Real Madrid produced a stunning display during their 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Gareth Bale scored a stunning opening goal, however Ronaldo stole the headlines on the night, scoring his 410th and 411th goals for Real Madrid. He now has four goals in the Champions League this season already after scoring two goals in Real’s opening game against APOEL.
Although two goals in a game for Ronaldo doesn’t seem too special anymore, he still managed to produce a moment of surprise during the game. Ronaldo was through on goal and was one-on-one with the Dortmund goalkeeper, the perfect scenario for the forward to slot the ball into the back of the net like we’ve seen him do all too often.
However to everyone’s surprise, Ronaldo chose a rather unselfish option and decided to square the ball across the face of goal for his teammate Bale! The Welshman wasn’t able to convert the finish, however the fact Ronaldo chose to pass when he was one-on-one with the keeper was enough to send Twitter into meltdown.
Ronaldo tried to pass to Bale.. inside the box!!!???

And now the wrong option from Ronaldo! Or maybe just a poorly placed pass for Bale. Bizarrely unselfish of him too. Cracking game.

Madrid will face Tottenham at the Bernabeu in their next group match, and they will be hoping Ronaldo can add to his Champions League goal tally to help Real take a step closer to the knockout rounds.
