Ronaldo fired the La Liga side ahead just three minutes into the quarter-final first-leg tie, and then produced a moment of pure brilliance to double the lead just after the hour which even had the home fans applauding.

Juve saw forward Paulo Dybala sent off for a second yellow card before Marcelo added Real’s third away goal in the 72nd minute to all but end the contest ahead of the second leg back in Madrid.
Ronaldo became the first player to score in 10 consecutive Champions League matches when Real swept into an early lead.
