then went flying past a flat-footed Gianluigi Buffon.
