Ronaldo earned a standing ovation from the home supporters after his wondergoal in Madrid's 3-0 quarter-final first-leg win at 10-man Juve.

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.

Yes, as Gwen says, it's fantastic that Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in 10 consecutive Champions League matches, but his goal in Turin was truly unbelievable, maybe the greatest goal of his career.

Ronaldo has been in a league of his own in terms of Champions League scoring in the past three years and already has 13 goals in nine matches this season.

When Cristiano Ronaldo said in an interview in March that he was the greatest footballer ever - many chuckled and guffawed.

Following his strike, Juventus fans stood up to give Ronaldo a warm ovation, and the Portugal global has thanked the supporters for their reaction.

"Well, for me it was an unbelievable moment", Ronaldo said.

"However, LA Galaxy player, Zlatann Ibrahimovic, still believe Ronaldo's goal is not worth the hype it is receiving as he said in an interview". "I didn't expect to score that goal, but let's speak about the game". The general consensus seems to be that people are glad they are alive while Ronaldo played. Unfortunately for Juventus the ball ran to Carvajal, whose cross was dramatically converted by Ronaldo.

The fanfare around Ronaldo's goal is also in part due to his status as a showman.

"I've been looking to do it for a while, but it depends on the circumstances of the game".

But, asked whose famous goal tops the lot, the Real Madrid boss was less effusive.
