Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane was full of praise over Cristiano Ronaldo's incredible display against Juventus last night but insists his spectacular goal doesn't eclipse his effort in 2002.

"A lot of the Juventus fans stayed behind to applaud Ronaldo". "This was one of the nicest moments".

"Ronaldo? He's in a very good run of form and his teammates are very happy with him". The hosts were threatening to score after conceding early, but a wonder goal from the Portuguese and a red-card to Dybala took things away from their grasp. Frank Lampard levelled for Chelsea but Ronaldo would end up on the winning side despite being the only United player to miss during a penalty shoot-out. As a player, the Frenchman scored plenty of stunning goals himself in Turin - but what he had just witnessed from Cristiano Ronaldo was special. For me he's the best player in history.

"The best two teams are Real Madrid and Barcelona because one has Ronaldo and the other has [Lionel] Messi, which is a major advantage". When you come up against one of the best in the world like Ronaldo, you need to be ideal. Edinson Cavani, Harry Kane and Robert Lewandowski are also still in touching distance of Ronaldo, having scored 35 goals in 2017/18 so far.

With a staggering 40 goals in just 38 appearances, it looks like the race for the Ballon d'Or will be as close as ever and you certainly wouldn't write of Real Madrid in Europe.

Snead has now given up his first- and second-round picks in this draft to get Cooks and one year of Sammy Watkins . It's impossible to escape the speculation that the Cooks trade is potentially a precursor to a trade for Beckham.

Marcelo then made it 3-0 to kill off the game, and the tie effectively, but all anybody was talking about afterwards was Ronaldo's overhead kick. "We have to think about the league and then go to Madrid to play our game".

A mix-up between Chiellini and Buffon saw substitute Lucas Vazquez denied by a flying recovery save from the goalkeeper.

After the game, the five-time Ballon d'Or victor conceded: "It was probably the best goal of my career".
