While many will rightly argue that Marcelo was the real hero of the night after seeing his two outrageously good goalline clearances, Ronaldo made sure the plaudits were his.

Well, a perfect hat-trick will do that.

So here it was: a header, a left-foot and a right-foot…

Incredibly clinical, and yet another occasion when Ronaldo rose to the big occasion.

It would take a brave punter to back anyone else after the way Real Madrid stormed through the final stages.

Breathtaking stuff.
