He always knows when there's an important occasion and he's going to be there.
"All I ask is that they don't boo me here, that's all", Ronaldo said. What he did is outside any sort of category. "When I first spoke with Simba we discussed how long I spend traveling and they were interested to see if they could come up with a way to bring the comfort of sleeping on your mattress at home to an airplane".
A diving header from Ronaldo with 14 minutes left looked to have been enough to send the Spanish side through, only for freakish own goal from Real captain Sergio Ramos to levelled things up at 3-3 overall.
Few matches in world football stir up passions like El Clasico and no debate divides opinion more than that of who is the greater individual talent between Madrid's ultimate Galactico Ronaldo and Barcelona's king Messi.
"I want them to stop booing me because I always give my best and even when I don't score I try to help Real Madrid".
In addition to that, Bayern had key midfielder Arturo Vidal sent off after he received a yellow card for what was a perfectly timed tackle.
But things quickly changed in two decisive games against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals, when the star forward scored five goals to keep alive Madrid's hopes of retaining the trophy.
Ronaldo was again subjected to boos from the demanding Bernabeu supporters despite scoring four times in the two-legged tie in a 6-3 aggregate win over the German champions.
The draw for the semi-finals takes place on Friday morning.
Ronaldo scored Madrid's goal with a header, then put the team in control in extra time with a close-range shot in the 105th minute.
After an assist in Munich and a stunning goal in the return leg, Asensio is being widely tipped to start tomorrow's Clásico against the side who tried to sign him from Mallorca three years ago.
"We have accepted the outcome, but we also analysed what was wrong on the pitch".
"Yes, we conceded two goals, but Real Madrid is used to this setback, we won and we are all very happy".
"The Champions League was important for us but it's unfortunately over".
