Ronaldo: I didn't expect to score 'fantastic' overhead goal

Real Madrid's Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo (C) scores during the UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg football match between Juventus and Real Madrid at the Allianz Stadium in Turin on April 3, 2018.

As reported earlier, Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo scored one of the most incredible goals in 3-0 Champions League victory over Juventus in the first leg of the quarterfinal.

He has now scored 16 goals in his past 10 Champions League games - 14 goals this season and a double in last year's final against Juventus.

Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted his stunning bicycle kick in Real Madrid's win over Juventus on Tuesday was probably the best goal of his whole career.

"It was one of the most lovely moments of this night, a stadium here in Juve where great players have played, applauding is a top moment", Ronaldo said.

Following his strike, Juventus fans stood up to give Ronaldo a warm ovation, and the Portugal global has thanked the supporters for their reaction.

Speaking about receiving a standing ovation, he added: "It was one of the most poignant moments of the night". They are making a big deal because it's Ronaldo, and with good reason. He's a different player to everyone else and he always has this desire to do something extraordinary in the Champions League.

The 36-year-old male is in critical condition while one woman is in serious condition and the other is in fair condition. Police Chief Ed Barberini said the woman believed to be the shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

It could have been worse for Juventus as Ronaldo missed several chances to complete his hat trick, while Mateo Kovacic hit the bar late on. "We love to play in the Champions League, I love to play in the Champions League".

We have published both goals below.

They say practise makes flawless and there have been few, if any, Champions League goals that can stand up to Ronaldo's stunning effort. What they did for me was fantastic. "I'm a Real Madrid coach, but I'm a football fan too". "They have won 10 Ballons d'Or in 10 years, they have been the Champions League's top goalscorers for 10 years".

The five-time world footballer of the year has now scored in his last six matches against veteran Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, netting nine in total.

Cristiano Ronaldo's goal is one for the history books. The reaction of Zinedine Zidane, the coach of Real Madrid is also going viral.

But, asked whose famous goal tops the lot, the Real Madrid boss was less effusive.
