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

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