A brace from Cristiano Ronaldo and another from Marcelo did the trick for the Spanish side against the team who the faced in last year’s final. Somewhat predictably, it was the five-time Ballon d’Or winning Portuguese star who left the internet ablaze with his second goal – an incredible bicycle kick that resigned a stunned Gigi Buffon and his Juve teammates to their fate.
Safe to say, Twitter enjoyed it…
There is only a few of us who can do that

Badly needed VAR that game. Stop the play. Goal disallowed and red card for Ronaldo – dangerous high foot

Even the Juve fans knew when to simply stand and applaud…
opposition fans applauding a goal is objectively good and makes a moment significantly more memorable do not @ me

Meanwhile Paulo Dybala got quite a different reaction for his own high foot…
Dybala gets the red card and walks off the pitch. And with it goes a big piece of his World Cup chance.

Dybala… disappoints again against quality opposition when the pressure is on. Maybe one day but not today. Is he really the guy to build around? Give me Isco over him any day.
