Ace footballer Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning bicycle goal to bury Juventus 3-0 on 3rd April in what looked like an encore of last year’s Champions League final. And by doing so, Ronaldo has become the first ever player to score in 10 consecutive Champions League games.

On Tuesday, Real Madrid beat Juventus 3-0 in the first leg of the quarter-finals in Turin. But Ronaldo’s second goal stole all the limelight and kept everybody talking.

Here is the video of the goal:

 

Here is how Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane responded to the goal:

 

Talking about much-talked about goal, Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said, “One of the most beautiful goals in the history of football.”

On Tuesday’s game, Ronaldo scored the first one in the first three minutes of the game.

But it was in the 64 minute that earned Portugal superstar a standing ovation. CR7 responded to all applaud by putting his hand to his heart and giving a slight bow of gratitude to the crowd.

“The applause for Cristiano says it all,” said Ronaldo’s teammate Carvajal.

“Cristiano does things sometimes that only he can do,” said Zidane, adding, “It can be said that it is one of the most beautiful goals in the history of football.”

“It’s maybe not as beautiful as mine in Glasgow,” joked Real Madrid coach while talking about his goal against Bayer Leverkusen in 2002.

“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.”

“I’m happy for him and happy to have him on our team.”

“The Juventus fans applauded Ronaldo but also for his team,” said Zinedine. “It’s beautiful. You don’t see that everywhere.”

Even Rival coach Massimiliano Allegri admitted he was amazed by Ronald’s ability to change his style of play in his thirties.

“I don’t know if Ronaldo’s goal is the best in football history, but it’s really an extraordinary goal, you can only congratulate him on what he’s doing at present,” said Juventus coach Allegri.

“The applause is a beautiful lesson from the Juventus fans to the whole world, football is a show, when you have 22 or 30 high level players and you see a shot like this one it’s good to applaud.”

Heaping praises on Ronaldo, Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said, “We saw what Ronaldo is and always has been — a player of an extraordinary level who, along with Leo Messi, is achieving the greatest heights.”

“This means they can be compared to Maradona and Pele for the way they ultimately are able to decide matches and trophies won by their teams.”

“When you play against one of the best players in the world, like Cristiano Ronaldo, you need perfection, if you leave space, he punishes you, and then he invented a goal that will remain in history. It’s a pity that he did it to us,” said Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli.
