Ronaldo’s brace on the soil of Cardiff takes Los Blancos through to their Mission Duodecima.

Juventus  (Mandžukić 27′) 1-4 Real Madrid (Ronaldo 20′ & 64′ , Casemiro 60′, Asensio 90′)

While checking the ink of my pen before starting to pen down the report, a scene from one and half years back suddenly crept into the mind, the day when Florentino Perez shook hands with a bald man from France to replace Rafael Benitez. The critics all around the world wasted no time in issuing their statements of the probable length of his tenure, obviously on a negative note.

One and half years after the same guy has managed to produce the biggest smile possible on the face of the Madridistas. After a certain bald genius from Italy, the bald genius from France has managed to retain the top continental glory in club football for the first time after 27 years. Yes, after Arrigo Sacchi it’s Zinedine Zidane.
