We all love to compare Messi and Ronaldo, but maybe we should just be stoked that we live in an age where two of the finest (if not the finest) footballers of all time are banging in goals like this.
Last night saw Real Madrid dismantle Juventus, whose defence is the stuff of legend, and it was Cristiano who led the charge. His first goal was a classy finish, but it was his 64th minute overhead that stole the show.
Seriously, the skill levels on display here are frightening:

The goal was so good that the Juventus fans actually gave it a round of applause:

Yeah, they know genius when they see it. So does Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri, with this from the Guardian:
“I don’t know if Cristiano’s goal is the best in the history of football but it’s certainly an extraordinary goal. You can only congratulate him for what he’s doing at present,” Allegri said…
The veteran Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was not surprised to see Ronaldo produce such a sublime finish. “At his best? No, I think he was the usual Ronaldo. Messi and him can be compared to Maradona and Pele for what they have been doing season after season,” he said.
I’ll forever be a Messi man, but hats off to Ronaldo for another staggering display of greatness.
