THE BIGGER PICTURE: Ronaldo, an iconic figure at Real Madrid who is now at Al-Nassr, was in the middle of a Saudi Pro League clash as Rodrygo netted his Champions League goal. If he isn't too frustrated by a crushing result against Al-Hilal that damages his hopes of winning a title, he'll probably catch wind of Rodrygo's celebration after his match.
WHAT NEXT FOR REAL MADRID? Los Blanos are set for another Champions League semi-final after a two-legged demolition of Chelsea.
