Cristiano Ronaldo latched onto a bouncing ball from a Bale backheel in the Borussia Dortmund box and lashed it home to give Real Madrid the lead in their Champions League match this Tuesday night.

And to celebrate his opening goal, Cristiano Ronaldo ran straight to his coach, Zinedine Zidane, and hugged the Frenchman. A pointed gesture to put an end to several days of controversy after Ronaldo reacted badly to being taken off in the game against Las Palmas, with 20 minutes to go. 

Ronaldo upset at substitution

Ronaldo was clearly upset at being taken off, and footage later shouted he swore in frustration while sitting on the bench. 

While Zidane played the incident down, it appears there's nothing like putting the ball in the back of the net to calm troubled waters.
