Champions League By: Ambrose Udeme | 14/02/2018

Real Madrid head coach appeared to lack words to quantify Cristiano Ronaldo's importance to his squad and the Portuguese's quality and attacking instincts.

With his team on the ropes, it was Ronaldo who picked the ball up and converted the penalty to make it 100 Champions League goals for the Merengues. It was to be 101 late on as he found himself in the right place at the right time to put his side 2-1 up.

A delighted Zidane who had a tough 90 minutes on the touchline in a post-match reaction said: "We played a good game all the way through. We pressed high and continued to play our game even when they went ahead. It was a deserved win.

"It’s difficult to say the same thing about Ronaldo every day. He keeps doing amazing things."

Rabiot broke the deadlock to put PSG in front, Ronaldo leveled with penalty and bundled in a second after the break that was followed by Marcelo's left-footed finish from close range.

Next up for Ronaldo and his team-mates is an away tie against Real Betis in the League on Sunday before heading to Leganés on Wednesday, February 21 for another La Liga fixture.
