Video: Ronaldo Produces Trademark Header to Smash Juventus Ahead Against Ajax

Cristiano Ronaldo produced one of his trademark bullet headers this evening as his Juventus side edged ever closer to the semi-finals of this season’s Champions League.

Having scored for the Italian giants in the first-leg in Amsterdam last week to help secure a 1-1 draw, Juve went into tonight’s game hot favourites to reach the last-four of the competition, and their star man showed exactly why after just 28 minutes.

His game used to be about pace, trickery and speed, but these days Ronaldo is all about his power, particularly in the air, and he sent the home fans inside the J Stadium into raptures with his latest goal tonight:

To their credit, Ajax levelled not too long after to make the match 1-1 on the night and 2-2 on aggregate, but who’d bet against Ronaldo lifting the Champions League trophy for the sixth time next month in Madrid?

What do you think?
