Cristiano Ronaldo and Champions League knockout football: they go together like bacon and eggs, cheese and wine, chips and dip. It’s an iconic pairing that brings out the best in both, delivering scintillating performances on the biggest stages and moments that will burn themselves into your memory.

For football fans, Tuesday simply brought more of what we have all come to expect: Ronaldo netted a brace, inclusive of a jaw-dropping overhead kick, as Real Madrid waltzed into the Juventus Stadium and had their way with the Italian champions.

To do what they did, at the home of Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini, was absurd, unheard of and almost heinous.

The 3-0 scoreline flattered Juventus; it could easily have been five, possibly six. Given Ronaldo missed two further good chances and both Toni Kroos and Mateo Kovacic struck the crossbar, that’s a difficult sentiment to oppose.
