In Real’s 3-0 win over the Old Lady in the first leg of the quarter-final on Tuesday, the Portuguese stunned fans with a tremendous bicycle-kick that had Gianluigi Buffon rooted to the spot.

The effort was so momentous it had Juve supporters on their feet to applaud, a gesture Ronaldo has spoken of his appreciation for.

Blaugrana midfielder Ivan Rakitic was asked what he thought of his LaLiga rival’s strike and admitted it is not easy to find the right superlatives to describe the goal.

"We have to congratulate Ronaldo on his goal, it was awesome," he said, according to Sportsmole.

"It is difficult to find the right words.

"Real Madrid dominated all aspects of their match and played really well, so we have to congratulate them."

After the game, Ronaldo said he feels it was the best goal of his career, while the likes of Sergio Ramos and even Gianluigi Buffon congratulated him on his strike.
