Ronaldo thanks Juve fans for touching gesture

Massimiliano Allegri said Juventus fans were right to applaud Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo for his stunning overhead goal in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Los Blancos were out at 9/2 (5.50) before kick-off, but a brace from Cristiano Ronaldo - including a sumptuous bicycle kick - means that the current champions are now backed in to 11/4 (3.75).

Even a partisan Juventus crowd couldn't hide its admiration.

"We had a great game", Zidane said following Madrid's win in Turin. "He shows that every time". He's a different player to everyone else and he always has this desire to do something extraordinary in the Champions League. He has found the net in his last 10 Champions League games, so it's not a surprise. Only five teams, including Real Madrid, have scored more.

The Italian side now has a near-impossible task to turn the quarterfinal around in the return leg on April 11. "You can only congratulate him for what he's doing at present". "We have to prepare it in the best way possible because it's a quarter-final and everyone will be watching us".

In Turin, Juventus was out for revenge after losing the final 4-1 to Madrid past year.

Ronaldo has three more seasons on his current contract with the Galacticos, but has insisted he won't sign a new deal at the Bernabeu if he doesn't get an improved deal.

The free-kick from Dybala deflected off the wall and dropped just wide of the top-left corner, with Navas wrong-footed.

One goal against PSG in the second leg of the round of 16.

The match changed shortly after the hour mark.

Despite his two goals in Turin, Ronaldo was annoyed with himself with failing to score a hat-trick, Buffon denying him with a sharp save and then the Portuguese striking the ball over the crossbar from ten yards. And we scored three goals against Juve - a great team.
