The Real Madrid forward’s strike got 36 percent of the vote on UEFA’s site.
Ronaldo surprisingly won ahead of Saul Niguez’s strike against Bayern Munich and Alessandro Florenzi’s half way strike against Barcelona couldn’t beat the Portuguese one.
By chance, it was Florenzi who had influence in Ronaldo’s goal; the Portuguese forward sped down the left wing before performing one of his trademark ‘Ronaldo chip‘ moves to sidestep the Italian, and afterward unleashed an unerring right-footed strike into the upper right corner.
Los Blancos went ahead to win the match 2-0, after Jese Rodriguez included a second late. They won the second leg of the round 16 with the same scoreline, going ahead to win the competition with Ronaldo scoring the final penalty in the last against Atletico Madrid.
