Cristiano Ronaldo scored the latest in a long line of Champions League goals at an important time, heading home a James Rodriguez cross from point-blank range to make the score 1-1 in Real Madrid's Champions League semifinal first leg against Juventus. 

After finding space between three Juventus defenders, all Ronaldo had to do was nod the ball over the goal line, after Rodriguez's jumping lob put the ball on the platter for the Portuguese. 

The goal is Ronaldo's 54th in all competitions this season, nine of which have come in the Champions League. It's also his 76th Champions League goal, giving him sole possession of the Champions League all-time goal scoring record ... at least until Barcelona's Lionel Messi (on 75 goals) ties or surpasses him.
