  • Juventus vs Real Madrid Live score

Cristiano Ronaldo added to his legend Tuesday with an acrobatic "bicycle kick" goal for Real Madrid against Juventus in the first leg of a Champions League quarterfinal in Turin, Italy.

Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational goal against Juventus in the Champions League is the kind to make you wonder why people even bother trying to play against him. "To be applauded in a stadium like this, which has been graced by so many great players, was a top moment for me. For this I thank all the Italian fans, thank you". They realised that this was a moment to appreciate what they'd just seen, and to put their side's nearly certain elimination to one side.

It was, Ronaldo himself said, "probably the best" of his entire career. Ronaldo had scored the first goal within the opening 3 minutes of the match and with the bicycle kick scored the second. He's a different player to everyone else and he always has this desire to do something extraordinary in the Champions League. Remember at the start of the season, when it seemed like Ronaldo had forgotten how to score? He always has a great desire to do great things in the Champions League, he never gets exhausted of doing what he does.

Haniger, Gordon homer in Mariners' win over Indians
The Mariners lost Saturday afternoon 6-5 to the Cleveland Indians , but the play heard 'round baseball belonged to Ichiro . The Indians doubled their lead when designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion led off the fourth inning with a solo home run.

With every goal we are encouraged to take a step back and admire his mammoth body of work as a whole, the sheer scale and gravity of it. "When you play against one of the best players in the world, like Cristiano Ronaldo, you need perfection, if you leave space he punishes you, and then he invented a goal that will remain in history". All three goals could've been avoided, really, but in these games if you don't have a little bit of luck and the opposition do, it becomes hard.

"With the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia it would be a very positive year, and we know that here we need to try and win the Champions League, which is definitely more hard but now and in the future it's something we want to do". I think the game was wonderful, we scored three goals against Juve - a great team.

Real Madrid won the match, 3-0. I'm the coach but also a fan.

BBC World Service's John Bennett said: "I don't think he has scored a better goal than that".

Substitute Mateo Kovacic hit the bar before Ronaldo saw a shot saved and then fired over as Real Madrid all but secured their place in the semi-finals.
