Real Madrid forward, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 14 goals in eight Champions League games this season ahead of Today’s quarter-final clash in Madrid.
It is now Ten consecutive Champions League games in which Ronaldo has scored – a new record.
The two he scored last, as well as his assist for the third, almost certainly have knocked Juventus out – the only team to have been able to send Madrid out of the competition since 2013.
Juventus have not lost a European game at home in five years, and boast arguably the best defence in the competition – having conceded just one league goal in 2018. If Juventus couldn’t stop him, it begs the question – can anyone?
The Italian league leaders are the kings of nuts-and-bolts dogged defending and got picked apart by Madrid. That they couldn’t keep Ronaldo out perhaps shows us that a traditional defensive approach just won’t work – Madrid, invariably, will find a way through.
This perhaps suggests Manchester City might be best suited to them. Not only are they arguably the best and most cohesive team Zidane’s Madrid will have faced in Europe, but their approach is suffocating.
It’s part II, So, the question is Who will stop Ronaldo tonight?
