This was a special goal even by Cristiano Ronaldo's record-breaking standards.

In fact, Ramos is also now the most booked player in the history of La Liga and the Champions League - with his most recent caution coming in Los Blancos' 3-0 win over Juventus on Tuesday.

Marcelo put the icing on the cake in the 72 minute, linking up with Ronaldo with a lovely one-two before lifting the ball over a scrambling Buffon, putting the tie very almost beyond doubt.

After the game, Zinedine Zidane said: "Cristiano Ronaldo is different".

Ronaldo had given Real the lead after just three minutes earlier in their quarterfinal clash, prompting aggressive jeers of derision from the Juventus faithful. The incredible athleticism with the leap in the air, the technique and flexibility to swing his gifted right boot through the ball and the precision to have it nestle in the corner beyond a gob smacked Gianluigi Buffon.

"CRWOW" wrote Gazzetta dello Sport in its headline on Wednesday.

"I had also scored another one similar, but I have to say, this one was spectacular". "I scored once for the national team with a bicycle kick, which hit the post and went in, but this was a bit better". "Certainly it's my best goal".

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo had said that he is the best footballer in the world and do not need to prove it to anyone as he always proved himself.

Zidane called it "one of the most lovely goals in the history of the game".

"It was one of the most handsome moments of this night, a stadium here in Juve where great players have played, applauding is a top moment", Ronaldo said.

It was always a club that I liked as a child and when the people applaud, it stays in your heart. "To all of the Italians in the stadium I just want to say 'Grazie'". "I tried it today and it came off". I am happy for him. "He's a lethal player, an assassin".

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.

Ronaldo's second was indeed sensational, yet his first - after three minutes - was perhaps more significant, making him the first player to score in ten successive UEFA Champions League matches. "But he should try it from 40 meters".
