Cristiano Ronaldo: Scored a superb hat-trick in Real's thrashing of Galatasa

Cristiano Ronaldo: Scored a superb hat-trick in Real's thrashing of Galatasa

The UEFA Champions League returned on Tuesday night and arguably the greatest competition in the world produced some more brilliant football. Sky Sports has rounded up three of the best goals and you can watch the videos, check out the Opta analysis and vote for your favourite.

GOAL A: Vladimir WEISS, OLYMPIAKOS v Paris Saint-Germain

Trailing 1-0 to PSG striker Edinson Cavani's opener in this Group C encounter in Greece, former Rangers and Manchester City man Weiss brought Olympiakos level in some style in the 25th minute on Tuesday night. The forward darted down the right before cutting inside and nutmegging Marquinhos. Inside the area, he then beat Thiago Silva, arguably the best defender in the world, with a wonderful shimmy before his deflected shot went past goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu at his near post. Sky Sports co-commentator Don Goodman said: "It is wonderful skill. He has absolutely no right to score." Unfortunately for Olympiakos, they would go on to lose 4-1 through two second-half goals from Thiago Motta and a later Marquinhos effort.

GOAL B: Yaya TOURE, Viktoria Plzen v MANCHESTER CITY

With City already in front in the second half through Edin Dzeko's goal, midfielder Toure sensationally doubled his side's advantage against Czech Republic minnows Viktoria Plzen. In the 53rd minute, the Ivory Coast international collected a pass from Samir Nasri in the inside left channel before taking a few strides in field. Toure then unleashed a searing, curling and dipping 25-yard effort which arrowed into Plzen goalkeeper Matus Kozacik's top-left corner. Sky Sports' Martin Tyler said: "Perfection from Yaya Toure." Sergio Aguero would add City's third goal shortly after.

GOAL C: Cristiano RONALDO, Galatasaray v REAL MADRID

Fresh from his lucrative new contract, Ronaldo demonstrated exactly why he is worth such astronomical money in Real's record-breaking 6-1 thrashing of Galatasaray in Turkey. The Portuguese superstar had already scored twice in the second half in Istanbul but he saved his best until last. With Real already 5-1 up in injury time before the final whistle, Ronaldo collected the ball from Karim Benzema on the edge of the box and produced a trademark stepover to break into the penalty area. He slid past three Galatasaray defenders before blasting an effort inside the far post from the corner of the six-yard box.
