Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri praises "extraordinary" Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo is now on the hottest streak of form in his entire career, banging home a scarcely believable 21 goals in his 11 last appearances for Los Blancos, who are looking more and more threatening by the week.

Massimiliano Allegri's side continued to press after the break but Ronaldo struck again in the 64th minute, sending an overhead kick past the motionless Gianluigi Buffon to earn a standing ovation from the home fans.

From then on it nearly turned into a romp, with Real running rampant late in the tie and while Marcelo did complete the scoreline with a fine finish, the visitors could easily have doubled their tally on the night.

Douglas Costa and Alex Sandro are moved into unexpected wide roles, keeping Mattia De Sciglio and Kwadwo Asamoah as the full-backs.

"Manager of Juventus one day?"

Despite Los Blancos' domestic troubles, Juve boss Massimo Allegri concedes they remain overwhelming favourites for the title.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who got off to an uncharacteristically slow start to the season, tallied three goals and an assist in those two meetings to run his 2017-18 Champions League contributions to 12 goals and two assists in eight appearances.

The Italian giants will have to face Madrid without both midfielder Miralem Pjanic and central defender Medhi Benatia, who are both suspended from the tie.

"Let's hope he can continue like this for the remainder of the season", Real captain Sergio Ramos said.

And some awful defending from Juventus early gave Isco the space on the left flank to set up Ronaldo nicely for the opener.

Ronaldo has also amassed 37 goals in 35 games across all competitions this campaign.

Real have not had a good season, by their standards, but they are on a five-game winning streak, scoring 16 goals in those matches.

Raphael Varane has often been found wanting in the bigger games, and against the likes of Dybala and Higuain, the latter who will be keen to prove a point, he could struggle.

And Ronaldo was showed he was humbled by their reaction and with a respectful bow, acknowledged the adulation that was coming his way from all quarters.

After a 0-0 draw at lowly Spal, Allegri's men were outplayed by Milan for much of Saturday's match before Cuadrado's 80th-minute goal.

The Portugal global also set up Madrid's third, for Marcelo, shortly after Juventus forward Paulo Dybala had been sent off following a second yellow card.
