Just when you think you've seen it all from Cristiano Ronaldo, he breaks out something new to put everyone's jaws right back on the floor. In stoppage time of Real Madrid's match against Valencia, down 2-1, Ronaldo pulled off a backheel a bit reminiscent of what Zlatan Ibrahimovic did against Bastia earlier this season to salvage a much needed point.

That goal keeps Real Madrid in contention for the league title as they now sit five points back of Atletico Madrid with a game in hand and three matches left to play. It also makes Ronaldo the first player in the history of Spanish football to score 50 or more goals in four consecutive seasons. That's just madness.
