All the 3 strikes were triggered off by Cristiano-legend-Ronaldo himself on Tuesday, just like when these sides met last November in the League. But the Frenchman is not letting his guards down yet.

Cristiano tried to give everyone a fair chance, by foregoing goal-scoring for the first 26 games of his Champions League career. Lucas Vazquez did well to get in round the back and find Ronaldo, who had time to take a touch and send Oblak the wrong way. We played a fantastic first 30 minutes, had many chances for a second goal, but we did it in the second half. We also managed to achieve our target of winning and keeping a clean sheet here at home.

"It was a complete performance and we performed very well right from the first whistle to the last". There's still a long way to go, both in LaLiga and the Champions League. We haven't won anything yet.

"That's why I say that, with dedication and hard work, as always, things come naturally". We'll enjoy this one tonight and then rest up.

Atletico boss Diego Simeone, meanwhile, told his side to forget their latest derby demolition and hope for a miracle at the last European match at their Vicente Calderon stadium next week. "Atletico are very good, but we must be careful on Wednesday".

"The team is phenomenal, yesterday was further proof that the team is good and confident and to win 3-0 is huge".

"Football is a marvellous game and anything can happen".

"He has the instinct for goals, he's unique", said Zidane. I'm pleased because whenever a player comes off, whoever comes on does a great job, it's impressive.

"We know football is a box of surprises and for that we need to be wary. I'm pleased with all of my players".

He added: "I am lucky to have these players".

Great game! We need the same again next week!

"He has got a big decision to make at the end of the season and it would not surprise me if he left to go to the Premier League or to Inter Milan".

"I listened to my dad talk for 20 years about George Best and Pele and Cristiano Ronaldo is easily the equal of those", Neville, who was at Bernabeu to witness the game, wrote in his column for BBC.
