Stunning Performance by Christano Ronaldo:
With one-half of the UEFA Champions League fixtures done, and what an exhilarating night and performances from Real Madrid, and more specifically, the man himself, Cristiano Ronaldo.
With having scored 7 times in the last 5 games against Juventus, Ronaldo seemed to be the greatest threat to Juve and Buffon’s Champions League dream, just like last year, and boy oh boy did he prove that time and time and again!
In the form of his life, Ronaldo has scored in the last 10 consecutive Champions League fixtures, which itself is a record. Ronaldo managed to get 15 goals in 10 matches, something that probably no one will ever match for a long time.
Ronaldo also scored the fastest goal of his Champions League career when he fired home to give Real Madrid a 1-0 lead at two minutes and forty-seven seconds(2:47), which was then extended by a world-class overhead kick in the sixty-forth minute which left everyone in awe!!
The fans went crazy as Ronaldo fired in the top corner from 18 yards out from near the penalty spot, and there was nothing Gigi Buffon could have done!
This also marks Ronaldo’s 119th Champions League appearance, of which he has won 95 of them! The most and only tied with none other than Real Madrid legend himself, Iker Casillas.
These two goals also take Ronaldo’s goal tally to 39 goals, the most in the 2017/18 season.
Can he win the Champions League for the third time in a row? We’ll find out soon enough.
