Ronaldo had scored twice against Juventus in last year's Champions League final win in Cardiff and took under three minutes of Tuesday's quarter-final first leg to haunt the Italian giants again as he fired in Isco's cut-back, netting for a record tenth consecutive Champions League game.
When Cristiano Ronaldo said in an interview in March that he was the greatest footballer ever - many chuckled and guffawed.
"I have to say thank you, Grazie, to all the supporters of Juventus".
"Well, for me it was an unbelievable moment", Ronaldo said. They are making a big deal because it's Ronaldo, and with good reason.
Buffon, though, could only stand and watch as Dani Carvajal floated a cross in from the right which Ronaldo, with his back to goal, dispatched into the top corner with a perfectly-executed overhead kick.
Ronaldo is a champion at an extraordinary level.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri admitted he was amazed by Ronaldo's ability. The Liverpool winger, meanwhile, also struck once in Champions League qualification and scored another in the FA Cup. However, when it comes to Goal of the Season, we may already have a victor.
Cristiano Ronaldo's goal is one for the history books.
Marcelo then made it 3-0 to kill off the game, and the tie effectively, but all anybody was talking about afterwards was Ronaldo's overhead kick. I think the game was fantastic, we scored three goals against Juve - a great team. "Certainly it's my best goal".
An ESPN and Dario AS journalist, who is more commonly known on Twitter as MisterChip, revealed that Ramos' 222 yellow cards with Real Madrid make him the club's most booked player. Ronaldo exchanged passes with Benzema before poking the ball to James Rodriguez, who then lofted it into the box. "I am the coach, but also a football fan".
"With the Scudetto and the Coppa Italia it would be a very positive year, and we know that here we need to try and win the Champions League, which is definitely more hard but now and in the future it's something we want to do".
