Karim Benzema scored the only goal of the second leg in a 1-0 victory for Real at the Bernabeu.

And Los Blancos reacted to the Frenchman’s performance by tweeting: “Mr Champions League.”

However, supporters of ex-Real star Ronaldo were left far from impressed.

That’s because they believe the Portugal legend is the ultimate Champions League player.

But he only has 88 goals in the competition, the fourth-highest in history.

And Ronaldo fans believe their man has been greatly disrespected by Real as a result.

One said: “Rare L. There’s only one Mr Champions League and that’s Cristiano Ronaldo.”

Another declared: “Don’t disrespect Cristiano like that.”

One noted: “Show some respect to Cristiano.”

Another added: “That’s a bit shameless considering it is always going to be Cristiano.”
