Cristiano Ronaldo in numbers

Real Madrid won't go straight to Cibeles if they beat Juventus

It was impossible to ignore Ronaldo, as his team mate Toni Kroos was quick to point out. We are the first team to win it two years in a row and I scored two goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo capped his greatest year by helping Real Madrid become the first Champions League holder to retain its title, showcasing his enduring lethal scoring qualities in a 4-1 victory over Juventus on Saturday.

When Juventus enjoyed spells of pressure in the first half, they largely held firm.

"You need a guy to score the goals and he did it again", said the Germany worldwide.

With his first goal, Ronaldo joined Alfredo Di Stefano as the only two players to score in three different European Cup/Champions League finals.

"I still have one more year on my contract, so that means I have one more chance of winning the Champions League", he told Sky Sport Italia.

Amir, Fakhar lead Pakistan to Champions Trophy triumph
Pandya did provide a little hope with his 76 runs helping take the reigning champions from 72-6 to 152-7. Within three overs, however, their reply was in tatters as Amir produced a devastating spell of bowling.

After Casemiro put the Spanish champions back in front in the 61st, Ronaldo turned in his 600th career goal at the near post three minutes later, and Marco Asensio wrapped up a record-extending 12th title in the 90th.

The former Sporting and United winger-turned-striker turned 32 in February but far from fading he is as risky as ever - perhaps even more effective than in his younger days.

"This season was wonderful again, last season was awesome". Me and my team-mates have done the double. The truth is that the numbers don't lie. "I am happy, these are good moments".

"I prepared myself for this, you win the biggest prizes because of what you do at the end of the season", Ronaldo, who has benefited from playing fewer games than in previous campaigns, said as his team mates celebrated.

Zinedine Zidane brought him into Madrid's first-team squad this time around and he has served as valuable cover for their all-star forward line, especially during the closing weeks of the season when the head coach rotated his side to fine effect on the way to LaLiga and European glory. The world player of the year knocked the ball across to Dani Carvajal on the right flank before drifting into the penalty area to receive it back and beat Buffon. Class, quality and the killer touch - all when it matters most.
