We saw the man, the myth, the legend; Cristiano Ronaldo’s destructive form in the last season’s champions league knockout stages. Well, Cristiano Ronaldo does not look like stopping anytime soon. The Real Madrid forward starred versus PSG in the first leg scoring twice and being the match winner.
This was an important victory,” Ronaldo said to reporters. “We started the match well, but we let in a goal.
“But this is the Champions League and Madrid have the experience.”
“Games last 90 minutes and, at home, we wanted to play a good game. We have a good advantage for the return thanks to those two late goals.”
“We knew PSG were a very dangerous team with the forwards they have. We knew we had to press them to win the ball.”
“In the second half we waited a little bit, we played better, and we had more opportunities.”
“The fans have helped us a lot and we felt their warmth,” he continued. “It has to be that way.”
“Marcelo’s goal was very important, he played a good match and he deserved it.”
“When goals are scored and your team wins, it is always special. Today it started and I scored two.”
“The tie is not over yet. We have to go to Paris to win and to score goals, to be calm and to qualify for the next phase.”
