Cristiano Ronaldo scored a 90th-minute winner against Man City that made him forget he was sad and drove Jose Mourinho to ruin a perfectly good suit. After a drab first half in which City keeper Joe Hart blocked everything Ronaldo and Real Madrid could blast at him, the second half finally came to life when Edin Dzeko scored in the 68th minute to give the visitors a lead and spark Real to push out of their slump.
Marcelo equalized in the 76th minute, then Aleksandar Kolarov put City back on top in the 85th minute. Karim Benzema equaled against just two minutes later and Ronaldo scored the winner with a shot that caught Hart by surprise and dipped just below his reach before bouncing in to give Real a 3-2 win. Unlike his goals against Granada a few weeks ago, Ronaldo actually celebrated this one and he even smiled as he did so.
Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, sprinted out of Real's dugout and did the power slide he reserves for only the most "f*** everyone!!!" moments.
Here's sped-up video of the goal and celebrations, which somehow makes it all the more entertaining...
