Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stunning goal as his incredible bicycle kick helped Real Madrid demolish Juventus in the quarter-final first leg on Tuesday.
The Real forward made history with the first of his two goals, prodding home Isco’s cross to become the first player to score in 10 consecutive Champions League games.
The Italian side had chances to equalise in a decent first half, although Toni Kroos went close to doubling Real’s lead when he hit the crossbar with a 25-yard effort.
Then moments later, Dani Carvajal lifted a cross to the Portuguese, who soared in the air and sent a flying acrobatic kick past Gianluigi Buffon, who had no chance.
It got even worse for the Turin side, who lost last year’s final to Real, as Paulo Dybala was shown a second yellow card for a high boot in the chest of Carvajal.
And Marcelo effectively booked Real’s place in the last four when he played a one-two with Ronaldo before scoring from close range.
In another match played last night, Bayern Munich came from behind to take control of their clash against Sevilla.
A Jesus Navas own goal, from Ribery’s low cross, and Thiago Alcantara’s deflected header from the France international’s delivery after the break extended the visitors’ winning run in Europe this season to seven consecutive games.
Sevilla had grabbed the led when midfielder Pablo Sarabia scored after earlier missing a golden opportunity from eight yards at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
