Watch: Cristiano Ronaldo dunks the ball on the goal line

Wednesday May 4th, 2016

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in a number of ways for Real Madrid, but his latest attempt on Wednesday was something new. 

With Real Madrid leading Manchester City 1-0 in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal, Ronaldo had a ball served to him by the goal mouth. With it out of his reach for a leaping header, Ronaldo did the only sensible thing: Grab it with two hands and slam dunk it over the goal line.

Ronaldo was offside to begin with, so the play was all for show. Regardless, it made for one unique highlight on the Cristiano career reel.


​If and when Ronaldo does score in this season's Champions League again, he'll match his own single-season record of 17 goals.
