Champions League: Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus beaten, clueless and admiring his brilliance

Ronaldo scored a record-breaking goal and a stunning overhead bicycle kick to bury Juventus 3-0 on Tuesday in a rematch of last year's Champions League final.

"I don't know if Ronaldo's goal is the best in football history", he said.

Such was the brilliance of the strike that Juventus fans stood up to applaud the goal that probably ended their hopes of going through.

Both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo have taken goal-scoring to another level, making 30 goal-a-season strikers look like mere patsies in front of their 50 goal seasons, and despite having what many call his worst season ever, Ronaldo has outdone himself yet again. Text the word "SPORTS" to 22840 and receive local and global sports news as it happens.

Marca's very simple cover summed up the feeling around the Spanish capital "The Goal, ' said the headline over an incredible image showing just how high Ronaldo had leaped in the air to make contact with Dani Carvajal's cross".

"I'm so happy - thank you to all of them".

"I don't know when Buffon will stop but, for sure, a champion must leave when he has no more passion for what he does, when he can not improve or when he does not play", said former Juventus and Italy forward Alessandro Del Piero. "We love to play in the Champions League, I love to play in the Champions League".

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

And Marcelo effectively booked Real's place in the last four when he played a one-two with Ronaldo before scoring from close range.

Marcelo fed Isco down the left channel and the midfielder's cut-back into the penalty area fell right to Ronaldo, who fired his 13th Champions League goal of the season past Gianluigi Buffon. Usually teams who go on to be so dominant over such a long period of time quickly become known as one of the great football sides in history.

There was even recognition from a giant of a different sport as three-time National Basketball Association champion James of the Cleveland Cavaliers joined in the praise, telling Ronaldo in a post on Instagram: "that's not even fair".

"He's a different player to everyone else and he always has this desire to do something extraordinary in the Champions League".

Cristiano Ronaldo's shot flies off his boot towards the Juventus goal.
