I thought the keeper was a lot closer to me and had a chance of diving back and maybe clearing it. My instinct took over to make sure that it went over the line. I’ve apologised to Cristiano. Src
The goal was credited to Ramsey as the scorer and it means Ronaldo has not broke the record of scoring against the most number of teams in Champions League and he remain stuck with Lionel Messi and former Real Madrid star Raul.
