Was Cristiano Ronaldo's Scissor Kick The Greatest Champions League Goal Ever?

Was Cristiano Ronaldo's Scissor Kick The Greatest Champions League Goal Ever?

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri admits he can only praise the talent of Cristiano Ronaldo after his sensational goal in Real Madrid's 3-0 win on Tuesday.

Following that, even the Juventus fans, who jeered him throughout the match, as well as a moment before when he missed a shot, were on their feet and started applauding him.

Cristiano Ronaldo is without a shadow of a doubt one of the greatest players to have ever graced a football pitch.

Having scored two fairly simple goals to wrap up an already comprehensive victory, Ronaldo saved the best until injury-time.

The Portugal star boosted his goal total for the current Champions League campaign to 14 and put the Blancos well on the way to qualifying for the semi-finals as they pursue a third straight triumph in Europe's elite club competition, reports EFE news agency.

Sharron Dobbins denied that she Tased her son but told police she "sparked the Taser to get the kids up for church on Easter". Dobbins said she did not believe she had done anything wrong. "He said that his friends dont have to go anywhere".

Juventus — and most of the stadium — thought it had equalized midway through the half but Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas pulled off a stunning save to deny Gonzalo Higuain after Dybala whipped in a free kick from the left.

Ronaldo is the Champions League's all-time top scorer with 119 - 19 clear of Barcelona's Lionel Messi.

They say practise makes ideal and there have been few, if any, Champions League goals that can stand up to Ronaldo's stunning effort.

He has scored 22 goals in Champions League quarter-finals, one more than Juventus.

Zidane opted for the same line-up as last year's final when the Spaniards crushed Juventus 4-1 to claim a record 12th European title, with Isco preferred to Gareth Bale.

"The 3-0 result is disappointing, above all as Sergio Ramos will be suspended for the second leg, so with 2-0 we could've had some hope".

The Juventus stadium broke into applause and Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, once a player of extraordinary gifts himself, looked dumbstruck at the audacity of Cristiano Ronaldo's goal.

Real Madrid pair Marcelo and Carvajal were picked to play either side of a three-man backline with Barça's Pique - the team's other scorer on the night - in the centre.
