The Portuguese star, who never scored at Anfield in his five previous attempts, but the 29-year-old striker quickly notched a brilliant goal in 22 minutes of the game.
It was Ronaldo’s 20th goal of the season and 70th in Champions League history. Here’s how Twitter reacts to the goal..!

Cristiano Ronaldo scores his 70th goal in Champions League history, one more than Lionel Messi (69). He’s one off Raul’s (71) UCL record.

Skrtel would’ve stopped that if he was a less timid defender. Tidy goal though.

Ronaldo now one goal short of pulling level with Raul as all-time Champions League top scorer (with 71)
