Zidane On Ronaldo’s Match Winning Performance

Real Madrid’s Zinedine Zidane On Cristiano Ronaldo’s Match Winning Performance

By Keegan Kruger - Feb 15, 2018 09:26 AM @KeeganKruger

Zinedine Zidane admits he is finding it difficult to come up with new ways to describe Cristiano Ronaldo after the Real Madrid star scored twice in Real Madrid’s 3-1 victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see pictures of Real Madrid's 3-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.

The Portugal international became the first player in the competition to score 100 goals for the same club, as he scored once from the penalty spot and the other from open play.

After the match, Zidane told members of the media that he is running out of words to describe Ronaldo’s performances because he keeps on producing amazing things.

"It's difficult to say the same thing about Ronaldo every day. He keeps doing amazing things." Zidane said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

The Frenchman was pleased with how Real played the first leg but insists that the tie is not done yet.

"We played a good game all the way through," Zidane added.

"We pressed high and continued to play our game even when they went ahead. It was a deserved win. We got a great win tonight. But we know there's still another match to go – it will be a very tough game.

"We saw last year (in the semi-finals, 3-0 home win against Atletico Madrid; Atletico then won 2-1 at home) that when you play away anything can happen. The fans were key today. They didn't let up at any point, even at 1-0 down they kept on cheering us on.

"With Isco in the team we wanted to dominate midfield and he did a great job. He was mobile all night, particularly at the beginning of the game. We changed things towards the end because we knew Paris would tire and bring on (Marco) Asensio, (Gareth) Bale and (Lucas) Vazquez helped us to take advantage of that."

Morata Flirts With Real Return?

The second leg of the tie will be played on the 6th Match at the Parc des Princes in Paris.

I was not satisfied with the performance by both teams worse certain individuals that I thought will come to the party, maybe they applied this SA trending word "postponed performances"

@Africabest boet taking a penalty is the hardest thing in football and I can only imagine when it in such a competition. As for that"tap-in" it wasn't easy because it needed sharpness and the exact touch which is exactly what he did and not anyone would have scored that. Football looks easy but it is not, only if you've played it you'll understand what I mean. Good game by Real

@africabest..it seems like u dont know nothing when it comes to soccer..that was a big match and to convert a penalty is not an easy task like playing ABC motsepe leage..also to position yourself in order to finish those tap ins ur talking about its not easy as u see them..it takes a quality player to do so..

I am a massive Madrid fan. Honestly yesterday Ronaldo did nothing to inspire Madrid. He scored a penalty and a lucky tap in. Any cow could have scored those goals. The real inspiration came from Marco Asensio and Marcelo as always. If Madrid want to proceed to the next round they must pull up their socks at Paris
