Cristiano Ronaldo’s bicycle kick has basically made whatever else happened in this match seem absolutely redundant.The home fans go silent for a second, and then a vast majority of them stoof up, adjusted their raincoats and applauded

The match

Such was the class of Cristiano on a glorious champions league night in the Old lady arena in Turin. His class shone like a million stars as he dazzled the Turin fans with his clinical finish.All the record held before tonight and the invincibility of the old lady was thrown into the trash can. The last team to score 3 goals against Juventus was Ronaldo’s former club Manchester United when they defeated Juventus 3-2, they had a 1 loss in 75 matches in European football.

The deft touch by Ronaldo that resulted into the first goal as early as the 3rd minute would have put the host’ plan into disarray.Though they tried to rally but it was to no avail.

Madrid soaked the pressure and relied on a fast counter attack,First stanza ended 1-0. The second stanza saw Juventus poised to attack and find an early equaliser but Madrid removed the sting out of the potency upfront. Cometh the hour, cometh the man, Cristiano Ronaldo.scored an overhead kick to make it 2-0, it goal was so good even Juventus fans had to be on their feet to applaud that great goal and Cristiano responded by shelving his signature celebration and acknowledged with utmost respect the Juventus fan. Paulo Dybala was shown a straight red for reckless play,Madrid put the icing on the cake when the trio of Isco, Ronaldo and Marcelo combined to play a classic tiki taka to beat Buffon and put the ball behind the net for Madrid’s third on the night.

All predictions went out of the windows as Madrid turned on the style and broke every record in the Juventus champions league story.
