Last night, Real Madrid inched closer to the Semi final by beating Juventus 3-0 in their home. Christiano Ronaldo was awesome, netting two goals.
After 64 minutes, Ronaldo produced one of the most delightful goals this competition has seen.
A mix-up between Giorgio Chiellini and Gianluigi Buffon saw Ronaldo pounce on the ball. He slipped it to Lucas Vazquez, who struck a crisp drive. A fine save from Buffon looked to have restored order, but the ball dropped handily for Dani Carvajal on the right.
He crossed the ball, high, and Ronaldo leaped like an immaculately coiffured salmon to bicycle-kick the ball into the corner.
It was a perfect blend of beauty and timing. The mighty Buffon was powerless. And there was no way back for a gutted Juventus.
