WATCH: Cristiano Ronaldo equalizes for Real Madrid! [1-1]

Real Madrid were not deserving it, but Cristiano Ronaldo equalized and put his team back into this game after a terrible start from the midfield line and the defenders.

James' assist in this goal should be noted, but also Carvajal's good pass to set the Colmbian up. It's true that Cristiano Ronaldo just needed to push the ball into the net, but that's just where a striker needed to be. Ronaldo is slowly becoming a center-forward, and given his physical abilities and his goalscoring instinct, he could be one of the greatest.

This goal could be very valuable, as away goals are always extremely important in this competition. But Real Madrid better not settle for a draw, as Juventus could control the game more comfortably. This would be dangerous considering how poor Real Marid's defensive midfield and defenders have looked since the match kicked off. 33 minutes in, Juventus 1-1 Real Madrid.
