Real Madrid's Ronaldo on wonder goal: 'I didn't expect to score'

Cristiano Ronaldo netted an unbelievable bicycle kick for Real Madrid at Juventus

The 32-year-old also has one of the most decorated trophy cabinets in the world, winning 18 honours during his 13-year spell at the Santiago Bernabéu. It is how you judge great goals.

In March, he told the Daily Mail, "I always believe and say that I am the best, whatever they say, and then I show it in the field".

"But let's speak about the game".

A lack of concentration in the opening minutes led to the early goal being conceded, and from there they were always chasing the game.

"Obviously people are talking about the second goal, it was awesome, probably the best of my career", Ronaldo said after the game.

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.

"It can be said that it is one of the most lovely goals in the history of football". The 3-0 away win might flatter us a bit but the performance merited a result like that. After that, we knew that we could make it hard for any team with our attacking ability.

Dani Carvajal sent a cross into the Juventus area, and the ball approached Cristiano Ronaldo at a height at which any footballer hailing from the world of mere mortals would have said: "Nah". We have to savour tonight.

In the process, the Portuguese star became the first player in Champions League history to score in 10 successive matches.

Twitter users quickly heaped praise on what some of them described as an "outrageous and beautiful" goal by Ronaldo. Isco? He was very important between the lines.

Last season, his efforts in the knockout stages, five goals in two legs against the might of Bayern Munich and a hat-trick against local rivals Atletico, propelled him to a higher plane.

I'm happy for Cristiano Ronaldo and we're happy to have him in our team.

Zidane's side have one foot in the semi-final draw for the Champions League, a feat that will mean their eighth consecutive appearance in the final four of the tournament.

Juventus had two penalty appeals waved away on the stroke of halftime as referee Cuneyt Cakir ruled that Casemiro's handball was not deliberate and moments later adjudged that the same player had not fouled Dybala and instead booked the Argentina global for simulation.

Centre-back Sergio Ramos, who will miss the second leg due to card accumulation, hailed his teammate's "scary" run of form.
