Keeping in mind what happened in the previous year's Champions League final, #Juventus knew this
would be an uncomfortable evening before it had even started. It was a Champions League quarter-final game, it was summer of 2018 and Juventus
were up against Real Madrid. A tightly packed Allianz Stadium in Turin witnessed yet another
Ronaldo masterclass and it propelled Real Madrid to a comfortable 3-0 victory.
While his first goal didn't need any reality check to confirm that he is human, his second one was out
of this world. The Portuguese international came up with one of the most exquisite bicycle kick
goals ever seen. Making a customary run into the box behind the defence he latched on to a Daniel Carvajal Ramos cross that became an assist. He somehow controls his body in the air to connect his right foot with the ball and smashed it into the top corner. The only thing legendary keeper
Gianluigi Buffon could do was to join the crowd to appreciate the beauty of the strike. Such a worldie
it was. His teammates were stunned, so were his opponents. The ones in the stadium couldn't
believe it either. Neither could the millions glued to the television screens. It's true we have witnessed countless iconic moments in the past decade, yet it
will be hard to find anything better than this.
10. Saving Juventus against Atletico Madrid
Perhaps the single greatest performance of Ronaldo's career came in a Juventus shirt when he fired I Bianconeri to a dramatic 3-0 win over #Atlético Madrid in March 2019.
Juve were dead and buried after losing the first leg 2-0, but Ronaldo didn't care. He netted two headers and a penalty, but it wasn't just about the goals. It was about the sheer dominance of his performance against one of Europe's most resolute defences.
When Juventus called, he answered emphatically, reaffirming his status as one of the finest performers in Champions League history.
