CR7's Stunning Bicycle Kick Receives Standing Ovation From Juve Fans

Cristiano Ronaldo's Stunning Bicycle Kick Receives Standing Ovation From Juventus Fans

By David Kappel - Apr 04, 2018 07:31 AM @kappilinho

Cristiano Ronaldo once again stole the show in his side's 3-0 win over Juventus in their backyard, and followed in the footsteps of Ronaldinho and Diego Maradona when he received a standing ovation from the home crowd for his incredible bicycle kick goal.

Click through the gallery to see images of Ronaldo's overhead kick goal, and his reaction after receiving a standing ovation from the home crowd.

The Portuguese scored his side's opener within the first three minutes of the first leg of the quarter-final tie – his fastest ever goal in the UEFA Champions League.

It was his second strike that stole the headlines, however, when scored with an outstanding bicycle kick from a Dani Carvajal cross.

The 33-year-old's superb goal even had Juventus fans on their feet, applauding the player they had whistled at just minutes earlier.

Ronaldo himself seemed surprised by the reaction of the home crowd and acknowledged the standing ovation from the Juve fans by thanking them with a gesture, putting his hands together before bowing his head down and giving them a thumbs-up.

In doing so, the Los Blancos talisman followed in the footsteps of greats such as Diego Maradona and Ronaldinho, who both received standing ovations from Real's home crowd for their outstanding displays in El Clasicos in 1983 and 2005, respectively.

Ronaldo's strike will surely be remembered as one of the best in Champions League history, with some suggesting it was even better than Zinedine Zidane's superb volley in the 2002 final.

Do you think Ronaldo's bicycle kick was the greatest goal ever scored in Champions League history? Have your say in the comments section below.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a bicycle from near the half way line for his country against England. A much better goal than this. Many many players have scored bicycle goal kicks but do you hear people saying they are the best player in the world? No. But the Ronaldo fanboys will make it out like it is the greatest goal of all time. LOL. Let me see Ronaldo dribble 3-4 players on his own and score a goal, like Messi does regularly. Let me see Ronaldo dribble his way out of extremely tight situations and score/assist. Ronaldo will never be able to do what Messi does, but Messi can do everything Ronaldo can do. The only thing Ronaldo is better at is headering the ball. Messi is simply a better all round player and that is the truth.

@pato He has. Both Real Madrid fans (arch rivals) and Betis fans gave him a standing ovation. Shows how bias Ronaldo fanboys like you are.

@alizebucs1986 he scored a beautiful goal but not the greatest I've seen ...he found it hard to sleep because that was the first of its kind for him...so bow if u want to but I'd rather bow to someone who has scored such goals more than once because it shows that its in their genes.

Only childish will remind you about some past glories instead of Congratulating or just kip quiet. If I bought a Car don't tell about yur uncle's new Car but just purely congratulate me or shut yur mouth. CR7 got standing Ovation and childish are telling us about Messi 2009 one. May God save yu so yu can stop suffering from hatred

LM10 received a standing ovation at the Bernabeu in 2009 almost 10 years later someone gets a standing ovation from a lesser team and is hailed as king??? Lionel gets many standing ovations every season but some cow gets 1 standing ovation for a fluke goal that was better scored by a South African goalkeeper??? A average performance from a highly overrated player and a good performance by a world class team that’s all this is

I'm happy for Ronaldo, he finally got it right. Phela he has had so many miscue in his career, it would have been embarrassing if it has another one.
