Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has become the most booked player in the club's 116-year history, following a booking in his side's comfortable 3-0 over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League quarter finals.

Real Madrid striker Cristiano Ronaldo scored an outrageous bicycle kick goal against Juventus on Tuesday evening.

He has scored 39 goals in 36 games for Real this season - more goals than anyone else who plays in one of Europe's top five leagues (England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain).

"We saw what Ronaldo is and always has been - a player of an extraordinary level who along with Leo Messi is achieving the greatest heights", said Buffon.

"I have to say thank you, Grazie, to all the supporters of Juventus".

"This was one of the nicest moments", he said.

"Ronaldo? He's in a very good run of form and his teammates are very happy with him".

But how has Ronaldo's breathtaking bicycle kick affected his chances of winning the 2018 Ballon D'Or? He has found the net in his last 10 Champions League games, so it's not a surprise.

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 come up against one of the best in the world like Ronaldo, you need to be flawless. 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.

He nearly had a second when he smashed a ball across goal after good work from Karim Benzema. Normal humans don't think along those lines on a football pitch, they think about how to win a game.

Porto v Manchester United - Champions League quarter-final, April 15, 2009: Arguably the best goal Ronaldo scored during his time at Old Trafford, the talisman of Sir Alex Ferguson's side crashed in the only goal of the game to send the Red Devils into a semi-final against Arsenal. "It's maybe not as lovely as mine in Glasgow", joked Zidane of his goal against Bayer Leverkusen in 2002 that gave Real their ninth Champions League title.

And Marcelo effectively booked Real's place in the last four when he played a one-two with Ronaldo before scoring from close range. Manouevring his body at will, he launched himself high into the rainy Turin sky to connect with an unforgettable overhead kick that reduced goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to the role of spectator.
