WATCH: Cristiano scores panenka penalty

New, comments

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 72 Champions League goals, and this was a good one. Ludogorets player Marcelinho was sent off after saving a good Varane header just before the ball went in, and Cristiano Ronaldo converted this panenka penalty.

Ronaldo is always confident from the spot, but this penalty kick is above that level. While it's obvious that Real Madrid pretty much have nothing at stake in this match, Cristiano Ronaldo's accuracy as Real Madrid's penalty taker is tremendous.

Gareth Bale will surely want to score in this one, as the referee called the penalty right when Bale was pushing the ball to the back of the net.
