The various in-stadium reactions to Cristiano Ronaldo's goal against Juventus

Juventus fans did not think twice before standing up and cheering Cristiano Ronaldo's overhead kick during the Italian football club's Champions League encounter with Real Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo's stunning bicycle kick came as a surprise to the man himself after his memorable display guided Real Madrid past Juventus in the Champions League.

Ronaldo has now scored in his last 10 Champions League games in a row and has 39 goals for the season in all competitions.

We love great soccer plays.

"I have to say thank you, Grazie, to all the supporters of Juventus". They realised that this was a moment to appreciate what they'd just seen, and to put their side's nearly certain elimination to one side.

Ibrahimovic was referring to the ridiculous, bicycle-kick goal he scored in November 2012 for Sweden against England in an exhibition game.

Ronaldo's Champions League legacy is his greatest ever achievement.

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been in superb form in 2018 so far, has climbed to the top of this season's scoring chart after struggling in the first half of the campaign.




He finished his career with 71 Champions League goals and the gap between him and the chasing pack appeared significant.

With every goal we are encouraged to take a step back and admire his mammoth body of work as a whole, the sheer scale and gravity of it.

Not only was the world of football talking about Ronaldo's goal, National Basketball Association star LeBron James published a photo on Instagram of the action, and world MotoGP champion Marc Marquez, a Barcelona fan, tweeted: "Bufff what a great goal for CR7!".

The extraordinary athleticism required for Ronaldo's latest golazo is another reason so many found joy in this particular goal. While one wrote, "When Zidane does this, you know you're good", another wrote, "How do I explain this to my unborn children?" Ronaldo exchanged passes with Benzema before poking the ball to James Rodriguez, who then lofted it into the box. "I'm the coach but I'm also a football fan, when I see something like that ... that's why Ronaldo is different from others because he can do that kind of thing". Ronaldo would go on to score a penalty in extra-time as Real beat city rivals Atletico Madrid 4-1 in the final to claim their 10th European Cup or Champions League title.

Speaking to the media post-match, Juve head coach Allegri told reporters: "He has been the best forward in the world in recent years".

"I've been looking for it for a long time but they are part of the game".

Gianluigi Buffon had just pulled off a fantastic save to deny Lucas Vazquez but the move continued and Ronaldo leaped acrobatically into the air to meet a Dani Carvajal chip with his back to goal and smashed the ball into the bottom right corner to put Madrid 2-0 ahead.
