Cristiano Ronaldo had already put Real Madrid 1-0 up over Juventus, but half-way through the second half he scored another goal which stunned the crowd and fans around the world. The Real Madrid forward leaped into the air with his back to the goal, swung his right leg high over his head and sent the ball flying past a flat-footed Gianluigi Buffon. The bicycle kick, Ronaldo’s second goal of the match, came in a 3-0 win over Juventus on Tuesday in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals. The goal was so good that even the Juventus fans rose to applaud Ronaldo, after jeering him previously throughout the match. “It was one of the greatest moments of the night for me,” Ronaldo said. “To be applauded in a stadium like this, which has been graced by so many great players, was a top moment for me. I’m really happy.
