Cristiano Ronaldo Scores 600th Career Goal for Club and Country vs. Juventus

Cristiano Ronaldo Scores 600th Career Goal for Club and Country vs. Juventus

It seems inevitable now but Christiano Ronaldo was the hero of the piece once again as Real Madrid overcame Juventus to lift this year's Champion League title.

Juve and Real possess highly contrasting playing styles. Led by Portuguese great Cristiano Ronaldo, Madrid are in irresistible form and favourites to win this one.

Fresh from their first La Liga triumph in five years, the Spanish giants won the Champions league for the second year running with a commanding performance over the Italian champions Juventus.

Ronaldo has taken his UEFA Champions League-record career tally to 105 with his brace at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

"We hope not too many people were injured and we hope they get better soon".

Rugged Juventus snuffed out Messi in this season's quarter-finals and initially it seemed they might be able to hold Ronaldo in check as well. As previously said, their last UCL win goes back to the 1996 season.

Warriors, Cavaliers begin Round 3
Durant is averaging 25.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.2 blocked shots a game in the Warriors' ideal playoff start. Not to go out there and score a number of points, but to just go out there and win the game and make winning plays.

It began with Ronaldo winning his first title with Portugal at the European Championship. The goalkeeper blocked a header and strike from Gonzalo Higuain, and produced a one-handed save when Miralem Pjanic picked a gap through a crowd of defenders.

It was Zidane's stunning volley against Bayer Leverkusen that won Real the 2002 title in Glasgow, while previous year, five months after replacing Rafael Benitez as coach, he breathed new life into a demotivated team and took them to the Champions League trophy.

It was while he was in Turin that he developed into a player with elegance, vision, ball control and great technique forcing some commentators to argue he was probably the greatest midfielder ever.

Cardiff native Gareth Bale made an appearance as a late replacement for Karim Benzema, having been out since April 23 with a calf injury.

Leonardo Bonucci's deep ball was brought down by Alex Sandro, who cut it back to Higuain in the penalty area.

Los Blancos' mounting dominance paid off as Juve failed to clear their lines from an attack, allowing Casemiro to fire a long-range effort past Buffon via ex-madridista Sami Khedira.
