Reflecting on Ronaldo's remarkable effort, Zidane added: "It's one of the most lovely goals in the history of football".
Cristiano Ronaldo admits that he scored "a great goal" in Real Madrid's 3-0 Champions League victory at Juventus. The 0-3 does not reflect the possession of the ball but does show the big difference between the two teams, that can be written with just one name: Cristiano Ronaldo.
"Cristiano Ronaldo is different", said his manager, Zinedine Zidane: "He's a different player to everyone else and he always has this desire to do something extraordinary in the Champions League".
Adam Burniston's Forecast | Rain and possible snow for Easter weekend
But do be on the look out for slick spots closer to Midnight, and even beyond that as overnight lows fall to the middle 20s. The calendar says April and it is officially spring in the D.C. area but we might not be done with snow quite yet.
"Cristiano is in good form at the moment". We have the second leg at home - we know Juve are a great team so we still have to be careful - but we are happy, the team is very happy. It was his second goal - a bicycle kick after a quality cross from Dani Carvajal from the right side - that grabbed all the attention after full time.
The Frenchman's famous strike in the 2001-2002 final win over Bayer Leverkusen is widely regarded as the greatest UCL goal of all-time. Ronaldo has either scored (14) or assisted (three) 68 percent of Real's 25 Champions League goals this season. "Now it will be impossible".
Juventus looked doomed in the 66th minute as star man Paulo Dybala received a second yellow card in the 66th minute as he received the marching order from the center referee, giving the visitors the desired opportunity to capitalise.
More severe storms, possible tornadoes tonight
There is a small layer of warm air aloft that should keep storms from developing until the front is near. Then, an area of snow develops late tonight ...especially for our northern and northwestern suburbs.
The only downside for Real ahead of the return leg on Thursday, April 12 (AEST) is a suspension for Sergio Ramos.
He says he was not surprised to see Ronaldo produce such a sublime finish. "What they did for me was incredible", Ronaldo was quoted as saying. "Messi and him can be compared to Maradona and Pele for what they have been doing season after season", he said, according to The Guardian.
"We went to Cardiff with a lot of confidence - maybe too much - and that might be the first and most serious mistake we made in that final", he told AS.
