Real Madrid punished Juventus 3-0 with maximum effort from its superstar Cristiano Ronald. After just three minutes of action in Ronaldo lost the Juventus defense to flick Isco's cross past Juve legend Gianluigi Buffon to put Real in control of the tie with an away goal. Ronaldo's goal saw him become the first ever player to score in 10 straight Champions League matches, but the best was yet to come from the Portuguese forward.
When Real Madrid needed Ronaldo he responded. After Buffon pulled off a fine save to deny Real following a mix-up in defense, Ronaldo pulled off an unbelievable bicycle kick to put them two goals ahead. The goal was so spectacular that it had thousands of Juventus fans applauding Real Madrid's with a standing ovation. Even Real Madrid's head coach Zinedine Zidane rubbed his head in disbelief.
Juventus knew the danger Ronaldo possesses from painful first-hand experience after the Ballon d'Or winner scored two goals against them in last season's Champions League final. Real Madrid are now up 3-0 and will be facing Juventus at home when they play the second leg.
