Real Madrid traveled to Juventus tonight in the Champions League quarter-final looking to salvage their season with the La Liga all but lost. They now look set to progress to the last four, thanks to an absolute masterclass from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Early in the game, Ronaldo became the first player in Champions League history to score in ten successive games in a row with a great finish after just three minutes. However, it was his second that had everyone gobsmacked as the Portuguese captain pulled off a truly sensational bicycle kick.
Just look at his manager's reaction.

Kevin Kilbane called it one of the greatest Champions League goals in history on commentary and it's hard to argue with that description. Not only was the finish superb but the sheer height he had to leap to in order to strike the ball is impressive in itself.
Marcelo added a third after Paulo Dybala was sent off to all but finish the tie in the first leg.
