    People laud Cristiano Ronaldo after he reaches another incredible milestone

    Opening day goals

    Cristiano Ronaldo loves the Champions League.

    So do Real Madrid, with the side defending champions for the second year in a row.

    Ronaldo has been missed in La Liga after his lengthy suspension was upheld, and the club were thrilled to welcome him back for the Champions League tie.

    They weren’t waiting long for a goal – with Ronaldo slotting him to open his and Real’s account in the Champions League for the six season in a row. Pretty special.

    Of course, after Lionel Messi finally scored against Gigi Buffon and Barcelona managed an impressive win over Juventus, something special was needed from Ronaldo, and of course he decided to deliver.

    People might point to the quality of the opposition, but you can only score against what’s in front of you, and Ronaldo managed to do that and secure a win for Real Madrid to boot.

    After that performance, Real and Zidane will be willing him back into their La Liga side and awaiting the return of his talisman.
