Spanish newspaper Marca simply hailed the acrobatic strike as "The Goal" on its front cover. Inside, it described Ronaldo as "Di Stefano 2.0," highlighting that Real had not beaten Juventus away since the late Alfredo di Stefano scored the only goal in a 1962 European Cup quarterfinal first leg win.Real coach Zinedine Zidane clinched the club's ninth European Cup with a whirlwind volley against Bayer Leverkusen in 2002 although the Frenchman admitted he was "a little bit jealous" of Ronaldo's thumping strike.A four-time Champions League winner, Ronaldo is the leading scorer in Europe's top competition for the seventh season in a row, on 14 goals in nine appearances this campaign, three from equaling his record of 17 strikes in the 2013-14 season.
