Cape Town - Cristiano Ronaldo caused the internet to implode by scoring arguably his best ever goal with a bicycle kick in an emphatic 3-0 win for Real Madrid over Juventus in the Champions League. Buffon, though, could only stand and watch as Dani Carvajal floated a cross in from the right which Ronaldo, his back to goal, dispatched into the top corner with a perfectly-executed overhead kick. The Portuguese forward grabbed the opening goal in Turin after just three minutes and added a second on the hour with a sensational overhead bicycle kick, taking him to 14 goals in this season's competition. "He always wants to do great things in the Champions League and he never gets exhausted of doing it, that's his great quality". "They have won 10 Ballons d'Or in 10 years, they have been the Champions League's top goalscorers for 10 years".
The second leg of the game will take place on April 11 at the Santiago Benabeu, Real Madrid's home.
To score a wondergoal in the Champions League quarter-finals, is always an incredible moment.
"Up until their second goal, we had defended very well and allowed Real very little", Allegri said.
Real captain Sergio Ramos said the applause from the Juve fans was "the prize of everyone giving him recognition for so many years at this level".
Since then, they have reached two Champions League finals, losing to Barcelona and then Real Madrid in Cardiff last June. It's probably my best goal.
As if going down 2-0 with 23 minutes left wasn't bad enough, the Bianconeri found themselves reduced to 10 men just minutes later after Dybala was sent off for a second yellow card.
Ronaldo went on to provide the third goal for Marcelo. Giorgio Chiellini poked a ball past his own keeper Buffon, which Ronaldo kept in.
