Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in more Champions League finals than any other player after netting a brace against Juventus in Saturday night’s final.

The Real Madrid forward put the LaLiga champions ahead in Cardiff with a low, first-time strike after a cutback from Dani Carvajal 20 minutes into the match. That was the third Champions League final in which Ronaldo has scored, a mark unmatched in the world game.

The two other finals in which Ronaldo scored were the 2008 showpiece in which Manchester United defeated Chelsea on penalties and the 2014 final for Madrid against city rivals Atletico, which his side won 4-1 after extra time.

Shortly after Ronaldo struck, Mandzukic had replied with a cracking bicycle kick to give Juventus hope.

The first half ended one goal apiece but Real Madrid settled the game with two quick second half goals – first a screamer from about the halfway mark by Casemiro before Ronaldo scored his second of the game, ghosting in and coolly slotting a Modric pass past Buffon.

With Juventus reduced to ten men seven minutes to the end of the game, the defending champions completed the rout with a late strike by Asensio to make it 4-1.
