Video: Cristiano Ronaldo Grabs His Second With Sensational Finish vs Atletico Madrid

Video: Cristiano Ronaldo Grabs His Second With Sensational Finish vs Atletico Madrid

Cristiano Ronaldo has earned Real Madrid some breathing room in tonight’s Champions League semi-final against Atletico by scoring his second goal.

Ronaldo rose above the Atleti defence in the first 10 minutes, scoring a trademark bullet header which gave Jan Oblak no chance.

However, while the Portuguese’s first goal was one to be admired for pure grit and determination, his second which earned Real a 2-0 lead was even better.

Some wonderful build up play from Real saw Karim Benzema pick the ball up on the edge of Atletico’s box, before sliding a pass to Ronaldo.

The Balon d’Or winner then shrugged off Filipe Luís and lashed a thunderous shot into the net:

While Diego Simeone has earned major plaudits throughout his managerial career for inspiring his players and making his team hard to beat, it’s hard to see Atletico mounting a serious comeback tonight.

They may have to wait until next week, when the sides meet again for the second leg at the Vicente Caulderon.
