With the score poised at 1-1 in Sunday's Madrid derby in La Liga between Real and Atletico, Cristiano Ronaldo's number appeared on the fourth official's electronic board in red and the crowd in the Santiago Bernabeu fell silent.Ronaldo's goal against Atletico was his 24th in his last 13 matches across all competitions, and the 10th consecutive match in which he has scored.It was Ronaldo's two goals, including a spectacular scissor kick, that helped Madrid earn a 3-0 first leg lead over Juventus and the veteran will look to benefit from his extra rest in Italy this week to send his side through to the semi-finals.
