Ronaldo brilliance puts Madrid in charge against Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid beat Juventus 3-0 in Turin to close in on a UEFA Champions League semi-final place.

Ronaldo broke the deadlock when he met Isco’s cross after just three minutes, but it was his second – a sensational overhead kick just after the hour – that prompted even the home fans to applaud.

Juve’s misery was further compounded by Paulo Dybala’s red card and Marcelo bundling in a third, with Ronaldo later hitting the crossbar – as Toni Kroos had done in the opening period – and spurning two more opportunities to register yet another hat-trick.

The headlines were already his, though, his exploits leaving Juve with a mountain to climb in the Spanish capital next week.
